|STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY PRESENTATION
AIA/CES APPROVED PROVIDER
Crosby Group provides a unique service to its clients in the form of an AIA/CES Approved (1 AIA/CES Learning Unit/HSW) presentation on the
latest in Structural Technologies. This presentation visually and graphically informs designers
and owners of what it means to design for earthquakes; i.e., what is the impact of earthquakes at
the various seismic levels and how buildings will perform at those levels. We then discuss the newest
technologies that have come out of Japan, Italy, etc. that we can implement to mitigate seismic damage;
i.e., un-bonded braces, composites, passive dampening, base isolation, etc. See some of the poorest
performing structures and why they failed in earthquakes all over the world.
WHAT FIRMS HAVE TOLD US ABOUT OUR PRESENTATION:
Contact us at (650) 367-8100 or email Patrick Crosby, S.E. if you're interested in a very educational and informative AIA/CES Approved presentation of the latest in Structural Technologies.
"We at CAS Architects were fascinated and impressed with Patrick Crosby's knowledge of
the new structural seismic technologies. The Crosby Group has the tools and know-how to support
the collaborative / innovative design team approach. Patrick Crosby is a structural engineer who really knows."
Anthony Matisi, Principal
"While I was very familiar with the ideas of base-isolation as a method of mitigating
the destructive potential of earthquakes, I found the alternatives of unbonded bracing and passive
damping to be very interesting. The notion of dissipating energy in the structure instead of resisting
the force of a seismic event was a completely new idea to me. Thank you very much for your interesting
and informative presentation."
