MARCH 22, 2018 (Thursday)  | 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Geotechnical-Structural Interaction Seminar

Presentation Overview:
This half-day seminar is an opportunity to learn from Geotechnical and Structural engineers how their interaction affects the designs for both professions.  The presentation will cover a variety of foundation systems and how they are selected and evaluated, supportive excavation and the iterative designs between geotechnical and structural engineers, and some newer foundation systems that are a part of the modern built environment.

PRESENTATIONS BY 4 EXPERTS:

Presentation 1:   Structural Engineer & Geotechnical Engineer, Working Together
The design of support of excavation is one of many challenges where a back and forth between two engineers is necessary to ensure safety and stability at the heart of a building structure.
PRESENTERS:

Bill Walton, PE, SE, F.ASCE, D.GE  |  Senior Vice President, GEI Consultants
Michael Flynn, PE  |  Project Manager, GEI Consultants


Presentation 2:  Foundation Selection 101
This presentation will provide a high-level overview of various foundation systems and highlight the typical subsurface conditions (geology) in the Boston basin and how they affect foundation selection and design.
PRESENTER:
Damian Siebert, PE | Geotechnical Discipline Leader, Haley & Aldrich


Presentation 3:  The State of the Art in Geotechnical Engineering
Loading to new heights, pushing the capacities of foundation elements. The presentation will include the use of high capacity micropiles, latest trends in ground improvement, and the implications on the allowable capacity of the changes in the Building Code allowable material stresses on driven piles.
PRESENTER:
Kelvin Wong, PE  |  Project Manager, Haley & Aldrich

Presentation 4:  Seismic Design & Building Code Updates for 9th Edition
Seismic design loading is unique in that it comes from the ground up.  Learn the intricacies of the geotechnical impacts from seismic design along with code updates to the 9th Edition Mass Code
PRESENTER:
Jean Louis Locsin, Ph.D, PE  |  Senior Technical Specialist, Haley & Aldrich

MARCH 24-25, 2018 (SAT-SUN); Optional March 26 Program
Architectural Aluminum in the 21st Century: Design & Preservation of Contemporary & Historic Architecture
Organized by Technology & Conservation, the MIT Museum, and the Boston Society of Architects' Historic Resources Committee
This intensive conference will be held on the MIT Campus in Cambridge, MA on SAT-SUN, March 24-25, 2018 (with an optional program Mon., March 26). It will explore technical and practical issues involved in keeping new and existing aluminum facades, windows/other building components, structural elements, and artistic works in good condition and will probe the cost-benefits of procedures for preserving and protecting these building envelopes, components, bridges, ornamentation, and sculpture. The conference also will look at several innovative uses of aluminum/aluminum alloys in the design of new structures.  Presentations by more than 35 renowned architects, engineers, conservators, designers, scientists, and aluminum industry leaders on the use of aluminum in the construction and care of structures in the built environment and in the fabrication and conservation of works of art. View the link below for more info. Continuing education credits available.

APRIL 23, 2018 (Monday) | 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Post-Disaster Building Safety Assessment Training

PRESENTER:
Scott Nacheman, PE, co-chair of NCSEA’s Structural Engineering Emergency Response Committee (SEER), assisted by one or two local Cal-OES trainers.
OVERVIEW (further details forthcoming):
This full-day session will focus on how to conduct post-disaster structural evaluations for use by state and local emergency management agencies.  It will follow California’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal-OES) training procedures, and will qualify attendees as Cal-OES structural evaluators.  This session will be of particular interest to structural engineers, architects, and local building officials.  
This training will serve as an update to the Post-Disaster Safety-Assessment Program (SAP) Evaluator Training presented in September 2013 by the Massachusetts Engineers & Architects Emergency Response Committee in collaboration with MA Task Force-1, SEAMASS and SEI Boston Chapter.
7.0 PDHs will be awarded, including NCSEA Diamond-Certified.  Pricing and Registration details To Be Announced.

WHEN: Monday, April 23, 2018
Registration is from 7:30-8:00 a.m.; The program begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes at 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Kostas Research Institute at Northeastern University, Burlington MA  Directions
