AISC unveils new logo designs for certified facilities
December 21, 2009 from American Institute of Steel Construction
(Chicago) – The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) introduces four new certification logos to promote and identify AISC certified fabrication facilities, including bridge component manufacturers and certified erectors, and AISC member companies that are quality certified by AISC. These updated logos are designed to help distinguish AISC certification and AISC membership in the marketplace.
AISC certification and AISC membership serve two distinct purposes:
- AISC Certification is both a business improvement tool and a program to indicate to specifiers, contractors, and owners that a specific facility has the experience, personnel, equipment, and knowledge to successfully complete their project. As a business improvement tool, the certification program has proven invaluable in helping fabricators and erectors improve their processes and procedures by way of implementing a quality management system and annual audits to maintain these high standards.
- AISC membership helps to support the Institute's technical and marketing initiatives that help make it easier to design in steel and that promote the use of fabricated structural steel. AISC member dues help pay for a wide variety of programs including the development of the Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, design guides, the Steel Solutions Center, AISC regional engineers, steel research, educational programs for students, faculty, and design professionals, advertising, the promotion of steel bridges, and the development of the certification standard.
The stand-alone certification logos may be used by AISC certified facilities, and the certification logos combined with the AISC member logo may be used by companies that are full or associate members of AISC and are also quality certified by AISC. For assistance in obtaining the logos, please contact Todd Alwood at [email protected] or 312.670.7527.
