AEC Intern Partnership program

BSE Structural Engineers and the City of Lenexa team had the honor of hosting the 2nd rotation for the 2023 A/E/C Intern Partnership coordinated by BHC. The morning began at Lenexa’s Thompson Barn, where the interns learned about the various stages of a project, from the initial conception and planning process, through the stages of design and construction, with a showcase on the Lenexa Justice Center project. We discussed the project’s coordination using BIM 3D modeling, as well as project challenges and the state-of-the-art features incorporated into the design and construction of this $73 million project. A tour of the Lenexa Justice Center project followed the day’s session.
