Introduction to the Steel Construction Process: The Team Behind the Building
All parties involved in the steel construction process play a critical role, from the office (structural design, connection design, and erection engineering), to the plant (steel production and fabrication), to the field (erection and quality assurance). Using the AISC Code of Standard Practice as a framework, this session discusses the team of contributors who are responsible for creating a structural steel building.
