Architects, engineers, contractors, students, and any other interested parties will have the opportunity to visit, tour, and interact with Daigle Brothers, Inc. in Tomahawk, as they host a SteelDay 2010 event on Sept. 24.
SteelDay 2010, hosted by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), is the second annual national event dedicated to providing accessibility to the latest happenings in the structural steel industry. SteelDay events such as facility tours, educational seminars, and jobsite visits are scheduled across the U.S. to showcase how the structural steel industry contributes to build America. Last year’s SteelDay events were held at more than 170 different locations all over the country and more than nine out of 10 hosts said they planned to participate again in 2010.
“SteelDay gives you an appreciation for what goes into your design – and [the steel industry’s] efforts to recycle and be environmentally friendly,” commented Rick Miles, P.E., a SteelDay 2009 attendee and senior engineer at Sparks Engineering, Inc, in Round Rock, Texas.
Daigle Brothers, Inc. will be hosting an exclusive tour and steel construction process presentation, featuring guest speakers, at the facility at 727 Southgate Drive in Tomahawk. The event is free of charge and two sessions will be held. The morning session will run from 8-11 a.m. and the afternoon session will run from 1-4p.m. Coffee and donuts will be served during the morning session and juice and appetizers will be served during the afternoon session.
Guest speakers and Daigle Brothers employees will introduce attendees to the steel construction business step by step. Guests will take an exclusive tour of the facilities focusing on the detailing and fabrication process from start to finish. As concerns over the economy linger, building professionals want to reduce their risk and control their costs more than ever. Increasingly they also need to be sensitive to the environmental impacts of their projects. This event will show that building with structural steel is a very effective strategy toward meeting these goals and ensures a successful project is delivered on time and on budget.
