Senior leaders spanning several Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) technical groups and office locations will participate in this year’s American Society of Civil Engineers Virtual Technical Conference (ASCE V-Tech), which will take place 14-18 September. This year’s online conference will feature experts from across ASCE’s technical areas to explore the future of the AEC industry, share best practices, and celebrate recent successes.

On the final day of the event, SGH Senior Principal and Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) Past President Amy Hackney will give the opening remarks for a series of sessions – “High Performance Buildings: Building the Future” – and lead a closing panel discussion on the same topic. “We are living in a time where a multitude of factors evolve the way we live our life and interact with our environment,” said Amy. “I am looking forward to facilitating this exciting conversation to see how architectural engineering firms can find creative and innovative ways to push the envelope with high-performance design.”

SGH staff members will moderate discussions and present alongside industry peers throughout the V-Tech proceedings.
