We keep up-to-date on the latest industry news, and we thought we'd share some of our favorites with you.
The times are a-changin', and so is the technology available to revolutionize the practices of structural engineering, architecture and manufacturing.
Our project section displays a large range of industries we support.
November 19, 2014 – We congratulate our architectural team members on receiving honor awards from AIA Minnesota: Snow Kreilich Architects for Brunsfield North Loop Apartments and Lake Minnetonka Retreat Home, and HGA Architects and Engineers for Northrop Auditorium Renovation at the University of Minnesota. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve as structural engineer of record on all three projects.
October 23, 2014 – Mid-century Modern buildings in the Petrified Forest National Park, whose structural restoration is being aided by MBJ engineers, were recently designated a national treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. To preserve these iconic structures, MBJ’s engineers are designing structural remedial solutions for foundations, masonry load-bearing walls, and slab-on-grade structures. Originally designed by architects Richard Neutra and Robert Alexander, these buildings express the architectural aesthetic of an age when National Park tourism was at an all time high. Read about the history of these buildings here.
September 25, 2014 – MBJ Principal Daniel Murphy, P.E., was a presenter at the International Concrete Repair Institute (Minnesota) Fall Technical Session, September 25, 2014, speaking on the topic of “Cold Weather and Concrete.” His presentation covered the challenges of placing concrete during the winter months, temperature effects on cure time and elasticity, and special cold climate considerations such as temperature fluctuation and salt corrosion.
