2017 CSI Knoxville Product Show
Tue, Mar 14 2017

Josh Brock [General Shale] and John Hockensmith [MHM] put together a first class product show this year at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville. The show always draws a wonderful mixture of old friends and new ones from the design and construction industry. The sold out show featured new products and services. Registrants were greeted by the Associated Construction Women (ACW) who was gracious to volunteer their services. The new component director for AIA, Dale Powers, was manning the AIA booth to greet visitors also. Knox County Codes department was well represented and was able to talk with lots of designers and builders. The food was fantastic. [we didn't know that shrimp grew that large!!] Thank you for all the volunteer efforts and see you again next year.


CSI Summer Cookout & Fireworks
Sat, Jul 02 2016

 The CSI members and many friends and family gathered together at the home of newly elected chapter president, Suzan Jordan, for the annual cookout and fireworks display.  Darson and Brandon manned the grill and produced piles of hamburgers, turkey burgers and hotdogs.  Everyone brought delicious nibbles and side dishes to share with all.  Nancy brought homemade orange sherbert which hit the spot on a hot summer day.  Jim Odle brought his new friend from Nigeria who has just made Knoxville their home.  The Crows brought their adorable grandaughter and she loved the lake, as did Jim Odle!  The evening is always climaxed by the fireworks that Suzan's neighbors the Kirk's provide for the neighborhood.  Watch the attached video to see a drone's view of the festivities.  Thank you very much to Suzan and her family for opening their home to the Knoxville CSI.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94UNJuB-Kh8


Stacy Colbaugh, Editor Wins Region Publication Award
Tue, May 10 2016

Stacy Colbaugh, CSI, CDT has won the 2016 Region Continuing Publication Award for the excellent Knoxville Chapter publication THE SPECK.  Stacy was not able to be present at the awards ceremony at the Region Conference in Pensacola, Florida so she was presented the award today by President Gary Bergeron at the May chapter luncheon.  Stacy has consistently been responsibile for award winning publications since she took over the chair of the Publication committee since "forever".  Stacy modestly accepted the award and said that the publication can only be good if the content is good and she depends upon each member of the chapter to send her articles that can be shared with the design and construction community.  Thank you Stacy for your hard work to help all of us stay informed about upcoming chapter events and great technical information.

Several members of the CSI Knoxville student chapter went on a great site visit to the University of Tennessee Knoxville-Oak Ridge National Laboratory (UTK-ORNL) Joint Institute for Advanced Materials (JIAM) building on the located on the former Cherokee Farms site on Alcoa Highway.

Some of the features of the building include pre-patina copper skin panels, fire rated glass panels in the atrium floor, and conference rooms with automated video cameras and microphones to follow speakers and participants in the conference. JIAM operates with a multidisciplinary team of scientists from UT and ORNL, and conducts research at the forefront of modern materials science.
