Mentors and Reviewers

An exciting innovation in the damaged concrete buildings database project was the interaction of mentors and reviewers from local Bay Area firms as well as several EERI members throughout the world. Mentors met with the interns and discussed particular buildings with them, as well as various reconnaissance observations more generally. In addition, mentors reviewed the individual building reports prepared by the interns. The opportunity for interaction with so many practicing engineers was given by the student interns as one of the highlights of the summer. A list of the mentors and reviewers is below.
