Happy Pi Day! GreenVest celebrated yet another Pi Day with pizza pie for lunch, followed by decadent dessert pies. It was a wonderful way to catch up with colleagues, enjoy a presentation about Construction Oversight and Management, and pay special attention to the circles we overlook every day.
On March 14, 1988, Larry Shaw, a physicist at the San Francisco Exploratorium, coordinated a circular march and pie eating extravaganza. Chosen for its resemblance to the first three digits of Pi, 3/14 has since become international Pi Day, and a reason for math and sweets-themed parties around the world. Pi (3.1415926…) is the mathematical constant of a circle’s circumference divided by its diameter, which is essential to many formulas in mathematics and physics. Here at GreenVest, we use it often – for example, to get the diameter of a tree or pipe by measuring its circumference.
Max Breslin, a GreenVest Project Manager, started his presentation with a joke that the best Pi Day must have been the one on March 14, 1592. After that, he taught the GV staff about many aspects of Construction Oversight and Management and how we implement them on GV projects. A big thank you to everyone who participated in this fun and delicious celebration! We are counting down the days until March 14, 2024, for more pi(e)!
