LUNCH3 - Clear Communication for Better Details and Results

23 May 2018 11:30 AM - 1:00PM


1.5 ConEd Learning Hours

As geometries become more chaotic, so does the design, detailing, fabrication and erection process for structural steel systems, with a focus on Architecturally Exposed Structural Steel. It becomes increasingly important for architects to engage more directly with the steel fabricator to work together on an approach to detailing that works technically, economically and serves the best aesthetic results. This presentation will look at several projects to highlight best practices where the challenge levels are high. Detailing issues surrounding the incorporation of curved, cast and highly customized steel elements will also be addressed.
