Earlier this week, AISC hosted a “pre” SteelDay presentation and tour of the McDonough District Hospital expansion project in Macomb, Ill., one of the first projects in the Midwest to be built using the Peikko Deltabeam system. Guests discovered how using the system for the three-story extension enabled the hospital to match its current floor-to-floor heights to the existing building while allowing a maximum floor-to-ceiling height. The event offered a sneak peek at the dozens of events scheduled to take place around the country on SteelDay. Photo: AISC
With only three weeks to go until SteelDay, Friday, September 19, we thought we’d get into the spirit with this month’s Steel Structure Trivia challenge. 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.)
How to Enter the Contest:
Submit your SteelDay plans by noon (CT) on Wednesday, September 3, to Tasha Weiss at email@example.com. Simply tell us who you are and what SteelDay event(s) you’re hosting or attending.
The first three people to submit their SteelDay plans will receive an MSC-branded, stainless steel back scratcher! (And check out that telescoping action! Wow!) Its five-fingered curved design reaches from 5 1/2 in. to 19 1/4 in. in length.
