April President's Letter

I wanted to start off by thanking James Pajk, P.E. from the Franklin County Engineer’s office and Richard Engle, P.E. from E.L. Robinson Engineering for presenting the Dodridge Street Bridge project during the March luncheon. In addition to the lunch presentation both James and Richard were able to provide a tour of the project site and
give the group an up close view of the current stages of construction.

March President's Letter

I would like to thank those of you that were able to attend the E-Week luncheon in February. Once again the planning committee did a great job on providing a topic and presentation that is relatable to all disciplines of engineering.

February President's Letter

In January, ASCE and SEAoO provided an interactive presentation by Mr. Bill Lantz, P.E. from Shelley, Metz, Baumann Hawk, Inc. of a case study which documented the caisson foundation and structural failure of a medical facility. The presentation discussed missteps, remediation and solutions that were taken by the entire design and construction team during the construction and remediation stages. I wanted to thank Mr. Lantz for providing the group with this very insightful presentation which I hope we can all take the lesson learned and prevent this from happening on future projects.
