Steel Erection – Engineering and Execution
3-Part Webinar Series
Join us to learn from the experts in charge of maintaining stability of partially built steel structures.
We'll start by examining the erector's world, from business and contract decisions to getting the job done efficiently and safely.
The second and third sessions will build your knowledge of erection engineering practice for both low-rise and high-rise buildings, respectively.
If you're directly involved in the planning and erection process or work to design constructable steel buildings, this webinar series is a must!

Structural steel erection consists of assembling the building’s frame on site safely and economically. This session will address how steel erection gets done, from securing the work to executing it. Topics include:
- Erectors’ contractual relationships
- AISC Code of Standard Practice
- Erection schematic
- Selling an erection project
- Prefabrication coordination
- Erection pre-mobilization planning
- Prosecuting the work
This session provides an overview of the steps taken by the Erector’s Engineer to ensure stability of each stage of construction during structural steel erection of low-rise buildings. Topics include:
- AISC Code of Standard Practice requirements for the EOR and Erector
- Design standards / design guides
- The importance of load path
- Global stability
- Element stability (i.e., stability of long-span trusses)
- Temporary bracing / shoring design
- Staged construction considerations
- Design examples
With all-steel high-rises becoming more prevalent in modern construction, the desire to build higher and faster creates increasingly common challenges for erection engineers. Pushing erection ahead of OSHA limits, tying tower cranes to slender high-rise structures, and generating and resisting wind demands on an unclad steel skeleton require engineering solutions that may not apply to a traditional tower with a concrete core. We'll explore these challenges and describe engineering approaches that can facilitate constructing these complicated and unique structures.
