JANUARY 2015 MEETING REVIEW

Construction of the Temple Science Education and Research Center

Thanks to Graham Dewar of Turner Construction Company for his presentation on the construction of the building that hosted us at Temple last month! The presentation focused on some complexities of the construction, including excavation supports and curtain wall testing/approval.  Graham also touched on improvements within the construction industry that are currently being implemented including project-wide BIM, and improvements that could be implemented in the future such as IPD (Integrated Project Delivery).





Also presenting was the Temple University Steel Bridge team.  Thanks for the informative presentation on the details of the National Student Steel Bridge Competition rules, and Temple's bridge design.  For further information on the steel bridge competition, visit ASCE's steel bridge website.  Good luck to the Temple University Steel Bridge team this Spring at the regional competition!
