Stellar Line Up of Educational Sessions at CFSEI Conference

The Omni Hotel, Atlanta, Georgia is the setting for the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute’s Conference and Annual meeting, May 26 and 27, 2010.  Conference organizers have assembled a stellar group of educational sessions totaling 16 hours of continuing education for architects and engineers. 

In addition to the professional development hours offered for engineers the programs are registered with the American Institute of Architects, Continuing Education System and provide Learning Units in both the Health, Safety and Welfare and Sustainable Design categories. As one architect put it – “this is a great venue to learn more about cold-formed steel framing and fulfill some of my licensure requirements - all for a great price.”

Some of the education on tap:

BIM Revolution presented by Arol Wolford of Reed Construction Data.  Wolford was a Board Member and Investor in the original Revit Corporation that created the term BIM “Building Information Model”. He later partnered (through Tectonic Corporation) with Autodesk after they acquired Revit. Revit has become construction’s leading BIM tool with over 400,000 worldwide software users;

Re-engineering Buildings for GREEN takes a look at how to incorporate the latest technologies when dealing with existing buildings, saving the environment and the owners’ bottom line during construction and operation;

Development of a Major Natural Hazards Research Facility delivered by the Institute for Building and Home Safety covers the significant investment by the insurance industry in a new facility to find better ways to make buildings more resistant to high winds, hail and wildfire ember attacks;

Marketing in Tough Times will give you the edge for surviving in this down market;

Other programs will cover  everything from how to dodge distortional buckling, mid-rise design, blast and progressive collapse, design resources, trusses and roof systems and field observation and repair.

Don’t miss this opportunity to network with some of the cold-formed steel industry’s most seasoned veterans.  For more information and registration visit, http://www.cfsei.org/hottopics_1.htm
