Early constructability and prefabrication efforts in cold-formed steel framing can significantly impact the financial performance and cost control measures of a project as collaboration increases between owner, design professional, contractor, and manufacturer.
Super Stud Building Products, Inc., the multi-regional cold-formed metal framing members and accessories manufacturer, is proud to announce that Don Allen, P.E., LEED AP, Director of Engineering, will hosting a Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) webinar on cold-formed steel floor systems for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors.
Don Allen, P.E., LEED AP, Director of Engineering for Super Stud Building Products, will be presenting at this years’ Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) Expo in Chicago, Illinois. The Expo, which will be held June 4-6, 2019, is the only one of its kind dedicated to the cold-formed steel framing industry and designed for architects, specifiers, builders and engineers. CFSEI’s education program includes a primary focus in cold-formed steel framing with an exposition featuring state-of-the-art innovations, technologies and principles in cold-formed steel framing.
FORT WORTH, TXApril 15, 2018 – Don Allen, P.E., Director of Engineering at Super Stud Building Products, Inc., will be representing the multi-regional steel framing and accessories manufacturer at this year’s American Society of Civil Engineers ( ASCE) Structural Engineering Institute’s annual conference. Allen will be addressing Thermal Bridging in a technical session Friday, April 20th from 9:30 – 10:30am. Allen will cover the implications, benefits, challenges, and code compliance ramifications of cold-formed steel thermal design applications as well as highlighting industry trends. This session will benefit architects, engineers, specifiers, material suppliers, code consultants, owners, owner’s representatives, construction managers, students and young professionals.
Up until recently, Manufacturing and Architecture have coexisted for many years as singularly important facets of the building process. Now, in the advent of building information modeling (BIM) and other smart technologies, the need for the architect and building product manufacturer to coordinate early in the design process is critical in achieving a project’s design intent. This coordination also helps keep the project within budget and on schedule. The critical intersection between design intent and fabrication has led to a growth in the need for accurate specifications, precision expertise in building material engineering, and partnerships that bring a design vision to life.
