Structural Engineers Association of New York


The mission of the Codes & Standards Committee is to promote a greater understanding of current codes and provide technical expertise to various jurisdictions in order to develop and improve future codes. As part of our mission, the Committee may develop guidelines of common practice that will serve the structural engineering community. We will keep communication open between SEAoNY and the New York Department of Buildings (DOB). The Committee will proactively provide opinions and recommendations to the DOB and other professional organizations regarding the building code, respond to requests from the DOB, and keep SEAoNY members informed of relevant code changes.
