Structural Engineering Innovations in Commercial Construction

August 31, 2015

Over the summer, Cody|Brock Project Managers, Project Engineers and Summer Interns sat down with Steve Duquette, Structural Engineer at Duquette Engineering, to learn about the latest Structural Engineering innovations in commercial construction. Topics covered how today’s technology and current building codes have affected and changed the structural engineering industry; an explanation of the boilerplate seismic upgrades required on the standard Bay Area tilt-ups and how to look for them; and different types of “shoring” such as earth retention and cement deep soil mixing (CDSM), the latter of which was used in the Presidio Parkway/Doyle Drive Replacement Project, shown here in the beginning stages.
