New research report containing fire resistance and performance provisions for Concrete-Filled Composite Plate Shear Walls (CF-CPSW) aka SpeedCore is set to be published this month. Read about it in ENR: Speed Core Research Tunes System https://t.co/rCGt1iLpwx
"What is our next moon shot?" Read more about the collaborative development of the EC3 Tool in this article from the Carbon Leadership Forum. https://t.co/tiyQYQNlWj
MKA's Don Davies explains how the EC3 Tool raises the bar on the AEC industry and helps building teams evaluate a project's overall EC emissions during design & procurement. Grateful for the collaboration with our many partners on this continuing project.
Congratulations to the entire team on the launch of the Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator tool at GreenBuild 2019! MKA and the MKA Foundation are proud partners. The EC3 tool is now in Public Beta. Find out more at https://t.co/WfgkB2WH6U
Here's the countdown for launch of the #EC3tool. Phil Nortcott of C Change Labs and Don Davies of @MKA_Inc push the button live in the #Greenbuild19 sold out workshop! We must take brave bold action to address #embodiedcarbon. Access tool at https://t.co/FZdB4uj3AN
MKA, through the MKA Foundation, is proud to be an Industry Sponsor providing both financial and intellectual leadership to this forward-thinking, breakthrough tool: the Embodied Carbon in Construction Calculator (EC3)!
Building Designers - @PankowFdn is pleased share "ASCE/SEI Prestandard for Perfomance-Based Wind Design" with thanks to our co-funding partners @aisc @ACIFoundation @MKA_Foundation and ASCE ILC. Great job @ASCE_SEI https://t.co/evD3wruitr
Celebrating the topping out of Rainier Square Tower in Seattle today! It's the FIRST high-rise use of #SpeedCore (a concrete-filled composite plate shear wall system) topping out in just 10 months thanks to the amazing steel fabricators & erection crew! #mkawesome #researchrocks
Structural Engineers - Check out @PankowFdn new research report Substantiating Design Coefficients and Factors for Coupled Composite Plate Shear Walls-Concrete Filled, RGA #05-17 by Michel Bruneau @UBuffalo and @prof_varma @PurdueEngineers
The Embodied Carbon Calculator for Construction is an open source tool that tracks emissions of raw building materials helping better report and reduce embodied carbon. Thanks to Prof. Kate Simonen of UW for her continued championing of the project!
