The Structural Engineers Foundation (SEF) says sustainability practice leader Gunnar Hubbard will present a lecture about “The Role of Sustainability in Structural Engineering” on April 18 in Chicago.
“Among the significant challenges structural engineers face today, global environmental challenges are becoming a priority,” said SEF board president James Pawlikowski. “Structural engineers must be involved throughout the process to achieve a more sustainable built environment, and we’re proud to host a globally recognized leader in this field for our Spring Lecture.”
SEA says Hubbard is a recognized leader in green building across the United States and in Asia, Europe and the Middle East with 25 years of experience as a licensed architect, consultant, educator and advocate. As a principal and Thornton Tomasetti’s sustainability practice leader, he oversees green building experts in the New York City, London, Chicago, San Francisco and Portland, Maine, offices and collaborates with the firm’s nine other practices on projects all over the globe. As “keeper of the environmental mission of a project”, he guides designers and clients on an integrative path to high-performance green buildings internationally.
The lecture will be held at University Center, 525 South State St., Chicago. The reception will begin at 5:00 pm and the lecture begins at 6:00 pm.
There is no admission charge, but advance registration is requested.
