2016 Moolin Seminar

CESTiCC researchers Robert Perkins and Larry Bennett are organizing the 2016 Moolin Seminar in Anchorage, Alaska on Monday, October 31. The seminar is entitled Environmentally Sustainable Construction Practices in Cold Regions. The report from Drs. Perkins and Bennett's completed CESTiCC project, Guidelines for Sustainable Construction in Alaska Tips, suggestions, and ideas for increasing the net benefit of Alaskan construction projects, will be utilized during the event. It will feature 12 additional presentations by experts in construction from government and industry. 

The Moolin Endowment

The family of the late Frank Moolin, chief construction engineer on the Trans Alaska Pipeline project, endowed a series of seminars about project management in Alaska. The first seminar, held in 2013, dealt with the management of mega-projects, while the second, in 2015, treated alternative methods for delivering projects other than traditional low-bid contracting. This third seminar will discuss practical methods contractors operating in cold regions can use to address the challenges of environmental responsibility. Sponsors include Associated General Contractors of Alaska, Institute of Traffic Engineers Alaska, Alaska Tribal Technical Assistance Program, American Society of Civil Engineers Alaska Section and Center for Environmentally Sustainable Transportation in Cold Climates.
