WEBINAR: Innovations in Steel
Wed December 7, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
1 LU | HSW
Presented by American Institute of Steel Construction
Course Description: This program will demonstrate how recent structural steel industry innovations allow architects to easily express their design, concepts, overcome client serviceability and safety concerns, enhance their use of architecturally exposed structural steel, and help ensure a comfortable, safe and sustainable building environment for occupants.
- Understand framing systems that achieve low floor-to-floor heights and long spans for economies of construction cost and schedule, and reduced use of materials for a sustainable and safe building structure.
- Learn how, as a partner in the procurement and delivery process, steel fabricators can provide strategic ideas for cost-effective and time-saving project performance. Examples of the benefits to specific project cost and schedule due to off-side fabrication of the steel will be shown. And attendees will understand the qualities of and fabrication techniques for structural steel, structural engineering concepts, as well as architectural detailing, fire protection and coating systems for structural steel that promote the structural integrity, safety and long-term maintenance of the material and the building.
- Learn how recent structural steel innovations allow architects to easily express their design concepts to alleviate client serviceability concerns and demonstrate how the design of the steel structure will enhance occupant comfort and well-being.
- Learn how steel Wide Flange (WF) shapes and Hollow Structural Sections (HSS) are manufactured and what makes steel fully recyclable and environmentally friendly in addition to being a strong, durable, adaptable and safe building material.
