In our busy fast-paced industry, we often forget the importance of being face-to-face learning from others. Joseph B. Callaghan, Inc. believes in supporting our engineers and staff in developing both technical skills and business acumen. For this reason, we were excited that two JBCI engineers attended the 2017 Structures Congress in Denver. Structures Congress is a conference organized by SEI, a community within the American Society of Civil Engineers.

 

Erik S. Villari, PE, Senior Project Manager, and Benjamin Bruening, PE, Project Engineer, joined hundreds of structural engineers from all over the country to take in the current state of the industry. They networked with engineers doing similar or adjacent work in other states to share knowledge and attended technical sessions on topics from dealing with the challenges of a changing workforce to upcoming code changes and ongoing research that could change the way the profession operates.

 

JBCI will keep you posted on other conferences and events we’ll be attending. We look forward to seeing you!
