He is an associate at Skidmore Owings & Merrill in Chicago, where he has worked on tall building and long span structures, with a focus on complex geometry, structural optimization, and digital design. His published research includes work on graphic statics, deployable structures and kinematics, shell structure optimization, and the Airy function. He was involved in the design of the Hangzhou Greenland hanging surface from the beginning of the design process, developing many of the structural optimization and architectural grid / panelization strategies used in the final structure.

Hangzhou Greenland Project

The Hangzhou Greenland Project consists of two 310m high office buildings, a 60-meter span steel bridge between the bottom of the towers, a suspended steel drape roof on top of the bridge, and two retail podiums. The drape structure is a negatively-curved glazed steel surface composed of a series of proportionally scaled hanging catenaries structurally suspended between two towers, which covers a semi-enclosed outdoor plaza on a bridge spanning between the bases of the towers. A glazed steel side wall, cable truss, and waler beam system laterally braces the drape surface to the adjacent towers and the bridge below. Through careful geometric design integration between structures and architecture, all glazing panels are exactly flat, all drape I-section webs intersect with no geometric torsion, and all drape interior I-section members are limited to 300mm deep by 150mm wide (approximately a W12x26), over a 60m horizontal span.

The presentation will cover the combined architectural-structural geometric design and form-finding process and detail the engineering design of the final drape, which is currently nearing completion in Hangzhou.

Design of Spanning Trusses

Design of spanning trusses is a common task in a day-to-day professional life of an engineer. Selection of a proper type of a truss is often left to the experience of the engineer and after the initial selection is made, the truss is designed, and it is unlikely that other truss types or their dimensions are investigated. The design charts are meant to assist an engineer in making an informative initial selection of a truss. The charts guide a designer in selection of the theoretically most efficient topology for a given criteria as well as indicate the potential penalty if the optimal parameters are not satisfied.

In the presentation, a method to design optimal structures considering stiffness and strength of material will be discussed. Also, the process leading to the series of design charts will be explained. The presentation will conclude with an example on how the charts can be used and what potential material savings can these charts bring.

Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts

The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts is a project that involved adaptive reuse and selective demolition of existing structures as well as the addition of an organically shaped folded plate concrete roof that cuts through the site. The existing Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts complex consisted of 7 buildings which were constructed and stitched together between 1937 and 2000. The learning objects of this presentation will include an overview of basic folded plate behavior, design and detailing of an organic folded plate structure, and coordination during construction administration.

The signature element of the project is a folded plate concrete roof dubbed “The Blossom,” which introduces a new public space at the north end of the project, major circulation through the center of the facility, and a restaurant at the south end. Sloping rectangular columns support the north end and non-prismatic, morphing columns support the south end. The lateral system for the blossom consists of straight and curving shear walls supported on micropiles.

CTA Clark Substation

As part of the Chicago Transit Authority’s Red-Purple Modernization Program, the existing Red and Purple Line track structure north of Belmont Station is being straightened and replaced to allow for improved train service and service life.   This new track structure would conflict with a portion of the existing CTA Clark Substation, which provides power to the track system, at its current building height.   As part of this project, EXP worked with Stantec, Walsh-Fluor and CTA to lower a portion of the existing substation roof structure, while simultaneously keeping the substation active to power the train system. Numerous conceptual solutions were studied early on in design.  The team considered either lowering an entire side of the roof structure or lowering just a corner of the roof structure.

The audience will learn several things about the unique challenges of this project, including how existing roof joists can be cut and re-supported, how a continuous lateral load path can be provided at unique roof steps and how an existing roof diaphragm can be verified, improved, and temporarily supported during construction.

Planning for the Control of Construction Tolerances and Deflections

Contractors desire to build safe, fast and efficiently whilst in full conformance with all project requirements. A frequent cause of contractor, design team and ownership conflict is due to the lack of coordination and planning for anticipated construction tolerances and deflections which often result in costly remedial work. Often there are conflicts between performance requirements of Divisions 3 (Concrete), 8 (Openings), 9 (Finishes) and 14 (Conveying Systems) of the project specifications.

This presentation the importance of the communication of anticipated construction tolerance and deflection criteria between all project team members, and discusses common issues of conflicting modern specification requirements. Construction methodologies; including modeling, field layout and monitoring programs are also presented. Finally, a set of rational deflection and tolerance recommendations and best practices are introduced.

He has also held operational positions as Executive Project Director of the Merdeka 118 in Kuala Lumpur and the Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Merdeka118 Tower

Standing tall and rising above the historic site of Malaysia’s independence, the Merdeka 118 Tower is an iconic landmark address and its futuristic and symbolic design will not only embody the culture and legacy of Malaysia independence, but to harmonize with the adjacent heritage building, including Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara, and serve as a catalyst for the revitalization of a historic district into the future while redefining and weaving into the fabric of Kuala Lumpur Skyline.  The iconic tower is designed with a mixture of diamond shaped facets derived from a traditional Malay “songket” pattern outline to signify the diversity of Malaysians (Fender et al., 2016). The silhouette of the tower's spire symbolizes the iconic image of the outstretched hand of Malaysia’s first prime minister Almarhum Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj when he proclaimed independence at Stadium Merdeka in 1957 (Chin, 2019).

The Merdeka 118 Tower is a Mega-tall building with 118 floors and five basements. Within 292,000 m2 of GFA, the tower consists of 83 floors of office space, 17 floors of luxury hotel by the Hyatt Group, retail, observation deck floors, and a spire rising to more than 160 m to bring Merdeka 118 to more than 640m tall, thus becoming the tallest building in Malaysia, and the second tallest building in the world. 


Beth Suminski, PE, SE - HSS Technical Consultant
Steel Tube Institute/FORSE Consulting

Beth Suminski, P.E., S.E., has worked for over 20 years as a structural engineer in the fields of consulting engineering, software, and continuing education. In her current position with FORSE Consulting, she serves as a Technical Consultant to the Steel Tube Institute, where she continues to pursue both the design and educational aspects of structural engineering.

Navigating HSS Connection Design

As you are likely aware, there have been many changes to Chapter K of the current AISC 360-16 Steel Specification. In 2010, the chapter was titled “Design of HSS and Box Member Connections,” and it contained the majority of the information necessary to design steel connections with HSS members. In 2016, the title changed to “Additional Requirements for HSS and Box-Section Connections”. Chapter K no longer contains all the information needed to design HSS connections, but now consists of requirements that aren’t already covered in other parts of the specification, namely Chapter J. 

This presentation will review how the Limit State Tables developed by the Steel Tube Institute can serve as a ‘roadmap’ for navigating the current specification.  In addition, we will also show how the limits of applicability have been consolidated and the reason behind these changes, to allow for more flexibility in connection types than previously afforded in the 2010 Specification.  Lastly, this presentation will step through practical HSS connection design examples, illustrating differences between AISC 360-10 and AISC 360-16 HSS in HSS connection.

Structural Safari

Elephant Lands at the Oregon Zoo is a 6.5 acre project that provides both indoor and outdoor habitats for elephants. The project involved the structural design of over 60,000 square feet of new buildings including elephant management building, indoor viewing building, life support facility, guest services facility. It also included interpretive kiosks, a new pedestrian bridge over the elephant habitat and a trestle for the zoo train. Since elephant live loads are not listed in the building code, the critical first step in the structural design was establishing the design basis loading for the building and site components. For many of the structural components, elephant loading exceeded gravity and seismic loading demands. Structural material selection and detailing was heavily influenced by the need to maintain the health and safety of the elephants, keepers and zoo visitors. Deflection and serviceability were primary drivers in developing a structural design that achieved this performance criteria. There were many twists and turns during design and construction, demanding creative, outside-the-box thinking from the structural engineer.

This presentation will be story-based as opposed to a technical dissertation, so it should appeal to a broad audience.

Tensile Fabric Shade Structures Damage Evaluation

The Mississippi Aquarium opened at the end of August 2020.  The facility features several buildings containing indoor aquarium exhibits, as well as outdoor exhibits featuring alligators, crocodiles, river otters, river fish, and dolphins.  The outdoor facilities featured tensile fabric structures that afforded shading to the animals as well as the visitors.

On October 28, 2020 Hurricane Zeta made landfall at Gulfport, MS as a Category 2 hurricane, with wind gusts recorded nearby at 101 mph.  Representatives of the Aquarium discovered damage to some of the components of the tensile fabric structures, including torn fabric, out-of-plumb steel support posts, and failed anchor bolts.

LPI, Inc. (LPI) was engaged to identify the scope of the damage to the tensile fabric structures, and review the design and construction documents for anomalies.
