NEW YORK – Last week saw the return of the sold-out CTBUH New York Young Professionals Committee (YPC) Summer Social, this year hosted by BuroHappold Engineering. The event took place in their New York offices at 100 Broadway and included an overview of their most recent undertakings, along with a chance for guests to meet the architects and engineers behind each project.

The purpose of these social events is for CTBUH members and their guests to gain a greater understanding of the most forward-thinking projects within New York City today, and to meet the innovative thinkers helping to shape its future. The committee also encourages its members to invite colleagues who may be interested in joining the CTBUH community and expanding their network within the tall building industry.

BuroHappold is an interconnected community of engineering consultants and specialists focused on cutting-edge ideas and strident creativity. Previous projects from the consultancy have ranged from neighborhood cycle stations to designing and building entire cities. With their global network, they bring together a community of over 1,800 experts, all striving to ensure each project creates a positive impact that lasts long into the future.

The offices of BuroHappold boast a stunning roof deck, which served as the location for a welcome buffet and drinks. Guests enjoyed a wonderful view of the southern tip of Manhattan and New Jersey while networking with other CTBUH members and BuroHappold employees. New York YPC Co-Chair Ilkay Can-Standard, Founder, GenX Consultants, spoke a few words about the progress the chapter is making and encouraged attendees to become CTBUH members to support the group’s initiatives. As the sun set, guests began to take their seats for a presentation by the company on a few of their latest projects, followed by a Q&A with architects and designers.

After the presentation, guests once again took advantage of the fantastic view from the BuroHappold offices. The hosts were gracious enough to allow the lively conversation, networking, and drinks to continue until after dark.
