    Due to the current high incidence of COVID-19 in the greater New York City area, we have decided to take precautionary steps and adjust the date for our Boat Cruise and EiSE Awards presentation to Monday, July 11th.

    Our guests, sponsors, members, and staff are the heart and soul of SEAoNY, and we consider it paramount to prioritize their wellbeing, as we joyfully (but prudently) resume in-person chapter events.

    We wish you well and look forward to celebrating with you on July 11th!

    2. Participants will review methods of evaluating adjoining structures in order to protect the health and safety and welfare of the workers and the public.
    3. Participants will review the process required by the 2022 Building Code to ensure safety of occupants of adjoining buildings and construction workers.
    4. Attendees will review examples of past excavations and underpinning accidents in order to mitigate safety risks.
