CRAN: Adjacent Construction: Managing Risks in Dense Urban Residential Construction [Webinar]

October 20, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
 Add to Calendar



Two professional engineers who are highly experienced in the forensic evaluation of problems and failures in buildings present an enlightening program on lessons learned. Citing examples of new construction projects built in close proximity to existing buildings, they will address residential construction in particular to explore key concerns, and opportunities to identify and manage risk.

At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify possible hazards of adjacent construction during below-grade work, above-grade work, and after completion of a neighboring building.
  2. Describe general goals and methodology for preconstruction surveys of existing buildings and infrastructure, including condition assessment and risk identification.
  3. Understand the advantages and challenges of various stabilization approaches, including underpinning, shoring,and strengthening.
  4. Describe guidelines and applicable standards for monitoring vibration and movement of soils, foundations, and structures before and during construction.

Live Q&A will follow the presentation.



David E. Kosnik, Ph.D., P.E.
Dave draws from his dual background in civil and computer engineering to develop innovative performance monitoring and evaluation solutions for in-service infrastructure and machinery, including risk management and mitigation for construction, blasting, and resource extraction near occupied structures and facilities. Dave is the author of many peer-reviewed articles on structural monitoring and related topics, and is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences.

Michael J. Drerup, P.E., F.ASCE
Mike has 25 years of experience in the performance, repair, and preservation of existing buildings and structures. He has led and executed dozens of condition assessments and failure investigations, including multifaceted field and laboratory studies of construction materials and systems. Mike has been an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers Forensic Engineering Division since 2001, including a term as Division Chair. He is a sought-after speaker, and has published and presented throughout the United States and abroad.

Organized by AIAPV CRAN Committee for the Capital Area CRAN (Custom Residential Architects Network, an AIA Knowledge Community), a tri-chapter committee founded jointly by AIA|DC, AIA Northern Virginia and AIA Potomac Valley.
