DOB COOP 2017 Full Scale Exercise - SEAoNY Members Only!
To ensure that the New York City Continuity of Operations (COOP) Program meets the high standards set out by Executive Order #107, the DOB Continuity of Operations / Emergency Management Team in collaboration with the FDNY scheduled the mandated annual exercise at Fort Totten - Queens on May 9, 10, 12; and June 1, 2.
Please note the May 11th session has been cancelled.
I. Participants’ familiarization with COOP requirements and procedures – operational plan for preparedness, response, and recovery.
II. Learn how to conduct post-major disaster RAPID & DETAILED structural damage assessments by using Global Positional System the Collector for ArcGIS Application.
III. Demonstrate the capability of department’s inspectorial staff and professional architects and engineers to conduct Rapid and Detailed Structural Damage Assessment – as a core competency of the city emergency response.
Participants will review the Construction Codes, FEMA and Applied Technical Council (ATC) requirements for Building Damage Assessment process - determine if structures that sustained incident-related damage are safe to enter/occupy
- Post Disaster Structural Rapid Assessment (RA)
- Post Disaster Structural Detailed Assessment (DA)
- Evaluation of Empirically Designed Structures and what steps will be taken afterwards by recovery / restoration operations.
Participants will perform field assessments with a timetable, site map, and RA & DA forms on selected buildings within “damage zone,” and be concluded as
- Green (Inspected) or - Yellow (Restricted Use) or - RED (Unsafe)for ensuring the safety and welfare of building occupants, and further actions to repair, safeguard and re-occupy.
VENUE: Fort Totten – Queens
DURATION: One Working Day - from 8am to 4pm; expected Arrival: not later than 7:30 am
IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION- Participants are required to wear a hard hat on the day they attend the COOP training exercise
• DOB COOP Full Scale Exercise training participants are to meet at the parking lot of Fort Totten, preferably by 7:45am. The parking lot is located just before the security gate entrance, and a small sign reading “DOB participants” was placed in front of the parking lot.
• If for some reason they do not find people there, the bulk of the training takes place at the EMS Academy CFR Training Building 405. If people are lost, they can ask For Totten employees where that is, and they should be directed to the correct location.
• Dmitri Dits and Elidia Tennenhauser were the COOP coordinators at the training, and participants could likely contact them for further information.

12th Annual SEAoNY Education Foundation Golf Outing
Support a great cause while improving your handicap, getting some sun, and mingling with colleagues! Join us Monday, June 12th for a day on the links in support of the SEAoNY Education Foundation.
Proceeds from the golf outing provide scholarships for students who are chosen by that year’s Honorary SEAoNY Member. This past year, scholarships were awarded to Jonathan Rodriguez and Christopher Sholy, who are both students at Rutgers University.
In addition, each year the Education Foundation provides a scholarship to a high school senior from the Urban Assembly School for Design and Construction to support them as they go on to represent our industry and become leaders in promoting our profession. Last year’s scholarship winner was Nicole Henriquez who is now attending the University of Buffalo.

The SE3 Project: Engagement and Gender Equity in the Structural Engineering Profession
This lecture is presented by Rose McClure, PE, SE, Co-Founder of SE3 Project
In early 2016, the SEAONC SE3 committee administered a nationwide survey of employee engagement and gender equity in the structural engineering profession, for which they received over 2,100 responses. The survey investigated a variety of measures of engagement (satisfaction) and equity including, but not limited to, career advancement, compensation, and work-life balance. This presentation will share the most significant findings of the 2016 study, including why 56% of respondents have considered leaving the profession, the prevalence of the gender pay gap, and the importance of workplace flexibility.
The Structural Engineering Engagement and Equity (SE3) Committee is a committee of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC), whose mission is to study engagement and equity in the structural engineering profession. For more information, visit www.se3project.org.
Rose McClure, PE, SE is the co-founder and past co-chair of the SE3 Project. She is a senior engineer at Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, where she specializes in the analysis and design of foundation systems, and the repair and rehabilitation of existing structures. Rose earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Cornell University and her Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering from MIT. Rose is an active member of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC) where she currently serves as chair of the Continuing Education Committee (CEC), past chair of the SE3 Committee, and as member of the Existing Buildings Committee (EBC).

SEAoNY Upstate Syracuse Seminar - CLT Solutions: Addressing Common Design Challenges
Now available to North American building designers, cross laminated timber (CLT) offers the structural simplicity needed for cost-effective projects, as well as benefits such as fast installation, reduced waste, improved thermal performance and design versatility. This presentation will cover some of the more challenging aspects of CLT building design, including fire and life safety, lateral and seismic design, acoustic performance and building envelope. Resources available to design and construction professionals, such as the new US CLT Handbook, will also be discussed.
Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) is working to better represent all of the Structural Engineers throughout the state of New York. This year we plan to start by beginning a new chapter in Syracuse, New York. Our goal is to introduce our organization to upstate professionals in order to advance the profession and foster forums that allow professionals to meet and discuss their experiences.
