Steel Shots: Happy SteelDay!

Last night, AISC hosted a SteelDay “Eve” event in New York City for guests to learn how steel is transforming the 425 Park Avenue skyscraper in Manhattan. Owen Steel Company, Inc. (an AISC member and certified fabricator) is the steel fabricator for the project. 

Happy SteelDay! Today is the ninth annual national celebration of the U.S. structural steel industry. Hosted by AISC and its members and partners, SteelDay offers the opportunity for AEC professionals, students and others to gain insight into the work, experience and accomplishments of the U.S. structural steel industry at free events occurring all over the country, including facility open houses, project site tours and webinars.

As part of the celebration, AISC is offering a SteelDay special on the new 15th edition of the AISC Steel Construction Manual. If you are in the U.S. and purchase a copy of the Manual on SteelDay, you will receive a free copy of the 2nd edition of the AISC Seismic Design Manual and free shipping for both manuals (a savings of over $200). The offer is available starting today through 5 p.m. ET on Monday, September 18 at
