Lecture: New Amsterdam Court House

Many challenging tasks lie ahead for us engineers in the coming years. Social themes such as urban densification, the energy transition, the response to climate change, the further pursuit of sustainability and the mobility revolution will collectively shape and determine the building agenda. As engineers, we are in the position to make a difference and play a decisive role in responding to these grand social challenges. Moreover, addressing and negotiating these challenges requires an integrated building approach.

In this seminar, the New Amsterdam Court House (NACH) will be used to demonstrate how integrated building approaches are applied to a large-scale, complex building project. This example effectively illustrates the integration of civil engineering with other disciplines in order to arrive at a surprising conclusion that concerns us all.
