Combining Design & Fabrication: Technical Lecture Series

by Paul.

On 17.10.18, David Knight of Cake Industries will be speaking about ‘the transformative process of integrating design, structural engineering and fabrication via digital workflows’ as part of the technical lecture series at The Institute of Structural Engineers. David is a chartered structural engineer who has worked on some amazing projects around the world, and also a few closer to home which you might recognise from our own portfolio! The lecture will use current examples of designs under construction, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for a guest appearance from a certain staircase…

The event is free to attend, or you can watch the live stream free online – it promises to be an interesting evening. For more info and to book a place, head over to the Institute of Structural Engineers website here.


Check out some projects we’ve collaborated on with Cake here and here.
