For members, join us for both seminars at $85, just the Cold-Formed Steel seminar for $50, or just the Storm Shelter Seminar for $38. Be sure to log-in for your member discount. Please choose your sessions and be sure to let us know if you'll be joining us for lunch when you register.
The schedule for the day will run:
10AM-12PM: Cold-Formed Steel (CFS) Framing Design and Applications Seminar, presented by McClure Engineering Company (2 HSW credits)
12PM-1PM: Lunch for those attending both seminars
1PM-2:30PM: Storm Shelters, IBC 2015, ICC-500: Impacts to Owners of Essential and Education Facilities, presented by KJWW
(1.5 HSW credits)
Cold-Formed Steel Program Description:
This is a 101 course related to cold-formed steel framing design. The material of construction will be explained including how the studs, joists, and other members are formed. The design applications will be discussed, including which types of occupancy and use groups lend themselves toward this type of construction method. Basic design concepts will be discussed as pertains to the architect. For example: typical spans for floor framing/roof framing and capabilities at different building/story heights will be reviewed. Pros and cons of the system will be discussed. Methods of building erection, construction phasing, and job site aspects will also be covered.
Storm Shelter Program Description:
With the release of the IBC 2015, new code provisions have drastically changed storm shelter requirements. This will affect educational facilities (Group E-50 or more occupants) and critical emergency operation centers, which include first responders, police, fire, 911 call centers, and more, in tornado-prone areas that encompass nearly 50% of the contiguous United States. This presentation will discuss in-depth the new code provisions and any exceptions, along with what parts of the country are affected. It will cover basic design requirements of ICC-rated shelters, delineating what is included in each code and how the codes are related. Requirements for architectural, structural, mechanical, and electrical disciplines will be covered. The will give design teams, owners, and contractors more information to be better prepared for the increased design time and constraints associated with the new storm shelter provisions.
