Vibrant Technology Solutions Company sponsors the 16th ASEP International Convention held last May 23-25 at the Grand Ballroom of Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati City, with this year’s theme “Prolonging the Life of Structures”. It was organized by the Association of Structural Engineers in the Philippines, Inc.
The convention had different sessions per day; for the first day they tackled issues about “Extreme Loads and Environment”, “Structural Health Monitoring and Assessment”, and “Restoration and Rehabilitation of Structures”. The subject matter for the second day was “Retrofitting and Strengthening of Structures”; while on the last day of the convention they had special lectures about “Performance-Based Design”.
According to ASEP their theme this year is very timely seeing that countries all over the world, including the Philippines, have been experiencing natural disasters due to extreme events like major earthquakes, bizarre strong winds from tropical cyclones and hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, etc.
Meanwhile, a part of the convention was also a two-day exhibit; booths were mounted for the benefit of the event sponsors along with VTS such as ACS Manufacturing Corporation, Alphatec Chemicals Corporation, Bridgestone Engineered Products of Asia Sdn. Shd., CE Foundation, Computers & Structures, Inc., Concrete Solutions, Freyssinet International Manila, Inc., Hilti Philippines, and Pacific Paint (BOYSEN) Philippines.
The whole two-day exhibit was a success for the company because most of the guests who registered at the booth were in fact interested about Tekla Solutions, some requested for a short demo, some inquired about the trainings and seminars, and some even asked for the value of the solution. There were about 180 Structural Engineers all over the Philippines who attended the said event.
“Na-i-intriga nga ako sa BIM na iyan e…BIM na daw kasi ang uso ngayon…” – Mr. Antonio Panelo, Jr., President and General Manager of A.C. Panelo, Jr. & Associates Inc. (I’m intrigued of how BIM works because I heard that BIM is what’s popular right now…)
With our modern world today, BIM will even get more popular as it slowly revolutionizes the AEC industry. Definitely, Vibrant Technology Solutions Company will be the channel, as Tekla Structures BIM Solution modernizes the AEC industry here in the Philippines.
