Episode 61 - Mighty Buildings show art Episode 61 - Mighty Buildings

The Structural Engineering Podcast

In this episode we talk with Sam Ruben, the Co-founder of Mighty Buildings, a company attempting to change the way we build residential and even commercial structures through 3D printing. At the SEP we believe the future of structures should, and will, look a lot different then our current practice. (Do you know how long we've been building houses with wood!?) If I were to place a bet, I think 3D printing will be a big portion of that, and these guys have a very cool system to help us get there.

Episode 60 - Sustainability with Holmes show art Episode 60 - Sustainability with Holmes

The Structural Engineering Podcast

This week we talk with Megan Stringer and Erik Kneer of Holmes Structures. Both Megan and Erik are committed advocates for more sustainable practices in structural design. I admittedly didn't know how much SE's could do to reduce the total carbon emissions of a building project, but I was happy to find not only do we have a role in this space, but it's truly crucial to a sustainable, low carbon future.

Episode 58 - I'll See You in Court show art Episode 58 - I'll See You in Court

The Structural Engineering Podcast

This week we hear from Sam Mcglamery, Executive VP of vertex engineering. Sam has been a structural engineer far longer than I've been alive. At this point in his career he often uses his knowledge and experience to serve as an expert witness and standard of care expert. We reached out to Sam because we wanted to know the reality behind lawsuits and engineering, how likely are they, and what actually happens. We hope you enjoy.

Episode 55 - A Primer on Forensics show art Episode 55 - A Primer on Forensics

The Structural Engineering Podcast

This weeks guest is a little different than usual. We're talking with Sarah Lazar, a very specific recruiter working for the firm LVI. Sarah recruits for forensic engineering firms and only in the Midwest, but we're not talking to Sarah because we're looking for a job. She is also passionate and knowledgeable about the field of forensics structural engineering and offered to share what she knows with us. we hope you like it.

The Structural Engineering Podcast

Gosh it's been a long time since we've put out an episode, but we're starting this season on a high note. Our first interview this year was with Emily Guglielmo, a principle at Martin and Martin, and a member of the ASCE 7 wind and seismic comities. We learned a ton talking with her over an hour and decided to split the episode up in to bite sized chunks. With that, enjoy part 1.

The Structural Engineering Podcast

This week we talked with Ted Goldstein PE of Tubular Connections and the inventor of the Shuriken nut keeper. We all know tubes generally make for more efficient and compact column shapes, but connections can be a challenge. Luckily Ted's got us covered.
