Topic: Structural Demolition Engineering

Registration Link:

As many projects today require the partial demolition of existing structures, this may present an interesting challenge to the contractor that could need input from a professional engineer.  This presentation will cover special considerations needed when demolishing or partially demolishing an existing building.  These may include demolition sequencing in order to provide a controlled demolition, preserving existing elements that are to remain undamaged during demolition, and shoring of existing structural members.
