NCSEA Forms an Ad Hoc Committee on Sustainability
The NCSEA Board has voted and approved the formation of an ad hoc Sustainable Design Committee. Proposed by Kelly Roberts, P.E., Principal at Walter P. Moore’s Atlanta offices, the committee’s main mission will be to promote sustainable design practices within the profession of structural engineering through leadership, advocacy, outreach and education. With her level of interest and commitment to the concept, Roberts was installed as the committee’s first chair.
Stephanie Young, Principal at Mattson Macdonald Young, and Director on the NCSEA board worked with Roberts to secure the approval needed for the group’s formation. She noted, “Such a committee fits well within the NCSEA structure, due to the strong network of Structural Engineers Associations (SEAs) across the country that are members of NCSEA.”
Initial deliverables of the committee with include creating a web page on the NCSEA site dedicated to education on sustainable design – the best in class resources – as well as articles and direct outreach to the SEAs to introduce the committee and the topic at the local level.
