CSCE NLT: Climate Change: Current Issues for Civil Engineering


Date: March 13, 2020

Time: 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Infrastructure is traditionally designed with the assumption that the climate is stationary. Given the broad scientific consensus that global climate change is now occurring on a time scale shorter than the life of most infrastructure, it is clear that our design criteria must be adapted to take climate change into account. This presentation will provide a picture of future climate projections across Canada and the expected impacts of climate change on our infrastructure.

Speaker: Jean-Luc Martel , PhD, PEng, MCSCE

Jean-Luc Martel joined the firm Lasalle | NHC in 2018 as a project engineer. He has a Ph.D. in hydrology and climate change from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). He has published scientific papers and presented his research at international conferences. In addition to working at Lasalle | NHC, Dr. Martel teaches fluid mechanics and water resources at ÉTS.

CSCE Dinner Presentation: Calgary Cancer Centre - A World Class Facility


Date: March 19, 2020

Time: 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM


Located at the Foothills Medical Centre Campus. Anticipated to open in 2024, the new Calgary Cancer Centre will centralize treatment and care for cancer patients in southern Alberta. Symbolizing the type of care a patient can expect to receive, the design features two curving L-shaped forms that come together in an embrace surrounding an all-season exterior garden as the “heart”. The heart will provide year-round access and views to nature for patients and their families as they receive care and treatment. This is the second largest cancer treatment and research facility in North America and is located on the site of Alberta’s most important medical campus, in a key urban location in Calgary. The presentation will include an overview of the project and a discussion of the unique structural design challenges that were encountered as a result of the building’s distinctive geometry and use.
