Stephen Cohen, Chairperson
- Be a resource for the SEAU Board of Director. Help the Board further the goals of the organization in relationship to seismic and other issues.
- Help other committees where needed with seismic issues.
- Interface with the National Council of Structural Engineers (NCSE) on common seismic issues.
- Solicit input from both SEAU membership and its board of director to help the committee develop a SEAU
consensus guideline document defining appropriate requirements for the upgrading of existing building. Have the document-adopted statewide. Or recommend a developed or in development document that will provide the same type of result (a safer building environment in the State of Utah).
- Probe the possibility of developing a unified state approach to aid school districts manage and replace existing schools that are seismically challenged. Should schoolwork require that the EOR
be a SE? Should only SE's do school review? Is value engineering only a cost cutting activity or does it provide real value to the projects?
- Continue to monitor what California does in relationship to the IBC and seismic provisions.
- Develop a five-year plan of action (goals).
