Steel Structures Seminar Series - May 2017

 
The 2017 edition of our popular Steel Structures Seminar is a must-attend event for practising structural engineers, builders, council building consent personnel, engineering students and academics.

First up will be an overview of the new Steel Fabrication and Erection Standard – AS/NZS 5131:2016. Attendees will learn how to apply a risk-based approach to achieve a fit-for-purpose specification for steel structures.

The half-day seminar will also explore how steel product conformity is assessed, the potential to achieve economy when designing and specifying bolted connections, and the latest research in gusset plate design for seismic frames.

FEATURED CASE STUDY:

University of Auckland, Science Tower


In 2010 the University of Auckland embarked on a five-year project to upgrade its Faculty of Science buildings. The $290 million redevelopment consisted of the refurbishment and seismic strengthening of two existing buildings, construction of
a new link structure, and demolition of two buildings to make way for the new Science Centre Tower. 

The resulting state-of-the-art research and teaching facility is
a steel-framed structure featuring buckling restrained braces (BRBs) that forms an impressive entranceway to the University.
