We would like to honor Mr. Peter Emmons Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer of STRUCTURAL, as a newly initiated chapter honor member of the University of Maryland Chi Epsilon.
Mr. Emmons graduated from the University of Maryland in 1973 with a degree in civil engineering. His contributions to the civil engineering profession are an exemplary model of the four pillars of Chi Epsilon: scholarship, character, practicality, and sociability.
Emmons is the author of the book, Concrete Repair and Maintenance Illustrated, first published in 1993 and now viewed as the standard reference in the field. He was the keynote speaker for Suit Up & Be Civil 2018 and frequently donates tools to the UMD Concrete Canoe team.
A few of us got together for a site tour at Clark Construction’s Wheaton Public Improvements Project!
The Wheaton Public Improvements project is a 14 story core & shell office building for Montgomery County (multiple offices, Parks & Planning Department will own the building). There are 4 stories of below-grade parking and 150 geothermal wells drilled 600′ in the ground underneath the building which they are working on connecting horizontal for the next month or so. Currently, the job is at the bottom of the hole (50′ in the ground) and concrete for the site will begin next week. They just finished demolishing a 3-story office building across the street and will be building a town square and amphitheater in that space over the next year. The building is going to have two green roofs and solar panels when complete.
Thank you Clark Construction for the site tour!
