Perhaps more intriguing; what systems and strategies worked well and which are under performing. The home owner has offered to share the home’s data tracking information with those who are interested.

Time: The tour will begin at 11 a.m. and last until approximately 2 p.m. 

Cost$20 for AIA Members, $25 for Non-Members.

Upon RSVP, the address of the home will be provided.  We will meet at the home 15 minutes prior to the start of the tour. We sincerely hope you will take advantage of this opportunity, and join us for this building tour.

RSVP to Mark Barone, AIA [email protected].

See you there! 

Thank You,

NEWS AND UPDATES – DISASTER ASSISTANCE TRAINING HELD AT NJIT

AIA-NJ HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE
NEWS AND UPDATES – DISASTER ASSISTANCE TRAINING HELD AT NJIT
by: Laurence E. Parisi, AIA – Regional Disaster Assistance Coordinator.

Two individual AIA-NJ training sessions were held on April 1st and 2nd. The first session was for Architects with prior Disaster Assistance Training to become certified as Trainers, to enable them to train and qualify new Volunteers in Safety Assessment. The second day [pictured above] was held to train architects and engineers in volunteer disaster recovery assistance. Promulgated by AIA-NJ President Justin A Mihalik, AIA, the two day sessions were a tremendous success.

April 1, 2016 was no fool’s day for the11 members of the AIA-NJ and AIA-NY who attended the first of the two day training sessions. Participating in the 8 hour “train the trainer” disaster assistance program were the executive members of AIA-NJ and AIA-NY. The training for both sessions was headed up by Michael Lingerfelt, FAIA from Orlando, Florida and assisted by Laurence E. Parisi, AIA Chair of the AIA-NJ Homeland Security Committee, former AIA-NJ President. Mr. Lingerfelt is an experienced trainer of the California Safety Assessment Program.

We are truly fortunate to have Michael as our trainer. This is the third training session he has headed up for AIA-NJ; in my opinion he is the most invigorating trainer on the planet. Working with Michael on these disaster assistance programs has been an enriching and rewarding experience. By providing and supporting this event, our intention is to expand the training capabilities of AIA-NJ and AIA-NY. It is a benefit to New Jersey and New York, as coastal states, to be able to conduct training sessions for volunteering architects and engineers to be certified as card carrying Safety Assessment Workers by the California Safety Assessment Program. As we have learned from the recent past, disaster may strike at any time, and preparation is necessary.

April 2nd was just as explosive as April 1st, as nearly 100 architects and engineers attended the daylong disaster assistance training session. Sponsored by AIA-NJ, the goal of this program is to train professional architects and engineers as certified volunteer assistants in rapid recovery in the event of a catastrophic disaster such as Super Storm Sandy.

These training sessions will continue to be held periodically as an ongoing effort to strengthen and increase the number our professional volunteers. To date, we have approximately 300 architects and engineers in New Jersey that have been certified by the Office of the California Emergency Management as safety workers. Following a disaster, these safety workers will be able to respond to an affected area and evaluate the safety of homes and buildings.

We truly appreciate the hands-on efforts and logistical support of Ms. Laura Slomka, AIA-NJ Executive Assistant. We also wish to thank Urs P. Gauchat Dean of the School of Architecture and the administration of NJIT for allowing us to conduct our training at their facilities for these past sessions and all of the training sessions we’ve conducted.
