DESIGN SMARTER WITH STRUCTURAL STEEL:
SUSTAINABILITY + MULTIFAMILY, HOTEL AND STUDENT HOUSING
AIA Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA 90010
Designers constantly face the challenges of providing maximum usable area, versatility in design, and creating high-quality buildings with sustainable materials in the multifamily, hotel and student housing marketplace. Join AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) to uncover how structural steel contributes to a sustainable environment, and find economical and innovative solutions in response to these challenges. Structural steel has long been recognized as a high strength, precise framing material with a fast speed of erection. Learn effective solutions for designing within the limitations of building area and height in tight design and construction schedules.
The course discusses the material requirements of major sustainability standards (ASHRAE 189.1), codes (IgCC), and rating systems (LEED 2009 & LEED v4, Living Building Challenge, Green Globes), and how the use of structural steel addresses these requirements.
Structural steel framing systems maximize space for occupant comfort, create versatile buildings for ease of design, and enhance the quality of construction to provide safe and healthy buildings. This program provides an overview of structural steel framing systems in mid-rise and high-rise projects and includes case studies which support efficient and economical methods of construction.
