Kelsey West, a Lund Opsahl Associate, recently spent the day at Gig Harbor’s Harbor Ridge Middle School, where students in grades 6-8 participated in CAPE, Career and Pathway Expo, an extension of STEM education.  Lund Opsahl is passionate about opportunities to support STEM-based education!

Students below explored “Column Creations in Compression,” and “interactively” tested theories.  What fun!

We’re thrilled to share the news that one of our own, Associate Principal Adam Slivers was a part of a team that contributed to the recently released book on greenhouse gas emissions for the structural engineering community.  Structural Materials and Global Climate can be purchased from ASCE by clicking this link.

Adam’s passion for the integration of sustainable practices in structural engineering offers cutting-edge value to Lund Opsahl projects. He serves on the Sustainability Committee for the Structural Engineering Institute.

Hing Hay Park’s grand opening celebration, sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, was truly a “grand” celebration!  As a mutli-cultural, multi-generational gathering place in Seattle’s International District, park features include a stunning origami-like sculpture, conceived by internationally-recognized artist Turenscape, customized steps and seating, and performance and game areas.  Elegant lighting showcases the design at night. We’re proud to be the structural engineer for this signature project.
