Event Description: For years, building developers and their teams have searched for ways to optimize concrete mixes for performance, schedule, and reduced environmental impact. Simultaneously, the New York City metro area has been generating far more post-consumer glass than recyclers have a consistent end market use for. In an effort to address these dual challenges, pragmatic thought leaders brought key stakeholders from multiple industry sectors together to collaborate on a solution. Team members worked together over the course of 18 months to begin piloting use of locally recycled ground glass as an ingredient in high-performing concrete with reduced environmental impact.
Come hear the Recycler, the Manufacturer, the Structural Engineer and the Building Owners Representative/Convener discuss what was involved in identifying this solution, whether the idea can be replicated in concrete mixes across the country, and what will it take for the larger cast-in-place concrete and glass recycling marketplaces to be transformed.

Concrete can provide a service life of over 100 years when properly designed, batched and constructed. Many projects, in particular for the transportation infrastructure, require concrete to be designed and built for a service life of 100+ year. Estimating concrete service life, is a somewhat new requirement to the concrete industry, but of great importance. Our speakers will share their methodologies for estimating, designing and constructing concrete structures to provide a service life in excess of 100 years.

This is the eighth year of a respected and internationally recognized survey on the topic of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in the profession of Structural Engineering. Key changes in this year's survey address emerging topics of Risk Management, Laser Scanning, Project Management of firms, recruiting of staff, Level of Development (LOD) in contracts and trends in best practices for model based analysis.
Please take a few moments to participate in the online survey before Jan. 20, 2016:
The overview of the trends the survey has tracked over the last 8 years will be presented in a webinar series with Part 1 beginning Thursday, December 17 at 10am ET. This webinar is in collaboration with the National Institute of Steel Detailers (NISD) as part of their launch of their 2016 Design to Construction webinar series. The following webinar in January 2016 will review the survey results.
Please register for Structures from Design to Construction, Part 1 Introduction on Dec 17, 2015 10:00 AM EST at:

OHNY Weekend Highlight:
Engineering New York
October 17 & 18 2015
New York has always been a city of engineering feats, home to historically important projects-from the Brooklyn Bridge to the subway system to the Empire State Building- that pushed the boundaries of structural possibility. Over the past decade, architects and engineers have continued this long tradition of structural innovation, using new materials and technologies to design and build a new generation of New York icons that advance the art of engineering while enriching the city's built environment.
During this year's OHNY Weekend, Open House New York and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) partner to open a selection of recent projects that illustrate the state of the art of structural engineering in New York City. Tours will help visitors to understand these projects from the perspective of the structural engineers who helped transform them from idea to reality.
Several Engineering New York sites feature Open Access hours; others require Advance Reservations, as noted below. For more information about these sites, or to make reservations where necessary, visit ohny.org/engineering.

AIA NY - Bricks & Beverages: Professionals Play with LEGO Bricks
October 16 2015
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM FRIDAY, ARCHTOBER 16
At The Center for Architecture
In their quest to meet deadlines, architects do not get much opportunity to play at design. The Center for Architecture and LEGO invite young professionals for "Bricks and Beverages," a fun and lively game night that will rekindle our participants' love of LEGOs while enjoying a night out among friends and colleagues.
"Bricks and Beverages" will consist of a LEGO build competition with three architectural challenges. Participants in teams (1-5 people per team) will randomly draw a building type (museum, stadium, theater) and styles (Chicago School, Brutalist, Gothic) from a hat to create a wacky design mandate. A LEGO prize will be awarded to the best team, selected by a panel of judges.
Wine, beer, snacks, and a custom, LEGO-inspired cocktail will be served.
Organized by: Center for Architecture
Co-organized by: AIANY Emerging New York Architects Committee
In partnership with:
Price: $15 for AIA members; $20 for non-members
