Code: 2019WT

Tanya Komas, Ph.D., CPI Foundation

Dr. Komas discusses CPI’s work to train and inspire military service members and connect them to civilian careers while repairing landmark structures. Through powerful imagery, historical connection, and motivational stories, she highlights work at Pearl Harbor, Alcatraz Island, and Pointe du Hoc, Normandy, France, demonstrating how timing is critical for durable structures and our industry’s need to redefine workforce development – particularly with regard to military veterans - as a new market with new rules. The non-profit CPI Foundation is an official US military active duty Career Skills Program, partner of the National Park Service, and partner of industry companies and associations such as SWR Institute whose support makes CPI’s programs possible.

A Rapidly Changing Climate: Threat – and Opportunity - 2017FT

Code: 2017FT

Paul Douglas, Total Weather, LLC
For over 20 years I’ve been seeing the symptoms of a warmer, wetter, more volatile climate showing up in the weather patterns above Minnesota, the nation and the planet. I started connecting the dots, publicly, in the late 90s, before Al Gore came out with his documentary on climate change. There is compelling data - multiple strands of evidence – confirming a planetary warming trend is now well underway. CO2 levels are higher than they’ve been in at least 3 million years, a time when sea level was 75 feet higher than today. Is this just a natural cycle; how can we be sure it’s man-made this time? Where is the evidence?

The climate is changing, it’s us – and there are solutions. A disruptive, clean energy revolution will gradually, methodically wean us off the fossil fuels responsible for the bulk of the warming we see all around us. More Americans will get on board, as solar, wind, energy storage and countless other new, clean technologies provide more energy, at less cost, with far fewer unpleasant side effects. Climate volatility and weather disruption will continue to increase. Everything we create will have to be more resilient, storm-resistant, flood-tolerant and drought-proof; from how we design our cities, build our homes, repair our roads to how we grow our crops. There will be dislocation, but Minnesota will make out considerably better than most of the United States, for a variety of reasons. Solutions won’t come from Big Government, but from the markets - entrepreneurs inventing new, carbon-free ways to keep the lights on, the economy powered up and people employed. The world isn’t ending, it’s warming. That brings benefits and risk, threats and opportunities. There’s no time for gloom and doom. The situation isn’t hopeless – and we aren’t helpless.

Code: 2012W
Learn how to meet the challenges of a remedial project that requires significant coordination, organizational work and communication. The project at Clorox Headquarters consisted of removing the concrete topping slab and existing expansion joints, addressing slope issues at the structural slab, replacing the waterproofing membrane and installing a new expansion joint system. An aggressive schedule coupled with the fact that technical issues could not be defined until the topping slab was removed, made this project challenging and required constant redesign of details and approaches on a real-time basis.

What does it mean if a building is designated as historic?

These regulatory and compliance components are often seen as hindrances; and, if not addressed on the front end of the project, can drastically slow down work.  This session will include examples of local preservation laws and state regulations on historic properties. The local and state level can vary drastically, but each local law will include some key concepts that the SWR Institute membership will likely find helpful.
