RE: Re[2]: FW: seismic loads on post tensioned conc parking stru

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I really didn't want to get into this ***** contest, but I couldn't stand it
anymore. First of all, I believe most structural engineers could find work
easier w/o architects than architects could get a building permit w/o an
engineer. Second, if some regulatory agency determined that there were way
too many licensed professionals out there, I believe architects would face
more scrutiny than engineers.

Fortunately, the architectural clients I've had the last couple of years
don't have your ego problem and we get along nicely. They do their job and I
do mine.

Based on your e-mail address, I believe reality is a long distance telephone
call for you.

Really.......without architects, structural engineers would be scratching
for clients  - don't bite the hand that feeds - also an antagonistic
relationship between architects and engineers of any kind serves no purpose
to further separate the professions which should compliment rather than
against eachother.

Yes, but "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet". So what if Ross is
licensed architect and not an engineer, the guy is still "The Bomb" when it
comes to the structural engineering of post tensioned concrete parking
structures. Don't get so hung-up on titles.
