Dan Bergsagel from sbp will introduce the principles of a Circular Economy in the construction industry. He will touch on how structural engineers can maximize the reuse of material in their work through designing for deconstruction, working with clients to deconstruct their projects to salvage material, and designing with reused materials in mind for new construction.

Gregory Kingsley from KL&A will present a detailed steel reuse case study of the Boulder Community Hospital and associated local projects, including lessons learnt and important considerations for the future of structural steel reuse.

  • Gregory R. Kingsley, Ph.D., P.E.

    Dr. Kingsley is the President and CEO of KL&A, Engineers and Builders. The firm, now celebrating its 30th anniversary, was started with the idea of integrating steel design and construction, a combination that has turned out to be ideal for embracing the vision of a circular economy as it pertains to steel structures. Greg’s current passion is using his position as a structural engineer to reduce the embodied carbon impact of the built environment. This has led not only to work in structural reuse of steel, but also to his leadership in the rapidly growing field of mass timber construction.
