Date: 27 June 2024

Location: Online

Metal building systems (MBS), also known as pre-engineered buildings, are used in most new low-rise nonresidential buildings in the U.S. These versatile structures, which are designed and produced by their manufacturers, can be found in all kinds of buildings – from factories to churches. Cost-effectiveness, speed of construction, and many other benefits of MBS explain their popularity.

Still, MBS remain a mystery to many specifying engineers, because reliable and unbiased information about them is hard to find. The seminar fills the knowledge void. The instructor explains how these deceptively simple structures work and how to properly specify them without falling into the many traps awaiting the unwary. The seminar covers every aspect of MBS, from foundation design to metal roofing.

The seminar provides answers to many common questions, such as a selection of the proper lateral-drift and vertical deflection limits, purlin bracing, and how the foundations for MBS are different from those for other buildings. The instructor explains a rather arcane topic of the design of light-gage metal framing in simple terms and explores typical challenges facing the specifying engineers. The seminar concludes with tips on avoiding construction problems with MBS.

The participants will learn that the suppliers of MBS are not the same and will know how to differentiate between reputable manufacturers and others.
