Video: Building an Award-Winning Steel Structure

lee-hall-video.jpgA new educational video by the Department of Construction Science and Management at Clemson University shows the story behind the creation of a steel structure, from idea to reality. 


The 30-minute video focuses on the structural design of Lee Hall III, a 55,000-sq.-ft LEED-certified educational building on the campus of Clemson University in Clemson, S.C. The project is also a Merit Award winner in this year’s AISC IDEAS2 Awards program (you can read the article in our May 2013 issue for photos and a detailed description of the award-winning project).


The story begins with the building design and continues through the project engineering, building information modeling and shop drawing development. It then transitions to the life cycle of steel from the recycling of scrap to the production, fabrication and erection of the steel at the building site.


The video is available as a free download in MP4 format at as part of AISC’s Teaching Aids, which assist universities in preparing students to become professionals knowledgeable in the use of structural steel. Click on any of the three links on the page (under “Disciplines”) to access the video.
