NJIT CoAD Students To Present Storm Resilient Design for the Jersey Shore

Professors and students from the NJIT College of Architecture and Design (CoAD) will present a program on storm resistant design for the Jersey Shore on Monday, June 24, 2013 from 1-4 PM at VFW Post 2140 in Long Branch, NJ. The program is free and open to design professionals, public leaders, and others interested in storm resistant design. The Storm Resilient Design program is sponsored by NJIT and the Mid-Atlantic Precast Association (MAPA).

After an introduction by Greg Winkler, AIA (Executive Director of MAPA), Thomas Dallessio, Project Manager of The NJIT Center for Resilient Design, will present a brief summary of the goals and programs of the new center. Mohamed Mahgoub’s (Assistant Professor, NJIT Dept. of Engineering Technology + CIM Program Director) talk about resilient concrete engineering and the work of the NJIT Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program will be followed by student presentations. NJIT CoAD students Nicole Gabbard, Gajun Lau, Travis New, Katherine Isidro, Steven Staronka, and Michael Nieves will be showing the work they did with their studio instructors, Matt Burgermaster (Assistant Professor, NJIT CoAD) and Tom Ogorzalek (University Lecturer, NJIT CoAD).

The students who will be presenting were participants in two spring semester design programs within the NJIT College of Architecture and Design that focused on resilient construction using precast concrete. The studios were jointly sponsored by MAPA and the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute Foundation (PCI Foundation). 35 students participated in two design studios in the second year of this program.
