Super Stud Building Products and affiliate companies continue to support construction across the country with our cold-formed steel framing product manufacturing as well as design-assist support and specialty engineering on essential construction projects. In responding to the needs of architects and specifiers safely during this time, we have decided to make two of our most popular AIA Sessions into live webinars free of charge for attendees for the month of April. We encourage you to sign-up for one, or both, of our AIA continuing education programs worth 1 LU each guided by Don Allen, PE, LEED AP, and Sal Forgione, Associate AIA.
Information about the two programs are listed below:
