Albert Pozotrigo,
President,
ASCE Met Section
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all the ASCE Met Section members and their families a great summer season, hoping that you are all spending quality time together.

As we approach a new year at the Met Section for 2015-2016, I would like to remind everyone that ours is a volunteer organization; and as such, a simple thank you will never be enough to express our gratitude for all of the hard work that our members put in making our group the best there is at ASCE.

Very soon we will be more involved with ASCE events in our Section. One of these events is the ASCE 2015 Convention that will take place in New York City from October 11th-14th. This is the Society's premier membership event. This is the time where we all can get together in one place and we can showcase the diversity that exists in our Civil Engineering Society.

The convention program is vast and includes a large number of topics in a city that has some of the most magical projects built by Civil Engineers.

432 Park Avenue Construction Site Tour Print E-mail
Some say that it is lonely at the top, but the ASCE Met Section's younger members discovered that it is also very cold. To celebrate National Engineers Week on February 24, 2015, Chris Shirley, of WSP, led a YMF technical tour of 432 Park Avenue, a super slim building under construction. Reaching a height of 1,396 feet, 432 Park Avenue is one of the tallest residential buildings in the world. At the top, it felt as if it were 20 degrees colder than at the base of the building.
