Steel—Doing It Right® is a two-day seminar aimed at owners, project managers, estimators, foremen, superintendents, code officials and architects. Formulated by experts from the Steel Framing Alliance, an organization at the forefront of the latest technological advances for building with cold-formed steel, and AWCI and its member experts, the seminar is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the construction methods and contractors’ issues including structural, load-bearing wall assemblies; interior systems; roof and floor assemblies; estimating; quality control and much more.
As one attendee put it: “This seminar will keep the attorneys away and provide information to increase the contractor’s bottom line.”
The seminar instructors are: Pat Boyd, P.E. owner of J. Patrick Boyd Consulting Engineers specializing in design calculations and engineered drawings for the use of cold-formed steel framing in commercial applications and Don Allen, P.E, LEED A.P., is an internationally known expert on cold-formed steel (CFS) structural design.
Both instructors are experts in the field of CFS design and construction and bring a wealth of experience and insight to the seminar.
Seminar content is based on industry accepted standards and best practices.

“After 30 years of specifying and drawing details for cold-formed steel projects, it was gratifying to attend the Steel—Doing It Right® seminar. The instructors were knowledgeable and presented a comprehensive program that will assist me in updating our office knowledge base. I definitely plan to send key staff to the next seminar.”
