by Soren Jensen, Technical Representative for RedBuilt
On May 23, RedBuilt™ participated as a sponsor of a seismic design seminar presented by the Structural Engineers Association of Central California (SEAOCC)inWest Sacramento. The seminar provided an opportunity for participants to learn the practical application of specific structural/seismic provisions from the recently updated SEAOCC Seismic Design Manuals. As the Technical Representative for the neighboring North Bay Area, I was able to spend the day at the seminar, meeting people and sharing information at the RedBuilt™ exhibit.
RedBuilt™ participates in and sponsors design community events like this one to continue our learning (individually and as a company), to provide support to our engineering community and to offer other resources we have to other customers.
Many of our Technical Representatives are engineers themselves and like to attend these events to see old friends, develop new relationships and enjoy associating with other engineers. We also like to stay current on trends and topics in engineering, construction and design so that we can continually provide the best service possible.
As an engineered wood products manufacturer, RedBuilt™ is glad to support the design and engineering community. In addition to having an extremely knowledgeable team of Technical Representatives (the average tenure at RedBuilt™ is 17 years), RedBuilt™ is the only engineered wood manufacturer with a team of engineers to support our sales team as well as our customers from specification all the way through to the end of a project. We appreciate both the design and engineering community and want to help them succeed.
When a RedBuilt™ representative attends a seminar or conference, he or she is not only there to support engineering associations, but also to remind engineers that RedBuilt™ and our Representatives are an excellent resource for design assistance and best system analysis. We are available to answer questions and provide guidance at any stage of a project and have expertise in the areas of budgeting, detailing, constructability and product application. We work with both the construction teams in the field and design teams in their office, making us a valuable resource for all parties involved in the design and construction of your projects.
Congratulations to SEAOCC for a successful event and we look forward to seeing you at the next conference, where we hope you’ll stop by and say hello!
