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.
Moderator: Cas Bognacki, PE, Chief of Materials Engineering, The Port Authority of NY & NJ

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.
