This week we talked with Annie Kao, the Vice President of Engineering at Simpson Strong-Tie. Annie brings insight for both an engineering and management prospective. During the episode we discuss the culture of Simpson Strong-Tie, why Toyota is important, and how to be a successful engineer. If you want to learn more about the Toyota philosophy check out the book (link below).

In this episode, we speak with Bob Johnson, a Chicago native and distinguished structural engineer that designed parts of the Chicago skyline. Bob's LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/in/robertbrandtjohnson/ Video of Bob work:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iTK9lizgLgReach out to SE Podcast via: WebsiteInstagramLinkedInFaceBookYouTubeEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.com 
We're talking with Kevin Lamalva this week of Warrington Fire all about PBSFD. If you've never heard of this, in short, its using additional strength within the structure and rigorous analysis over a "blind" application of fireproofing material. There are a number of advantages here, from potential cost savings to a more defined level of performance. Traditional fire rating is terribly outdated, and PBSFD is on it's way to becoming a competitive technique. Kevin is the Author of many design guides, references, and white papers on the topic, and is truly one of the experts in the field.

Warning: This is not an episode we know all that much about! We talked with Kevin LaMalva who wrote the book (many of them) on performance based fire engineering. This is not that episode, that comes next. Before we get to the high level, Zach and I try to learn for ourselves what the IBC says about fire proofing, how it is applied, and what structural engineers should know.  Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E
Fast + Epp has become world renown for innovative and beautiful design in mass timber. As a fairly small firm with 35 years of experience behind them they have managed to work on some of the most exciting and structurally creative projects you're likely to see across the US, Canada, and Europe. We talk with Ian Boyle, one of the principals of Fast + Epp about not just mass timber, but the design philosophies of Fast + Epp and much more.Enjoy Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E
We recently had the opportunity to chat with Luis Duque, a bridge engineer in Boulder Colorado and the host of the 'Engineering Our Future" podcast. Luis created began his podcast to share his experiences navigating the early stages of an engineering career. His episodes discuss everything from nailing a resume to managing work life balance.  Check out his podcast on any major platform, or through his website: https://www.luisfelipeduque.com/ Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E
This week we're talking with Thor Matteson, A structural engineer in California, and the inventor of Skinny Braces. These unique braces attach a ductile fuse to an old fashioned cantilever column system to create a chimera of unmatched R value. Or really, you get to use an R=6.5, just like a wood framed shear wall. This gives you all the benefits of a cantilever column system without the huge footings and low R. The skinny brace is aptly named because it takes up a tiny amount of space compared to the competitors in the soft story retrofit space.

This week we chat with Blake Larsen of Larsen structural Design. Blake has done something that many of us dream of, a few try, and very few do well. That's start his very own engineering company, and grow it to be a success. If you've ever considered going out on your own, this episode is for you. Website: theengineeringpodcast.comEmail: info@theengineeringpodcast.comInstagram: @structure_3dLinkedIn: linkedin.com/company/structural-engineering-podcastFaceBook: facebook.com/structuralpodcastYouTube: youtu.be/KMSE1Nywa3E 
This week we have an awesome chat with awesome framers (Check em out on instagram) to answer questions live on Instagram with a group of contractors. It was a real blast sharing what we could and learning a lot about what we can do to make their job easier, and produce better structures together. We talked for two hours, so I cut it down to two parts. we hope to do it again some time (with better audio quality hopefully), so please enjoy part 1@AwesomeFramers We're trying something new this year to help keep the podcast up and running and hopefully get even better.

This week is a quick Max-and-Zach-isode. No guests, just the two of us giving our two cents on the use of BIM and its alternatives in the construction world.
