A cool concept we discovered this week is the Iron Ring. Apparently, Canadian-trained engineers receive a ring at the end of their training as a symbol of the responsibilities and ethics associated with their work. Conceptually, the ring is to serve as a reminder of the high standards engineers are held to but our question is... what do the architects get?
Maybe we should start our own tradition.
Anyway, we're very lucky to work with a great team of structural engineers so ring or no ring, we love working with you guys:
Brett and the crew at Swenson Say Faget
Mark Speidel and Victor Martinez at I.L. Gross
