Title: HSS & Sustainability: Removing the Myths
Date: Wednesday, November 30, 2022
Time: 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. CST

Engineers and architects face new decisions on how to lower the embodied carbon of the built environment.  The type of material used in a project has an impact on these decisions and there is a lot of misinformation out there about some materials.  Hollow Structural Sections (HSS), which is an integral part of the structural steel family, is often considered to be a poor choice when looking to limit embodied carbon.  This presentation will show how HSS, like all structural steel, can be a contributor to lowering the embodied carbon for a project.  It will explore the site specific EPDs that are available and the information that is used to develop them.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how HSS is produced and how it helps designers meet sustainability goals
  • Understand the “inaccuracies” of some information out there.
  • Become aware of the available EPDs for HSS
  • Understand the information behind the EPD.

Professional Development Hours
Each participant can earn 1.0 PDH and receive a certificate of completion from the Steel Tube Institute (STI). To receive a PDH certificate from STI, either for an individual or anybody in the group/site, you must complete both poll questions and attend the entire webinar.

Any participant that is licensed in Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, and/or New York is required to complete a quiz and submit your license number(s) for your PDH. The link will be emailed to the registrant at the conclusion of the webinar and must be completed within 24 hours of the conclusion of the webinar. If you are a site registration, the registrant will need to send this link to any participant that is licensed in any of these four states.

Site registrants will also need to complete and return an attendee form to confirm attendance. This form will be included in your confirmation email from GoToWebinar. Once completed, the form shall be emailed to within 24 hours after the completion of the webinar.

Registration Fees
Registration is $95 per person for individual and $300 for site registration.

  • An individual registration will provide a unique link for one login. Registrant is eligible for one PDH certificate provided the poll is completed at the conclusion of the webinar.
  • Site registration provides one link for login at a site location (i.e. the Chicago office), allowing multiple people to view the webinar in one room. Multiple PDH certificates may be issued provided the poll is completed by the registrant at the completion of the webinar and the attendee form is completed and returned within 24 hours of the webinar conclusion.
