ASCE webinar on building condition surveys will help you prevent failures

02/15/2013

Hidden within some buildings are signs of compromised structural integrity. Some of these conditions reveal themselves only in sudden and catastrophic failures. Others are discovered and addressed, while many remain undetected, with the potential for disaster. Their causes are many and varied. ASCE’s new webinar, Structural Building Condition Surveys: Looking for Trouble, will better familiarize you through the study of 30 brief stories of structural building problems discovered through a review -- or identified after a failure. You'll come away with a sharper eye for observing distress that may indicate a structural problem. The program also includes recommendations on when reviews should be performed. The webinar will be held Monday, March 4, from noon to 1 p.m. ET. Get more details and register at the course page.
