A Question from China: US Firms Providing Structural Engineering in China?
Filed under: Design — Tags: — nedpelger

Dear Ned,
I wanted to thank you for taking the time to organize your blog.  I have very much enjoyed the posts.

If you have a moment, I am currently trying to do research on the activities of American firms in China, particularly relating to structural engineering consulting done (mostly in the design phase) by U.S. firms for Chinese companies in first and in second tier Chinese cities.  There is a fair amount of information on U.S. firms working on major projects (such as the Olympic bids), but I can find very little about lesser projects.  This may be because they do not exist.  Anyway, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the matter, or ideas for people I could talk to or places I could go to for more research on the matter.

Anyway, I am sure you have better things to do than answer such a random request, but I thought I would try.   If you have managed to read all the way through this email then I thank you just for that!

Kind regards,

Sieren

I’m drawing a big old blank for this question. Generally, I always have an answer, even if it’s wrong, but not this time. Can you help Sieren? Please just post a comment or send me an email if you have any thoughts on this topic. I’ll forward to Sieren.

I’m including a photo of the 2008 Olympic Wrestling building in Bejing because it’s a great looking project and, hey, it’s in China.
