    2019 AISC IDEAS2: Call for Entries

    Show the great work your firm does in steel through entering the 2019 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel (IDEAS2) Awards competition! Architectural and engineering firms, structural steel companies, general contractors and owners are encouraged to enter steel-framed building projects in the competition. Conducted annually by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), this awards program recognizes excellence and innovation in the use of structural steel on building projects across the country. The award is the highest honor bestowed on building projects by the U.S. structural steel industry.

    "The IDEAS2 Awards is how we recognize the innovative and progressive ways that you use the versatility, utility and beauty of structural steel in your projects," said Charles J. Carter, SE, PE, PhD, AISC's president. "You amaze us every year and we look forward to another year of your incredible work."

    Winning projects receive their awards at the project sites during special presentations to which the project team and local dignitaries will be invited. The winning projects will also be recognized at NASCC: The Steel Conference in St. Louis, April 3-5, 2019.

    The IDEAS2 jury represents a cross-section of the structural steel design, fabrication and construction industries. Including a diverse panel helps the jury highlight steel solutions to the challenges designers and constructors face in all building types and sizes. Entries will be judged in three categories according to constructed value: Less than $15 million; $15 million to $75 million; and Greater than $75 million. There is also a category for sculptures, art installations and non-building structures.

    For the full eligibility requirements, instruction on how to enter and access to the online entry form, please visit:

    The deadline for entries is SteelDay, September 28, 2018

    Englewood Cliffs, NJ, May 3, 2018—Those Amazing Professions Inc. (TAP) announces the launch of, a website to inform young people about careers in engineering through real life examples of what engineers do and where they work. The site, particularly appropriate for middle school students who are at an age when they begin to think about careers, can be used with students in upper elementary and high school as well. The publicly available site was developed with a lead grant from The Thornton Tomasetti Foundation and with matching funds from The National Academy of Construction, the New York Building Foundation, and the Structural Engineers Association of New York.

    The site will help students understand how their classroom science, technology, engineering and math programs (STEM) are relevant to actual career options that can help change the world. Information and video links illustrate the variety of engineering disciplines and professional opportunities, examples of places to work, and ideas on how to get started, as well as some of the latest and most innovative work being done by engineers today. For teachers, the site includes resources and suggested classroom activities to engage students and challenge their imagination.

    The basis for the site is the highly touted book, Those Amazing Engineers, produced by Trilogy Publications LLC, with over 90,000 copies sold nationwide. Trilogy has donated the books and the copyright of Those Amazing Engineers to TAP. Rose Reichman, Executive Director of TAP, states “The digital version of Those Amazing Engineers builds on the success of the book and makes the content free to users and universally accessible. It also allows TAP to easily update and adapt the material in response to teacher and student feedback.”

    Those Amazing Professions Inc. (TAP) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 whose mission is to educate young people about careers in underserved professions. The engineering website is its first initiative. For more information on the website and TAP, contact Rose Reichman, or 201-816-1211/201-816-8904.

     WASHINGTON, D.C., October 3, 2017—The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “The Structural Aspect of Interior Nonstructural Cold-Formed Steel Framing” on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs. 

    The webinar will review various interior nonstructural cold-formed steel framing for code-specified and engineered applications. Often, interior applications beyond ASTM installation standards are not thoroughly addressed in project contract documents. This webinar will assist building design professionals by highlighting code and industry standard limitations and illustrating which ones do not require analysis and which ones require additional engineering to determine proper member sizes and installation. The webinar will cover several topics, including: 

    • Industry technology,
    • Wall and ceiling members: tables, bridging and limitations,
    • Chase wall framing,
    • Partial height partition support systems,
    • Structure deflection accommodations, and
    • Suspended ceiling systems. 

    The webinar will be conducted by Randy Kuss, Project Manager at ClarkDietrich Engineering Services, LLC. Randy has more than 25 years of experience in both structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing, ranging from basic interior partition installation requirements to complex architectural feature framing. His current responsibilities include engineering pricing, sales, design management, engineering design, detailing and field installation technical services for all aspects of structural and nonstructural cold-formed steel framing.  

    More information on the webinar and registration details are available at

    The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.
