We are proud to be a part of such an amazing engineering community. #structuralengineering #neverforget

The events of 9/11 are indelibly etched into our minds; we all remember exactly where we were and who we were with when we saw the iconic World Trade Center towers fall. We also remember the heroic efforts of the first and second responders, and the enormity of all of the lives lost and impacted that day.

As we honor the 20th anniversary of 9/11, NCSEA—in conjunction with SEAoNY, the American Institute of Steel Construction, The American Society of Civil Engineers, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), and SEI— would like to honor and recognize the structural engineers who offered their expertise during and after this tragedy.

The chimps explored parts of their new Primate Forest home for the first time last week, and even helped film the experience.

For those of you having to home school young children this year, here are some fun activities to share with them so they can discover their inner Structural Engineer! These were developed by practicing engineers, and through the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA), have been used in schools across the country. Kids love these STEM activities!

Chimp Readiness Level 8 has been reached, just a few weeks until all of the mesh is on and they can be let loose to swing, jump and play in their new outdoor habitat. The Oregon Zoo Primate Forest has nearly transformed from concept to reality! #oregonzoo

No, it's not a water park...it's a robust exhaust system for a new full-floor chemistry lab in Klamath Hall at The University of Oregon. Finding spots for over 150,000 pounds of new equipment and ductwork on the 1950s era concrete roof was a challenge we relished! Great job TVA Architects, BHE and LCL Construction--awesome team effort!
