AESS: Categorized By Design

Learn Over Lunch

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Architects want architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) on projects to meet their expectations for appearance, budget, quality, and structural integrity. The category system implemented in the AISC Code of Standard Practice effectively communicates expectations and should be utilized on any AESS project. Participants in this program will learn how and when to implement the AESS Category Method to effectively communicate the desired appearance for architecturally exposed structural steel in a format that contractors can understand.

Learning objectives

  1. Identify and specify AESS in the contract documents using the category method.
  2. Identify available resources for additional information when applying AESS on upcoming projects.
  3. Explain the factors which impact the implementation of AESS.
  4. Discuss the expectations of fabrication and erection of AESS under the 2016 AISC Code of Standard Practice.
