    30 Minute Update
    AISC will speak on 2 major topics that impact the future of fabrication.

    AISC VP of Engineering and Research, Larry Kruth and VP of Certification, Mark Trimble will present:

    SpeedCore building concepts may revolutionize multistory steel construction and significantly shrink overall building schedules to complete with concrete construction.

    The responsibility for submitting a Certificate of Compliance may be a new concept for AISC and NON-AISC Certified fabricators. AISC will communicate possible language and requirements required per the IBC Building Code.

    90 Minute Panel Discussion and Q & A
    “Project Management and the Software” that we all rely on to keep up with the demands of today's “connected” fabrication world.

    3 CFA member companies will provide insights to how they leverage their project management software platforms. The leaders in the industry, FabTrol, FabSuite and Strumis will be discussed as it pertains to “Pre-Fabrication”, “Fabrication” and “Post-Fabrication” project management systems and how they interact with everyday life in our steel fabrication offices and shop floors.
