Steel Bridge Group Launches Enhanced Website
August 13, 2009 from American Institute of Steel Construction
New Site Offers Deep Resources for Bridge Designers
(Chicago, IL) – The National Steel Bridge Alliance (NSBA) is pleased to announce the launch of its new and improved web site – www.steelbridges.org. The new site provides enhanced resources essential to steel bridge construction. New material includes multimedia presentations, case studies, white papers and other technical resources designed for American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, as well as staff from the Federal Highway Administration and state Departments of Transportation, and bridge consultants, erectors, and representatives of the coatings, fastener, and welding industries.
In addition to the site’s new technical features, the graphic design and interface present a dramatic improvement. NSBA streamlined the site’s navigation, making it more intuitive and user-friendly. NSBA also created a visual navigation system for the visitors to learn more about the advantages of steel bridges as they can casually browse through articles, media, and archives. The site now better leverages the vast technical resources of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
In the coming months, NSBA will be introducing new site features including content only available for its members, downloadable educational resources for bridge engineers, and additional multimedia.
