CCHRB Seminar Focuses on Iconic High Rise Buildings

The Chicago Committee on High Rise Buildings (CCHRB) Annual Scholarship Seminar will feature presentations examining the renovations of three American landmarks—including Chicago’s Willis Tower, the site of ESD’s headquarters.

As a current member of CCHRB, ESD Senior Managing Director Mehdi Jalayerian will be joining a roundtable discussion following the presentation of “Re-Imagining an American Icon – The Repositioning of Willis Tower.” He says the third session of the afternoon follows the examination of two other landmark buildings—the Tribune Tower redevelopment and work done on Lever House.

Jalayerian says, “Chicago is leading the way in the retention, repurposing, and refurbishment of these classic high rise buildings to extend their legacies well into the 21st century.”

According to Jalayerian, the CCHRB is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1969 (just two years after the formation of ESD) to support research and disseminate information for the economic design, construction, operation, and rehabilitation of high rise buildings.

Registration for September 22 event is open.

Mehdi Jalayerian freely shares his expert knowledge of high-rise and supertall buildings with industry professionals and organizations like CCHRB to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.

Contact ESD’s experts for more information on how ESD can help with building automation, technology, cybersecurity, or other engineering design requirements.
