Utilizing Cold-Formed Steel Framing in Mid-Rise Construction

Utilizing Cold-Formed Steel Framing in Mid-Rise Construction

CDBS 013 is a face-to-face presentation that utilizes a PowerPoint presentation targeted to architects, engineers, developers and builders to educate them on the advantages of utilizing cold-formed steel framing in the construction of mid-rise structures. We will review the incorporation and the preferred method of construction when utilizing structural cold-formed steel framing in buildings.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. What structural advantages are there when using cold-formed steel framing in lieu of conventional framing systems
  2. What environmental benefits are there when using cold-formed steel in mid-rise construction
  3. How are mechanical systems such as HVAC, electrical and plumbing incorporated into the design of mid-rise structures when using cold-formed steel framing
  4. What are the advantages to the owner/designer/contractor team when cold-formed steel framing is used in mid-rise construction
