Structural Engineers Association of New York
January 23rd 2018
6:15PM - 8:00PM
Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place
The structural engineering community of New York City and the Tri-State area recently lost one of its stalwarts. From his time in private practice to his long involvement with the New York City Planning Commission, Irwin G. Cantor has contributed enormously to shaping the New York City skyline and the practice of structural engineering in the New England area of the United States.
Throughout his life, Irwin was constantly recognized as a great mentor as well as a champion for always upholding high technical and ethical standards in the practice of structural engineering. After his passing on November 7, 2017, Irwin Cantor's influence on the profession and the city continues in the form of his numerous mentees.
Please join us as SEAoNY pays tribute to an exceptional engineer and citizen. Colleagues, friends and close mentees of Irwin Cantor will honor his memory by sharing some of the lessons he taught them, and how those lessons that have helped in shaping their own personal lives and professional careers. The evening will also feature a retrospection on Cantor's outstanding work.
1.5 PDH Ethic Credits will be offered
Registration opens at 5:45pm. Seminar begins promptly at 6:15pm.
This event is free for SEAoNY Members and $10 for non-members.
The event will take place at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place.
SEAoNY's 2018 All Day Seminar:
The Ever Changing New York City: Building Renovations and Alterations
February 06, 2018
The New York Academy of Sciences
From its bridges to its exemplary skyscrapers, New York City has a very diverse number of structures. As the city continues to add to its cadre of skyscrapers and iconic buildings, its stock of existing buildings is also being repurposed and transformed into homes, work places, places of worship, recreation and culture.
With building owners having an eye on sustainability, coupled with the city's focus on resilience, several buildings are being renovated and refashioned to meet more elaborate design standards and stricter regulations.
The 2018 SEAoNY All Day Seminar presents a host of industry professionals on the topic renovations and alterations. Please join us as these visible experts discuss the challenges - some of which are inherent to designing in New York City - involved in the execution of renovation and alteration projects and how to address them.
