Steel Building Systems: A Flexible & Cost-Effective Construction Solution

Topics: Sustainability/Design

Length: 1 hour | What's included: Video, Quiz, Certificate of Completion


During this session you will learn about the use of Steel Building Systems (SBS) as part of building construction project solutions. The system will be described in detail to give the audience a better understanding of the application, engineering, energy assessment, and fabrication/construction considerations that go into delivery of a good SBS as part of a project solution. Several case studies are presented to give real world examples so that best practices may be extracted and used by the audience in their own projects. Specific topics covered include:

  • Typical building geometries
  • The common structural components of an SBS and when/where bracing is required, as well as alternatives to bracing
  • Typical building envelopes used with SBS, including some comments on energy efficiency
  • Quality control and inspections of SBS
  • Niche situations: mezzanines and crane supporting structures

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the sessions, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the meaning of SBS and differentiate it from alternative industry terms like pre-engineering building. Recall the rationale behind the term "SBS".
  • Explain the types of building geometries and architectural styles that are compatible with an SBS approach.

  • Demonstrate how architects can access information related to SBS. Utilize various sources and platforms where architects can gather information on SBS solutions effectively
