Return the Civil Structure to McMaster University Campus
McMaster University's Civil Structure was generously donated by Walters Inc. in 1996. The Civil Structure not only serves as an educational tool, but has also been adopted as an important monument for the engineering student society. Since the construction of the Hatch Center, the Civil Structure has been left in Parking Lot M, and is ultimately inaccessible to students.
What is the Civil Structure and what is its importance?
The Civil Structure is designed to be used as an educational tool for Steel Design. The structure is comprised of a variety of steel shapes and sizes that are formed together to demonstrate the steel frameworks of structures. The Civil Structure was originally constructed by Professor Dwane S. Ellifritt from the University of Florida. Since it is difficult to take large class sizes on site visits, the Civil Structure serves as an optimal substitute by allowing students to visualize steel connects in full scale.
