Tarrytown, NY – Thirty-Eight engineers attended this years Continuing Education Seminar at the elegant Tappan Hill Mansion on Wednesday, June 15. The topic of this year’s seminar was “Solutions For Today’s Construction Engineering Designs” and was worth 6 PDH (HSW) credits for each engineer. Once again we had a fabulous roster of speakers including William S. Phelan, Sr. VP, from The Euclid Chemical Company, Michael J. Squarzini, PE, Sr. Principal, from Thornton Tomasetti, Alfred H. Brand, PE, Sr. Partner, from Mueser Rutledge Consulting Engineers, Andrew J. Burns, PE, Operations Manager, from Posillico Drilling, Inc. and Anthony P. Carlucci, Esq., from Welby, Brady & Greenblatt, LLP.
Following the morning classroom session on subjects such as construction, concrete and steel design, it was time to take a ferry ride to actually go look at some. The course participants departed the Tappan Hill Mansion and boarded two luxury motor coaches for a pier in Rockland where the ferry gave a group of ore than 100 contractors and guests, including members of the diplomatic community, an up-close view of the construction of the New NY Bridge (replacing the Tappan Zee Bridge).
Presentations by Tappan Zee Constructor’s Project Executive Walter Reichert and Dan Marcy of the New York State Thruway Authority provided the narratives to a very compelling project that has emerged from the depths of the Hudson that now spans three miles of river.
