CISC British Columbia hosted a steel breakfast symposium on February 23, 2018 at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel.

Michel Bruneau, Ph.D., P.Eng., professor of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at the University at Buffalo, spoke on his evaluation of the post-earthquake effects in Christchurch, NZ. Bruneau shared his insight on the reconstruction of the city, specifically on the structural engineering decisions to transition to steel from concrete, which was used in majority of buildings before the earthquakes destroyed the city.
