Galvanize It! Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel for Parking Structures Webinar (Featuring Brian Ward, AISC)

May 29th, 2024
3:00pm ET

In today’s market where land is scarce, parking structures are becoming a necessary element to developments and campus designs. With projects today facing more and more questions and challenges requiring expert advice, we’re helping owners and designers realize that steel-framed parking structures have a clear advantage in economy and durability. Whether it’s choosing between current use of the parking structures, or adaptability for future use, specifying a building material that meets financial goals without sacrificing the entire project’s design intent is the challenge.

The Hot-Dip Galvanized Steel for Parking Structures seminar provides an overview of the social, economic, and environmental benefits of incorporating hot-dip galvanized steel in parking structures. Seminar content includes how galvanized steel benefits the overall look, safety, and construction of the garage, as well as the economic savings during construction, use, and over the life of the parking structure, sustainable advantages, and more.

Special Guest Speaker, Brian Ward is a Senior Structural Steel Specialist serving the Dallas/Fort Worth market for the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). In addition, he is the lead for AISC's National Parking Program. His primary role at AISC is to serve as a resource to the AEC community in the DFW area on the latest innovations and information on all facets related to the design and construction of structural steel. Before joining AISC, Brian worked for a steel fabricator as a design engineer and regional sales manager for 16 years. Additionally, he served as a senior project engineer for a national general contractor for two years. Brian earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University in College Station.
