Courses available:

  • Addressing Project Complexity

    Project complexity and cost often grow in tandem. Both can be mitigated by the early selection and detailed engineering of the structural steel building system. This course, developed as an easy-to-read article, will give you a working knowledge of structural steel building systems and the ways to drive down the various costs of complexity, regardless of scale.

  • BIM Open Web Steel Joist Design

    This course documents the cost and performance advantages of BIM when applied to steel joist design. Successful BIM joist design process management is demonstrated and independent research is shared regarding the need for greater adoption of BIM-based steel joist and deck design.

  • Design-Build: Steel Joists and Metal Decking

    This course defines a range of project cost and performance improvements achievable by the design-build approach to steel joist and deck design in commercial steel construction. Learn the fundamentals of engineering for total-project cost control, from tonnage reduction to a related chain reaction of costs.

  • Progressive Steel Joist and Metal Decking Design

    This course takes a building owner’s perspective on the range of cost and performance improvements that are possible when using a more design-analytical and collaborative approach to steel joist and metal decking construction.

  • Optimized Steel Deck Design for Steel Building Construction

    This course reviews the range of steel deck types, their profiles and distinguishing features. Learn terms for specifying steel decking. Understand the role of the steel deck detailer, the deck detailing process and its value to a project. Identify the contributions steel deck can make to aesthetics, structural performance, and overall project cost reduction.
