Benefit to Attendees
Attendees of this course will be able to make educated decisions to reduce the cost and time required to complete a pre-engineered metal building project. They will gain insights into trade practices and learn how to avoid common pitfalls on this type of project.
A structure can be efficiently created through the use of pre-engineered metal building system. However, there are many techniques that can further enhance the timeliness and cost effectiveness of a project of this type. In addition, when a pre-engineered metal building system is utilized, there needs to be awareness of issues that commonly arise in order to avoid problems both during and after construction. Successful projects don’t just happen, they are carefully executed based upon educated decisions made before the project begins.
