This one-hour program presented by CEAS+ will discuss the benefits of working with a specialty manufacturer to design, engineer, and fabricate open air steel structures. Architects will become knowledgeable about various types of applications, design considerations, and engineering requirements. Benefits of this model include details on how powder coated structures equate to cleaner job sites that are more environmentally friendly, details on how bolt together structures install 75% faster with a superior design to typical conventional construction, and the cost savings gained by utilizing a pre-fabricated system that eliminates on-site welding, grinding, and painting.
