Lee Hall III – A Steel Structure from Idea to Reality

Video created by The Department of Construction Science and Management, Clemson University

This is the story of the creation of a steel building. The story focuses on the structural design of Lee Hall, a 55,000 sq. ft. LEED certified educational building on the campus of Clemson University. It begins with the building design and continues through project engineering, building modeling, and shop drawing development. It then transitions to the life cycle of steel from the recycling of scrap to the production, fabrication and erection of the steel at the building site.
