BuildSteel, an alliance of steel and construction industry organizations, announced the release of “Cold-Formed Steel Framing: Engineering the Details of Your Next Project,” an e-book exploring several technical aspects of designing and engineering cold-formed steel framing for successful projects.

“The success of a construction project often comes down to the details,” said Dan Snyder, director of BuildSteel. “Beyond the major driving factors such as budget and timeline, building professionals must address the technical specifications that allow them to construct a building that’s safe, durable, structurally sound, and aesthetically appealing.”

Within the e-book, building professionals and engineers will learn:

  • How to engineer subfloors for better sound attenuation
  • How exterior continuous insulation requirements affect field integrations
  • How to address seemingly minor construction details that can have a significant impact on a project
