SteelDay

Free seminars, facility tours, educational sessions and networking opportunities are among the more than 200 events planned across the United States for the second annual SteelDay, set for Sept. 24. Canada will host its first SteelDay on the same day.

Geared toward a professional audience, SteelDay is the largest educational and networking event in the structural steel industry, says the American Institute of Steel Construction, host of the event.

Events will be held in New York City, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and other cities nationwide, AISC said. Last fall, more than 7,000 architects, engineers, contractors, owners, developers, and university faculty and students attended educational presentations and toured more than 170 facilities, including mills and fabrication shops where they saw advanced technologies in action.

“It was a great opportunity for designers and others to see first-hand how the structural steel industry is building high-performance and sustainable projects,” explained Roger E. Ferch, P.E., AISC’s president.

Event Highlights

In addition to connecting with local structural steel representatives across the U.S., SteelDay attendees will learn how to use the structural steel industry’s advanced technologies and processes to reduce their risk and manage their costs while being sensitive to the environmental impacts of their projects.

Among this year’s events:

• Bridge design workshop, Kansas State University, Manhattan KS.

• Bridge fabricator tour, Hirschfeld Industries, Greensboro, NC

• Testing facility tour and seminar on steel research, Lehigh University ATLSS Research Center, Bethlehem, PA

• FabSuite, a Webinar, focusing on fabricator production and revenue

• Presentation on “Building an Award-Winning Structure,” followed by a networking reception in the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center Plaza, sponsored by the Steel Institute of New York and Owen Steel Company

• Presentations and seminars at AISC headquarters in Chicago

More information on SteelDay 2010, including full details about each event, can be found at www.steelday.org.

SteelDay in Canada

The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction will host its first SteelDay on Sept. 24.

“The day will be an interactive and networking event for members of the design, construction and structural steel industry,” the association says. Steel fabricators, mills, service centers and others will open their facilities, job sites and offices.

Like the U.S. event, SteelDay in Canada will be geared toward architects, engineers, contractors, developers and educators. CISC is planning 56 events nationwide. Learn more at www.steelday.ca.
