Stone Bridge Iron & Steel, Inc., quality providers of fabricated structural steel and miscellaneous metals since 1973, announced today that on September 18, 2009, architects, engineers, contractors, and others involved in the AEC community will have the opportunity to visit, tour and interact with Stone Bridge Iron & Steel as part of SteelDay 2009. The event will kick off at 10:00 am EDT at the steel fabrication company’s facilities located at 426 Purinton Road in Gansevoort, NY and will include a barbeque lunch and guided tours of the AMD Global Foundries chip manufacturing plant being constructed in Malta, NY.
SteelDay is the first annual national event dedicated to providing the AEC community with accessibility to the latest happenings in the structural steel industry. The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) has designated September 18, 2009, as “SteelDay” in the U.S. where more than 80 events highlighting the value of steel construction have already been planned in 32 states, according to Chris Moor, AISC director of industry mobilization.
“We’re proud and excited to be one of the Northeast’s only steel fabricators to be opening our doors to the public and to the AEC community for SteelDay 2009,” said Mark Hutchinson, Stone Bridge vice president. “We hope to provide our visitors with a great networking opportunity and to offer them a day of interaction, education and relationship building while also demonstrating Stone Bridge’s ongoing commitment to this great industry. We see this as an opportunity to participate in educating people about the role that steel plays in our lives and in how we build America.”
SteelDay events at steel fabricators, mills, service centers, galvanizers and other facilities, are scheduled across the United States for individuals to tour facilities and jobsites, attend educational seminars, network, and see how the structural steel industry is contributing to build America.
Stone Bridge’s unique event will include guided tours of the AMD Global Foundries chip plant as it is being fabricated and the opportunity to see the bridge that won the 2009 “National Steel Bridge Competition” from SUNY Canton while visiting with SUNY’s engineering students and department heads.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to watch state-of-the-art CNC machines cut, drill, mark and process large steel members, to learn about the revolutionary More Park steel and pre-cast concrete parking system just introduced to the United States from Europe and to witness AceCad 3D-modelling software being demonstrated. Additionally, participants will be given access to company representatives and other industry experts.
This event is free of charge and continuing education credits will be registered with the American Institute of Architects. In addition, a certificate of attendance will be issued to everyone who attends.
