Picking a Structural System

August 30  | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (Lunch begins at 11:30 am) | 1 HSW

Center for Architecture & Design | 14 E Peace Street | Raleigh, NC

Program:

Have you always wondered why structural engineers pick the systems they do? It’s not always the simplest answer but this is your opportunity to come hear about the decision-making process here at Lynch Mykins Structural Engineers.  Using the Trinity Dormitory at Duke University as an example, Collette will walk you through how to pick the perfect structural system based on the building layout, budget, and schedule.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants distinguish and identify estimated steel and concrete depths for given span lengths, based on tables provided.
  2. Participants translate the relationship between the structural system and the impact that the material selected has on the project schedule and phasing.
  3. Participants differentiate the most efficient structural system for new construction based on the size and building layout.
  4. Participants will determine how to pick the perfect structural system based on the building layout, budget, and schedule.

Presented by:

 

Collette Ramirez, PE

Collette has been helping bring architectural visions to life through structural engineering since 2007. She is passionate about the collaborative process in first designing a building on paper, to then seeing it become part of the built environment. Her diverse portfolio is filled with projects of different sizes and structural systems. Although she loves all of her projects, she especially enjoys working on student centers because they have so many different structural components and are usually the focal points of a campus. While not busy working on her projects you can find Collette spending time with her family, ideally at the beach. She loves learning about new wines while traveling. Her favorite travel destinations are Florence, Italy and anywhere in the Caribbean.
