Spring Seminar 2018: Waterfront Engineering

Spring Short Course and Seminar 2018

Waterfront Engineering – Evolving Practices in Seismic Regions

We are pleased to announce our 35th annual Spring Seminar will be focused on Waterfront Engineering and Construction. This topic was last presented by our group back in 2003 and since then a number of major waterfront projects have been designed and built in Seattle and the greater Puget Sound area. The same challenges exist but we have new methods to use in design and new technology to use in construction. Our region also has unique seismic demands that have evolved over the years that affect waterfront projects. It’s a great time to talk about Waterfront Engineering in Seattle!

Short Course: Waterfront Engineering – Lateral Pile Design for Seismic Regions
When: April 13, 2018 @ 7:00 am 3:30 pm
