WACEL Membership Meetings

Plan now to attend upcoming WACEL Membership Meetings.  The April 26th meeting topic is "Wood Construction Inspections" by Bing J. Rao, P.E. - Associate/SK&A MD.

Thanks to the revolutionary changes in the IBC codes and the timely attention on the building material that is friendly and sustainable to an alarming environment, the amount of wood framed construction has seen a recent, exponential increase in terms of volume, complexity, and scale. Bing’s presentation will shed some light about the disconnection between structural designs and construction inspections.  Bing also will advocate for more measureable inspection programs that would more effectively safeguard public safety and stakeholder interests.

Attendees will receive one-hour Continued Education Credit (CEU) for attending this presentation.

Upcoming meeting dates: May 24, 2018 DCRA Special Inspections Manual.
