Steel Shots: Happy SteelDay 2014!

Earlier this week, AISC hosted a “pre” SteelDay presentation and tour of Brooklyn’s 2 City Point -- a 28-story, 280,000-sq.-ft steel residential tower currently under construction. It’s the largest mixed-use development in the city and will be the tallest Girder-Slab project in the world. Nearly 100 industry professionals and students attended the event and discovered how the innovative steel framing system’s large open bays and precast hollow core structure provided architectural flexibility, low cost and a quick construction schedule.

Today marks the structural steel industry’s sixth annual SteelDay! And dozens of events are taking place throughout the country to celebrate. Since its inception, SteelDay has drawn in tens of thousands of design and construction professionals and students who take the day to see the industry at work by visiting structural steel facilities and job sites, attending presentations and joining networking events.
