On November 8th and 9th, Associate Director Rupa Garai presented at the Indian Association of Structural Engineering's (IAStructE) International Seminar in New Delhi. The conference, titled "Performance Based Design of Buildings & Bridges for Enhanced Seismic Resilience," addressed how the utilization of performance based design (PBD) can create more resilient structures.

In addition to serving as a session chair, Garai gave four lectures that focused on different PBD applications, covering topics such as building codes for vibration control, tall building guidelines, and reinforced concrete shear wall structures.

For over 15 years, Garai has collaborated as a structural engineer on many SOM-designed projects, including Poly International Plaza, the Superior Court of California in San Diego, Al Hamra Tower, and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport – Terminal 2.
