Green Engineering [G7]

When it comes to structural design of green buildings, the environmental impact of individual framing materials is a common consideration. However, the role of the structural engineer is much more than that of simply a material specifier. Efficiencies in the design process, including the use of BIM, can have a significant impact on the environmental footprint of the framing system. Two representatives from Thornton Tomasseti will discuss the sustainability goals of their firm and the practices they use to help reduce the carbon footprint of their projects.
