Tim Love at Structures Congress 2014
Tim Love was the keynote speaker this past Saturday at Structures Congress 2014, the annual gathering of the Structural Engineering Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers. His speech looked at Boston as a way to examine the challenges faced in cities by engineers, architects, and real estate developers. His talk explored the issues of air rights, oddly-shaped parcels, the interplay between new construction and historic buildings, and the role of restrictive regulations on structural framing solutions. He appealed to the structural engineers in the audience to use their knowledge to impact planning and development decisions much earlier in the design process.
