NCI Building Systems hosted a one-day continuing education seminar in Houston about building design for tornados. It was attended by engineers from across the country last Friday, October 11th. Top researchers in the construction-engineering field came to share their wisdom through in-depth presentations and interactive question and answer sessions.
The NCI Building Systems Continuing Education Seminar for Engineers was held at the Sheraton North Houston Hotel and offered presentations from five leading experts in a range of engineering disciplines. Bill Coulbourne, P.E., was the keynote speaker. Coulbourne is a national expert in wind and flood mitigation and he shared his recent findings on the topic of building design for tornados, with a focus on recent cities that were affected like Joplin, Mo., and Moore, Okla.
Close to 100 construction engineers from across the country attended the event to hear the cutting-edge research on building design first hand.
