Turner Valley Gas Plant:
Educating Structural Engineers
in the Conservation of Historic Structures
April 21, 2021, 1:00-2:00 EST
The Turner Valley Gas Plant is the birthplace of Canada’s Oil and Gas industry and now a National Historic Site. The presentation will demonstrate how a field trip to the site shows students the difficulties in preserving such a site from the structural engineering perspective, especially in relation to accepted international conservation principles.
