Lunch will be provided

7 HSW hours

This two- part program will address the lessons learned from building failures caused by natural and man-made disasters as well as the liability issues arising from those failures.

Joe Lsitburek, Ph.D, has described his all day presentation as “not about gold and platinum albums or R&B, soul or jazz but earthquakes, nor'easters, floods, fire and snow.  The physics and technologies are well known…it’s just that the loads are greater.  What lessons have we learned from hurricanes Katrina; Harvey; Sandy; the Northbridge earthquake; the California Thomas wildfires; and ultra-efficient building enclosures that have no energy flow and therefore no ability to dry should they get wet?  Does trying to save energy to prevent climate change that can damage structures cause more damage to the structures than the damage caused by climate change?  The Second Law of Thermodynamics points out that there is no such thing as a free thermodynamic lunch. This presentation tackles the often competing goals of energy efficiency, health, safety, comfort, durability and resiliency and focuses on what failure has taught us.”

To complement Dr. Lstiburek’s presentation, SCOTT SMITH of Smith Brothers USA will discuss the liability issues that result from these kinds of failures: What effect does climate change have on the Design community?  Scott Smith will discuss risk considerations and critical contract clauses to help protect designers from the storms that lie ahead.

PRESENTERS:
A building scientist who investigates building failures, JOSEPH LSTIBUREK, B.A.Sc., M.Eng., Ph.D., P.E., is a principal of Building Science Corporation and an ASHRAE Fellow.  He is also an Adjunct Professor of Building Science at the University of Toronto.  Dr. Lstiburek received an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, a master’s in Civil Engineering and doctorate in Building Science Engineering from the University of Toronto.   A licensed Professional Engineer since 1982, he has been referred to by The Wall Street Journal as “the dean of North American building science.”

SCOTT SMITH is a principal at Smith Brothers Insurance, LLC where he leads the Design Professionals’ practice group. The Design Professionals’ team serves the insurance and risk management needs of over 1,000 architects and engineers in the Northeast. Scott is on the Board of Directors for PLAN (Professional Liability Agents Network), a non-profit organization made up of specialized professional agencies working with Design Professionals.  Smith Brothers Insurance is an independently operated insurance, risk management, and financial service organizations.
