  • President's Message: April, 2017
    The past two months have gone by quickly as we prepared for and celebrated our very successful Pro-Fair in March. Our February meeting, Dynamic Facades, was presented by Felix Weber and Galen Burrell of Arup. By highlighting some of Arup’s more recent projects, such as the Al Bahr Towers in Abu Dhabi, Felix and Galen showed the technical complexity of their façade designs. As Earl Carter (CADE Architectural Resources) noted: “Felix Weber and Galen Burrell were articulate, intelligent presenters and their innovative work with dynamic shading is inspiring to many of us in attendance, regardless of industry.” These projects are truly inspirational – both technically impressive and beautiful.
  • Remembering Herman R. Hoyer FCSI, CCS
    Our dear friend and long-time member of SF CSI, Herman Hoyer was memorialized on February 17, 2017, after passing in August 2016 at the age of 89. He was an active leader in our Chapter serving many roles as well as president in 1970-71. He joined CSI in 1963 and was an outstanding mentor, educator, leader and inspiration to many members for more than 50 years. In 1972-73 he served with distinction as the Vice President of the Institute, one of the few from the West Region and the San Francisco Chapter.
  • Building Technology Education Program
    What's happened to the Building Technology Education Program? Following Bob Johnson's, FCSI & Distinguished Member, initial suggestion for this in June of 2012, there were many encouraging comments on the benefits of this for CSI and for our industry contained in two threads on the 4specs.com discussion forum.  The Institute's task team also issued a positive report on the topic at the Institute convention in 2013.  But since then, the topic seems to have gone dormant.  This is not good.  It's not good for the many architects and spec writers who would benefit from the program and it's not good for the Institute when this program could have beneficial effect on CSI membership.
