Title: Building Greener Part 1: HSS in Sustainable Design
Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2023
Time: 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CT
Format: Live Webinar
Level: Beginner

Have you lately been hearing buzzwords like “EPD,” “Buy Clean,” and of course, “sustainability”? These terms are all tied to the recent strong push to lower embodied carbon in buildings and contribute to a healthier planet. This webinar will discuss several of the fundamentals related to embodied carbon, the truth behind HSS environmental impacts, and how designers/steel suppliers can practically incorporate life cycle assessment considerations into your design projects. This free session is part one of two in our Sustainability Series for the month of October.

Learning Objectives
Webinar topics will include:

  • Understanding how HSS is produced and how it helps designers meet sustainability goals
  • Becoming aware of the available environmental product declarations (EPDs) for HSS
  • Practical advice for specifications and general notes for sustainable designs using steel

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 are required to attend the webinar in its entirety and complete the poll at the completion of the webinar.

Any participant that holds a PE license in Florida, Maryland, New York and/or North Carolina is required to complete a quiz 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 group/site registration, the registrant will need to send this link to any participant that is licensed in any of these four states.

Group/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.
