With just under a month to go until SteelDay, September 28, we thought we’d get into the spirit with this month’s Steel Structure Trivia challenge. Hanging from a steel building facing the American Institute of Architects headquarters in Washington, D.C., just two blocks from the White House, this sign proclaims the upcoming fourth annual SteelDay, the structural steel industry’s largest educational and networking event, celebrated nationwide. Your challenge is to tell us what your plans are for SteelDay! Haven’t signed up for an event yet? You can find one near you at www.SteelDay.org/Events.
Congratulations and thank you to Brad Fletcher with Atlas Tube/JMC Steel Group in Chicago for supplying his SteelDay plans. Atlas Tube, a division of JMC Steel Group and an AISC member, is hosting a SteelDay event (click here for more info) at JMC Steel Group’s headquarters in downtown Chicago. Here is Brad’s event description:
Have you visited the John Hancock? Listened to music at Millennium Park’s Pritzker Pavilion? Flown into O’Hare Airport? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, you’ve witnessed the aesthetic possibilities of hollow structural sections (HSS). Chicago laid the foundation for high-tech architecture and the use of HSS in architecturally exposed structural steel. Now, we’re proud to say structural steel is renowned as the material of choice for the future of engineering. What better way to celebrate Chicago and HSS than with an Atlas Tube SteelDay event?
Atlas Tube, the leading producer of HSS in North America, is celebrating SteelDay with an educational and networking event hosted at JMC Steel Group’s headquarters in downtown Chicago. Our SteelDay event features an HSS presentation given by structural engineer and HSS expert, Brad Fletcher. Attendees can also look forward to free lunch and the opportunity to meet and mingle with architects, engineering students and other industry peers.
Join us on September 28, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a presentation on the challenges and benefits of designing and building with HSS. If you can’t attend the event, don’t worry! We’ll be live tweeting throughout the day, so follow us @AtlasTube and @JMCSteelGroup.
