Champlain Towers South – WJE Collapse Investigation

In the early morning of June 24, 2021, the eastern half of the 12-story Champlain Towers South Condominium collapsed, killing 98 residents of the 40-year-old building in Surfside, Florida. WJE was retained by attorneys representing the condominium association to determine the cause of the collapse and provide litigation support. Based on document review, field investigation, material testing, and analysis, we determined that the collapse was initiated by punching shear failures in the pool deck slab, which failed columns at the south face of the building, leading to the collapse.


The Parametric Genome – A Structural Approach

Data has become an essential tool for decision making in today’s modern world, across all industries. Clients are looking to engineers in all fields to deliver them the information necessary to make key business decisions and develop building designs. In the field of structural engineering, the presented data may vary; it may be structural steel tonnage for various floor framing configurations and column spacings, it may be economy scale applied to a repetitive connection type, it may be structural optimization for lateral drift or serviceability of a high-rise, or it may literally be anything else. The potential uses of data derived from computational, or computer-aided, algorithmic design are virtually limitless.


NCSEA’s committees strive to enhance the standard of practice in structural engineering.
