Although engineers are highly skilled in applying technical know-how to solve complex problems and build magnificent projects, they often lack the soft skills needed to climb the corporate ladder.
“Engineer Your Own Success: 7 Key Elements to Creating an Extraordinary Engineering Career” is a seminar in which author Anthony Fasano, P.E., provides the missing link between technical and social intelligence by educating engineers on how to develop interpersonal communicative skills, build an effective network, work through challenges, and set clear career goals.

Join us for a tour of the $234M Repair and Reuse Project of Downtown’s iconic Hall of Justice. Built in 1925, the original building served as the former county jail, housing such notable arrestees as “Bugsy” Siegel, Robert Mitchum, and Charles Manson. The building has been closed since 1994 after suffering damage from the Northridge Earthquake.
The 335,000 square-foot Hall of Justice will feature seismic upgrades, 308,000 square feet of office space, new interior shear walls and drag beams, and new MEP systems that tie into the building's existing central plant. Additional renovations include adding a museum area and kitchen and removing two floors of former jail cells to create head room for office space. Preserving the historic building's original aesthetic, the project team will pin and clean all exterior granite, restore the loggia and staircases, and refurbish all elevator cabs and entrances. In addition, the project includes a 1,000-space parking structure. The Hall of Justice anticipates earning LEED Gold Certification.
Due to re-open early next year, the Hall will serve as the home of the LA Sherriff's Department and members of the LA County District Attorney's staff — both former tenants of the building.
