First Place – MSE Wall Design

We’d like to congratulate Cal Poly Pomona’s team for their astounding performance during the national competition for the MSE Wall Design.  This is a great accomplishment to be added to the multiple successes the civil engineering students at Cal Poly Pomona have had throughout the years.   Thanks again to those who devoted countless hours to this project!

Skanska Site Visit

As announced at our meeting, there will be a tech tour this Friday which will run from about 9am to 2pm.  We will be meeting at Skanska’s Riverside office at 9am for a safety meeting, then we will go to the site from there in Skanska trucks (you cannot take your own vehicle to the site).  On site we will see CIDH Piles being built, Stone Columns, and various temporary retaining structures.  
 
Please send an email to briandavd@gmail.com if you’d like to participate.  Be sure to let me know if you need a ride so we can sort that sort of thing out.  Space is limited, so reply quickly for a spot!
