Chicago’s first staggered truss project is now underway and a live webcam is capturing the construction. The Staybridge Suites Hotel, which was designed by structural engineer Structural Affiliates International in Nashville and architect Valerio Dewalt Trane in Chicago, is scheduled to open in mid-2008. The fabricator and erector is AISC Member K & K Iron Works. For more information on the project, and to view the webcam, please visit www.aisc.org/staybridge.
AISC and the Associated Steel Erectors will host a breakfast presentation on the project and conduct a hard hat tour on Friday, Feb. 8, 2008. The program is free. For more information, contact Tabitha S. Stine, P.E., LEED AP, AISC’s Great Plains Regional Engineer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 708.647.9395.
