Members of DeSimone’s Chicago team have contributed a research paper for a series on Chicago’s Building Code Modernization by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). The paper was also condensed into a journal article, issued in the latest CTBUH Journal. The paper and article, entitled “Chicago Building Code Modernization: Comparison of Prototype Building Designs”, excerpted below, was co-authored by John Viise, Managing Principal of our Chicago office, Alberto Guarise, Matthew Cummins, as well as Daniel Koch. DeSimone celebrates the contributions of its personnel to the collected body of research on structural design, as well as their own professional development.
