  • Providence Engineering will host a special AIA accredited event presentation titled Structural Engineers: Why we do what we do on Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Blair County Convention Center, located at One Convention Center Dr., Altoona. As Design Professionals plan their designs, and as Contractor personnel encounter conditions that just won’t meet design criteria, it is important that they understand “Why” the Structural Engineer produces the designs with which they are engaged, so that all might enter into educated discussions of alternatives. This seminar will provide an overview of what is important to Structural Engineers in the use of soils, concrete, masonry, hot-rolled steel, cold-rolled steel, PEMBs, wood, and fasteners in typical designs. 4 LU/HSW credits are available.
