As a leader in the structural steel industry, CSC is proud to announce our in-house speakers, and we can’t wait to be back in person with our fellow industry professionals!

Detailing and Coordinating Steel Deck

Speaker: Kristen Blank
Wednesday, Mar 23: 1:45 PM – 2:45 PM
Colorado Convention Center
Published Room: 703

Detailing metal deck is a very specialized process. Typically only steel deck detailers are intimately familiar with the SDI requirements and special conditions required to coordinate and provide an error-free project with no field problems. The designs are not always clear and many times the gray areas lead to delays, RFIs, and field issues. We will explain the basics of metal deck placement and coordination and discuss the flow of information and help identify the common pitfalls associated with steel deck.

Detailing for Steel Joists and Joists Girders

Speaker: Mirabel Fernandez
Thursday, Mar 24: 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM
Colorado Convention Center
Published Room: 703

Presenting the best practices for detailing steel joist and joist girders, highlighing practical guidelines for optimizing the detailing process, reducing RFIs and maximizing coordination efforts, thus supporting the ultimate goal of a successful project. As detailing joists and joist girders is very specialized, structural detailers are
often not familiar with the SJI code, coordination responsibility is unclear and even more so with the increase of using detailers unfamiliar with standard industry practice. We’ll provide the basics of joist placement plans and coordination requirements and help promote harmony between structural and joist erection drawings.

Codes, standards and Steel Deck Institute commentary provide guidance for traditional design and construction, but unique applications are not uncommon. This presentation clarifies the intent of the standards, offers solutions to unique problems,  and answers questions often asked of suppliers.

Lateral Load-Resisting Frames Using Steel Joist and Joist Girders

Speaker: Tim Holtermann
Thursday, Mar 24: 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Colorado Convention Center
Published Room: 205

This seminar will highlight key points when using open web steel joists and joist girders in lateral load resisting systems for wind and seismic loads. The session addresses commonly used diaphragms, frames, and bracing systems as well as commonly used details and effective ways to communicate the design requirements to the joist manufacturer. SJI Technical Digest 11 is the reference for this presentation.
