K1         Wednesday Keynote
           A Visual Tour of Pittsburgh's
           Architecture and Engineering Heritage
            Wednesday 12:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. 1.0 PDHs
            Speaker: David J. Vater, RA, and Trustee, Pittsburgh
                       History & Landmarks Foundation
From its founding in 1758 and the construction of Fort Pitt––the
most elaborate British fortress in North America––to the world’s
first “green” convention center, Pittsburgh has been a place
of building innovation. This fast-paced visual tour will highlight
Pittsburgh’s iron and steel industry, incline and bridge-building
tradition, a cultural palace for the people, and 20-century
skyscrapers––built for both a university and major corporations.
In the presentation finale, you’ll see some of the great places
built in America with Pittsburgh steel, engineering expertise,
and technology.

                                                              Seismic Design,” published in Connections VI, the proceedings of the

                                                              significant opportunity to reduce the size and cost of seismic gusset plates

                                                              practical approach that lets the bend line in the gusset occur in an elliptical
                                                              pattern rather than the straight line approach that has been used to date.

            Moderator: Peter Frantz, Canam Group Inc.
This session describes the particular design, fabrication and erec-
tion challenges that were all eased by an early collaboration for the
construction of the new 18,087-seat hockey arena built in Pitts-
burgh, PA for the Pittsburgh Penguins franchise. The early selection
of a fabricator and erector (Structal) by the SAE (Sports and Enter-
tainment Authority of Pennsylvania) was the start of a collaborative
design and construction of this schedule-challenged project in a
busy market. The structural engineer (Thornton Tomasetti) had come
up with a light and easy-to-build structural frame that was meeting
the client's expectations. The fabricator and the structural engineer
worked together to finalize the details that can make a project a suc-
cess or a continuous battle. While the general concept remained
untouched, member types, connection types, and interfaces with
other trades were optimized for shop and field simplicity.

N68        Competing with "Wal-Mart" Detailers
             Thursday 4:15 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. 1.5 PDHs
             Speaker: Brad Lange, Weitz CPD
The "Wal-Mart" mentality has come to detailing. Fewer numbers of
projects along with outsourcing to other countries has made detail-
ing a mere commodity. More and more DB/CM/GC's are buying
their detailing direct. Offshore detailing firms are actually offering to
do small jobs for free! You can't, and don't want to beat their prices,
but how do you compete in a global market? During this interactive
session, we will discuss how in a tightening market, the steel detailer
of the future must diversify their portfolios, and market their products
and services to new customers. In order for detailers to maintain
their standard of living, they are going to have to offer more and/or
different solutions to a new and changing customer base including
owners and structural engineers.

N69        Erection Considerations for
           Wind Turbines
            Thursday 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. 1.0 PDHs
            Speaker: Eddie Grunewald, Barnhart Renewables
            Moderator: Kenny Waugh, I.M.P.A.C.T.
Wind turbine erection presents logistical, technical and meteoro-
logical challenges to the contractor. These are often exacerbated
by the topography and physical size of a wind farm project. The
session will provide an overview of the process; from turbine com-
ponent receipt to mechanical completion. Two case studies will
be discussed by a contractor who has erected more than 1,800
utility-grade wind turbines.

  Cathedral of Learning
     The Cathedral of Learning, a historic landmark, is the second-tallest education building in the world—42
       stories and 535 ft tall. It is also the geographic and traditional heart of the University of Pittsburgh
          campus. Begun by Chancellor John Bowman in 1926 and dedicated in 1937, the building was
             realized with the help of contributions from men, women, and children throughout the region and
                the world. During the peak of the Depression, when funding for the project became especially
                   challenging, school children were encouraged to contribute a dime to "buy a brick." In addi-
