Structural Engineers Association of New York
Specification Writing Advice for More Sustainable Steel Projects
Hosted by the
Sustainable Design Committee
DATE: February 1, 2023
TIME: 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm Zoom Webinar
Structural Engineers have the opportunity to include language in project specifications that will influence the selection of materials by the procurement team. When carefully researched, the specification team can identify structural steel manufactured with the lowest impact to the environment.
In this webinar, the presenter will offer the appropriate background information and benchmark criteria that can be used to determine the acceptance of suppliers and products. He will also outline the documentation that the supplier requires in order for assessment of their ability to meet said criteria.
