As always, we had a wonderful time exhibiting at the SEAOC Convention. This year, the Convention was held in Indian Wells, California. Besides the well-presented technical content and catching up with our friends and colleagues from the California design community, we were also pleased to see that Jacobs had entered a project featuring our High Strength Connectors for the SEAOC 2014 Excellence in Structural Engineering Awards.
JACOBS SEAOC 2014 Awards EntryWe snapped a shot of Jacob’s poster board for their entry, which describes the complex challenges of the project including having to construct within an active refinery operation and only being able to land columns “where there was space”. Their board also notes their use of “drop in” braces equipped with our High Strength Connectors and the associated benefits in providing “ease in erection and smooth flow of forces”.
