The process of preparing the fabrication package for steel buildings has remained essentially unchanged for 30 years. Alternative construction methods like design-build, Integrated Project Delivery, and early fabricator involvement have shortened the delivery of steel to the job site but have not made the process more efficient.
This webinar will discuss a proof of concept for how structural engineers can change the way steel is delivered to a project. Construction schedules can be shortened by weeks, RFIs and change orders can virtually be eliminated, and the shop preferences of the fabricator can be incorporated to maximize the efficiency of the entire delivery system. Case studies will be presented to support this new process.
