Simpson Strong-Tie Trains KSP Engineers

KSP engineers and CAD operators left thoroughly intrigued on Wednesday from the seminar held by Simpson Strong-Tie, a well-known supplier for various construction fasteners and pre-fabricated building components. This day's topic, ran by Jason Oakley and Mark Macdonald, was to address a few of the anchor systems that they supply. Although learning about the various applications of anchors that Simpson supplies kept everyone in the office interested, the real show came when Mr. Oakley and Mr. Macdonald took the entire company outside for a live pull test. "This is a great learning experience for the CAD Operators and Junior Engineers", says Kayvon Shakerin, KSP's Principal, "There is really no better way to understand what you are calculating on paper than seeing the process live". The Simpson 2-man team has already requested another scheduled date in which to hold another training seminar at KSP.
