    Dear SEAoNY members and friends,

    We would like to express our deepest sympathy and support for all the people affected by Hurricanes Ian and Fiona. Many people have been displaced, many lives affected and many homes and businesses damaged. 

    We have been monitoring the post-storm property damage situation to see if there are any requests for support in regard to building evaluations. At least one NYC DOB team has been sent to Puerto Rico. A general call for help has not been received by SEAoNY, nor NCSEA as of yet. This may change at any time.

    We advise our members of the following: If you are interested in participating in any voluntary assistance or technical support, please find information on the SEAoNY SEER Committee page. They are in touch with the branches of government and volunteer organizations that will put out the official request for help.

    Having our members volunteer for one of these deployments is one of SEAoNY's core values. At the same time, we want to keep our members safe. Showing up as an engineering volunteer in one of these stricken towns can be a logistical challenge for our members as well as a distraction or worse to overtaxed local coordinators. We are monitoring calls for help closely and will keep anyone interested updated as the situation unfolds. Notifications will be provided to those who are registered with the SEER Committee.

    AISI STANDARDS COUNCIL SEEKS PROPOSALS FOR
    SMALL PROJECTS AND FELLOWSHIPS TO BE AWARDED IN 2023

    Proposals must be submitted to AISI by October 15, 2022

    WASHINGTON, DC – The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) Standards Council is seeking research proposals for its 2023 Small Project/Fellowship Program. Launched in 2014, AISI’s Small Project/Fellowship Program identifies and provides funding for research projects that will significantly impact the reliability, performance and cost-competitiveness of cold-formed steel (CFS) products. The program provides a streamlined mechanism for AISI’s standards development committees (the Committee on Specifications and the Committee on Framing Standards), industry stakeholders, academics and students to collaborate on relatively short-term, highly focused and mutually beneficial projects.

    The small project and fellowship requests should be developed and submitted by a project team that includes a student (if known at the time of submittal), an academic advisor from the student’s academic institution and an industry advisor. Either the academic advisor or industry advisor must be a member of the relevant AISI standards developing committee. Project selections are based on several factors, including: 1) the potential for long-term impact on the industry, 2) steel industry engagement and co-funding, and 3) results for the AISI standards development committees, the student, and the academic institution. 

    AISI funding is limited to $10,000 on small projects, which include stated deliverables; and $6,000 on individual fellowships, which do not include overhead expenses. AISI anticipates funding three to six projects in 2023. Project ideas may be generated by the AISI standards developing committee, industry advisor, academic advisor or student. A list of potential project ideas is available from Helen Chen, manager of AISI Construction Standards Development, who can be reached at hchen@steel.org.

    Proposals for the 2023 Small Project/Fellowship Program are due to AISI by October 15, 2022. Requests should be submitted via e-mail to Jay Larson, secretary of the AISI Standards Council, at jlarson@steel.org. Winning projects will be determined and announced by the AISI Standards Council by January 15, 2023. 

    AISI’s Standards Council initiates cold-formed steel standards development projects and maintains accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). AISI has a long history of supporting academic research in pursuit of its standards development objectives. These efforts have generally been driven by the AISI standards developing committees and focused on stakeholder objectives. AISI understands that the effective engagement of academics and students is mutually beneficial and often yields maximum benefits for the industry.

    AISI serves as the voice of the American steel industry in the public policy arena and advances the case for steel in the marketplace as the preferred material of choice. AISI’s membership is comprised of integrated and electric arc furnace steelmakers, and associate members who are suppliers to or customers of the steel industry.

    SEAoNY Honorary Member Lecture

    Are We There Yet?

    A Personal History of AEC Innovation


    May 10, 2022

    12:00 PM - 1:15 PM 

    Zoom Webinar

    In 2014 the Harvard Business Review published a ranking of innovation by industry and it was no surprise to see our industry dead last. It’s no wonder that in the last few years we have seen outsized interest in our industry from the venture capital community—we might be the last, stubborn frontier of global proportions.  Everywhere you turn you bump into ConTech and PropTech and the promise (or threat, if you shy from opportunity) of AI and MI. The world has finally caught on. But to understand where we’re going, it helps to look at how we got here. What does all this mean for the future of structural engineering, as a practice and as a career? Here are reflections of a 40-year engineering career, and why I wish I were 25 years old again.


    About the speaker: Thomas Z. Scarangello has more than 40 years of experience leading the structural engineering and analysis of a wide variety of building types worldwide, from long-span sports and entertainment venues to high-rise commercial and mixed-use buildings. With the 2015 merger with Weidlinger Associates, Tom expanded the firm’s service offerings to include transportation, protective design and security, and applied sciences. He is co-chair of the New York Building Congress Council on Innovation and Best Practices and the NYBC Ascend conference. He is also active in evaluating and promoting innovative AEC technology, serving as chair of TTWiiN, an innovation accelerator that commercializes technology spun off from Thornton Tomasetti incubators, as well as driving industry innovation as a member of the BuiltWorlds’ Corporate Venture Forum and as a founding member of AEC Angels.
