Friday, November 15, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EST
Today builders are feeling the impact of a tightening labor market.
One of the ways architects can assist contractors to continue to succeed - even as securing additional skilled labor becomes more difficult - is to include prefabricated (built off-site) architectural products in their designs.
Utilizing prefabricated architectural products allows the contractor to make greater use of lower skilled workers in the construction of the project.
Prefabricated architectural products also reduce project waste and shorten product installation time.

- Compare and contrast the railing system materials used for posts, top rails, and infill.
- Describe common challenges with locally fabricated metal rail systems.
- Evaluate how stainless steel railing systems meet health, safety, and welfare requirements.
