Posted by Tasha Weiss on March 12, 2013 at 4:27 PM.

For the second consecutive year, NASCC: The Steel Conference provides a glimpse into the future of technology in steel construction with the Technology in Steel Construction Conference (TSCC). This special track features nine informative sessions that focus on advanced technology use throughout the steel construction industry, from various topics on building information modeling (BIM) to interoperability.


TSCC sessions are part of the more than 100 top-notch educational sessions being offered at The Steel Conference in St. Louis, April 17-19 at America’s Center Convention Complex. Admittance to all TSCC sessions is included with conference registration.
