O’Donnell & Naccarato Commits to the SE 2050 Challenge

O’Donnell & Naccarato is proud to announce that we have joined the Structural Engineers 2050 Commitment Program. This comprehensive program has been designed to ensure substantive embodied carbon reductions in the design and construction of structural systems by the collective structural engineering profession. Ultimately, the fundamental goal is that “All structural engineers shall understand, reduce and ultimately eliminate embodied carbon in their projects by 2050.”

O&N’s commitment to this initiative begins with our Embodied Carbon Action Plan (ECAP) 2021, year one, which focuses on educating our staff, initiating our internal documentation process, determining potential reduction strategies, and bringing awareness to members of the A/E/C community that we interface with on a regular basis. Please see the link below to read the entire O&N Embodied Carbon Action Plan.

O’Donnell & Naccarato Mourns The Loss of Barton Partners Principal Matthew J. Koenig, AIA

O’Donnell and Naccarato has lost a longtime client and great friend, Matthew J. Koenig, AIA, on Monday, July 12, 2021. Matt, a principal at Barton Partners Architects, was a talented architect who provided exemplary service to his many clients during his 30+ year career. Along the way, Matt made many friends at other design and construction firms with whom he collaborated. Matt was affable and an all-around great guy, and an avid golfer who co-chaired AIA Philadelphia’s annual golf tournament with me for more than 20 years. He was also a proud and active member of the Carpenters’ Company of the City and County of Philadelphia. Matt leaves behind his devoted wife Maria and their 2 children, Nikole & Jakob. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers during these most difficult days.

O&N Principal, Brian Rawlings (PE, SECB) currently serves as the Board Secretary. Melissa Raffel, Affiliate Director of ACE Greater Philadelphia, nominated O&N for this award. Here is an excerpt from the nomination:

“When safety concerns around the global pandemic prompted us to cancel our largest fundraiser, the Annual Scholarship Breakfast, postpone the Golf Outing until the Fall of 2021, and delay the increasingly well attended Giant Jenga event until February 2022, Rawlings and his colleagues from O&N stepped up and became invaluable advocates. He and ACE’s Development Committee campaigned to raise $70,000 for ACE Greater Philadelphia to facilitate continued programming to high school students and, for the 20th year in a row, provide impactful scholarships to graduating seniors.”

O&N continues to expand our partnership with ACE Mentor Programs in both Indiana and New Jersey.

O’Donnell & Naccarato Writes Facade Inspection Article in Engineering Journal

A comprehensive technical facade inspection article, penned by O&N Restoration leadership staff, was published in the January/February 2021 issue of ICRI’s (International Concrete Repair Institute) Concrete Repair Bulletin.

In the facade inspection article “Facade Inspections and Ordinances,” Director of Restoration Jason Coleman, PE, CDT, and Project Executive Matthew Mowrer, PE, document the reasons for and methods of facade inspections. The article also discusses the challenges faced by owners, developers, and property managers to maintain their buildings and comply with local ordinances.

“The individual or team performing the facade inspection must have an in-depth knowledge of facade construction, materials, and inspection techniques,” writes Coleman and Mowrer. “Facade deficiencies can be complex, and it’s up to those performing the inspection to understand visible signs on the surface as well as other patterns and signs that may be concealing a more severe defect or deficiency that is not visible.”

Some of the other topics discussed in the facade inspection article include structural versus nonstructural components and the importance of identifying such features.

Jason Coleman, PE, CDT, is the Director of Restoration and a Project Executive at O’Donnell & Naccarato. Jason has over 20 years of experience as a practicing engineer, with his areas of expertise including condition assessments and rehabilitation design of historical and parking structures. Matthew Mowrer, PE, serves as a Project Executive and has over 15 years of experience. Matthew’s areas of expertise include condition assessments and rehabilitation design of facades and parking structures. Both Jason and Matthew previously served as president of the ICRI Delaware Valley Chapter.
