“The Structural Engineering Implications of

Architectural Design”

Key Note speaker, Peter Standen, will address architect’s frustration as their designs and visions are compromised by structural limitations, builder’s approaches, inflexible consultants and site complexities. We invite you to join us in this evening of networking and a presentation tackling questions such as: why some engineers insist on putting portal frames in houses? Why do the basement walls have to be so thick?
Bar and Registration opens at 6pm Please be seated by 6:30pm.
