DCI hosted an annual end-of-summer golf tournament last month at Newcastle Golf Club to benefit Childhaven! 288 golfers from the A/E/C industries, plus 100 DCI and Childhaven staff, enjoyed a day of golf and fundraising activities. Out of town DCI staff came from offices in Anchorage, Alaska; Spokane, Washington; Missoula, Bozeman, and Kalispell, Montana; San Francisco; and Los Angeles.
Ask an engineer, architect or developer about the future of building, and it won’t be long before you hear three letters – CLT. But what is CLT? And why is it all the talk in industry circles?
In celebration of Engineering Week 2014, DCI Engineers had the pleasure of being a part of the Greater Spokane Incorporated’s, Business AfterSchool program. This program introduces area students to high-demand industries and demonstrates to them what skills and educational paths will be required. We had the opportunity to give the students a tour of one of our project sites, the Convention Center Hotel located in Spokane, Washington and illustrate to them the scope of planning and cooperation that goes into building a 716-key hotel.
Revit has quickly risen to prominence as a tool of collaboration in the A/E/C industry. DCI BIM Coordinator Tom Whitehead has been tasked with implementing DCI's long used and deeply customized AutoCAD program and standards into Revit. Recently he attended the ‘invite only’ Revit Gunslinger event in New Hampshire. As one of only forty Revit users invited to this event; it's safe to say that Tom Whitehead is a bona fide gunslinger of the Wild Wild Revit West. We sat down with Tom to get a look into his history with Revit and to have a peek into the future of BIM.
We sat down with our October DCI Expert in the Spotlight, Richard “Dick” Hemmen for a Q&A session about Seismic Renovations and Tenant Improvements. Hemmen, who has worked on many seismic renovations and TI’s, shares with us the importance of maintaining a buildings structural components for the occurrence of a seismic event.
