When: Thursday, August 17, 2017, from noon – 1 PM

Who: Chad W. Scott, co-owner and President of AMI Consulting Engineers, served eight years in the United States Marine Corps.  He was stationed at the U.S. Space Command for four years.  In addition to a degree in civil engineering, Chad received his certification as a Deep Sea Hard Hat Diver.  During his career, he has inspected and assessed thousands of structures both above water and underwater.  He has worked with both new structures and the restoration of old structures.  

What: Chad will explore the Historical Development of Duluth’s Waterfront Structures.  According to Chad, “The history of Duluth’s waterfront development is not well known by most people who work in and visit our beautiful Duluth port.  This presentation will take us through the historical development of Duluth Port and Harbor waterfront structures and explain why the development of these structures was so important to the success of Duluth’s waterfront.”  His lecture includes images of the harbor development, original maps and as-built documents, along with a small display of items from some of his previous investigations.

Where: The event will be held in the Ruth Maney Room on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota. 

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch.  Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations).  Admittance to this event is free to the public.  ARCO coffee is provided.
