No multi-story building can do without stairs, yet the design of these critical building components is commonly overlooked or left to other parties. Drawing from the wisdom of the author of AISC Design Guide 34, Steel-Framed Stairway Design, this two-part webinar will address the necessary coordination, layout, and structural design considerations to raise your next building or industrial structure project to the next level.
