A Grateful Industry Recognizes Structural Engineers
on the 20th Anniversary of 9/11

As the nation solemnly marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we'd like to take a moment to thank a very special group of people who answered the call and offered their expertise in a time of great need: structural engineers. 

As first responders combed through the debris at ground zero, engineers, many of whom were affiliated with the Structural Engineers Association of New York or other member organizations of the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations, kept them safe by ensuring that the partially collapsed structure was sound as excavations progressed in precarious conditions. In fact, during the search for victims and clean-up, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration identified more than 9,000 hazards; though there were a few injuries, none was life-threatening. This is a remarkable achievement given the nature and complexity of the work, and structural engineers played a major role by using their unique skills and knowledge to help others do what they do best—a true demonstration of the unity and teamwork that marked the immediate response to the attacks. Continue Reading

 

CALL TO ACTION  

As leading professional institutions of the structural engineering profession, we [CASE, NCSEA & SEI] unequivocally denounce the senseless death of George Floyd. This and other tragic events of recent weeks have brought forth numerous stories from our members who have suffered discrimination, injustice, or intimidation, or have feared for their safety. We must identify and eradicate behaviors that perpetuate racism and inequality within our profession. We recognize change is everyone’s responsibility and that we will only succeed through sustained, collective action at individual, organizational, company, and societal levels. Continue Reading
