Training Course Syllabus:


The role of Structural Engineering in our society goes largely unnoticed until there are catastrophic events such as earthquakes, hurricanes and terrorist attacks. Each of these events results in personal tragedy as well as economic loss. In the constant attempt to control costs, structural engineers are under increased pressure to create less costly structural solutions even though the old saying, 'Nothing is free' certainly applies. Learn how you can make informed decisions regarding where to save money in the building structure and provide the best value for protecting life and property.

Seminar highlights:

  • Present the applicability as well as the pros and cons of conventional structural building materials
  • Means to mitigate damage to building structures subjected to natural disasters and terrorist attacks
  • Economically assess different structural systems
  • Understand the legal responsibilities of the engineer-of-record, the delegated engineer and the contractor

Learning objectives:

  • The attendee will be able to understand the cost impact of planning for catastrophic events and means for mitigating damage due to these events.
  • The attendee will be able to understand basic structural engineering concepts and terminology as well as the basis for selecting cost-effective structural systems.
  • The attendee will be able to learn the legal composition and responsibility of the construction team members: architect, engineer, owner and contractor.
