Video: IDEAS2 Award Winner Talks Choosing Steel
Posted by Tasha Weiss on September 6, 2013 at 1:30 PM.

Conducted annually by AISC, the IDEAS2 awards recognize outstanding achievements in engineering and architecture on steel-framed building projects throughout the U.S. And each year, awards for each winning project are presented to the project team members involved in the design and construction of the structural framing system. Unlike most industry award programs, however, AISC presents the awards to the team members in a ceremony that takes place at each winning project site across the country.
The team of The Corner Condominiums project in Missoula, Mont., received its IDEAS2 awards last month at the building. During the presentation, AISC’s Larry Flynn conducted a video interview with Eric Hefty of Eric Hefty & Associates, the owner, developer, architect and general contractor of the project. In the video, Hefty talks about his fondness for structural steel and his use of weathering steel cladding.
