Sharing Engineering Insights on Tackling Climate Change

We were honored to share our structural engineering insights on sustainability at the Christopher Kelley Leadership Development Program (CKLDP) on “Tackling Climate Change” held on April 12th, 2024.

“James Chavin-Grant, PE, SE, CDT [of SK&A Structural Engineers] began the conversation with some actionable design strategies for structures which focused on efficiency in material usage and analysis of specific areas rather than applying the same standards across a whole building.”
