SFA To Meet Steel Framing Training Request For Louisiana Building Officials
Following an overview of cold-formed steel presented this winter to the Building Officials Association of Louisiana (BOAL), the Steel Framing Alliance (SFA) will provide an expanded training session at the request of the association during their quarterly training meeting scheduled for May 15th. The SFA joins the Louisiana Municipal Association in co-sponsoring this five-hour session, which is recommended for building code officials, inspectors and plan review personnel, as well as architects, engineers and builders.

Beginning with an introduction to steel framing, “Design and Inspection of Cold-Formed Steel Structures” will cover the manufacturing process, steel framing members, tools and fasteners, construction methods and field inspections. Other topics featured in this comprehensive 4 ½-hour training will include codes and standards, specifications, the Universal Designator system for identification, corrosion protection, and floor, foundation, wall and roof systems, and more.

The training will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. immediately following BOAL’s quarterly board meeting at the Council Chamber of Eastbank, 1221 Elmwood Park Blvd., Harahan, La. Box lunches will be provided by the SFA. Pre-registration is required and will not be available at the door.

Overnight hotel accommodates are available at Sleep Inn & Suites in Metarie, La., at $79 per night when referencing BOAL.
