The purpose of this course is to educate architects, structural engineers, and contractors in the various techniques used to reduce the cost and time to construct a pre-engineered metal building. Attendees will learn how to set up a project that maximizes the use of lower priced framing alternatives and minimizes the use of more costly ones.
This course discusses framing choices, the incorporation of masonry, mezzanine layouts, bracing alternatives, how to reduce the cost of purlins and girts, how to reduce foundation sizes and insights on cranes in metal buildings. Also included are tips on the expansion of existing structures and quality control. A wide variety of other industry topics will be discussed. Individuals in any trade who regularly deal with metal building systems will find this information beneficial.
Revealed are the secrets used by industry insiders to execute a pre-engineered metal building project that is completed on time and within budget. The course also reveals the common pitfalls that many well meaning professionals unknowingly fall prey to when working with this type of structure.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
