IIBEC proudly recognizes the exceptional efforts of its members annually though awards presented at our International Convention and Trade Show. All members, regardless of membership classification, are welcome to nominate their peers for an IIBEC honor through the official portal.
The American Iron and Steel Institute Standards Council is seeking research proposals for its 2024 Small Project/Fellowship Program. Launched in 2014, AISI’s Small Project/Fellowship Program identifies and provides funding for research projects that will significantly impact the reliability, performance and cost-competitiveness of cold-formed steel products.
The National Institute of Building Sciences, Building Information Management Council, partners, industry experts, and members have been working hard to complete the core modules of the next version of the National BIM Standard-United States.
The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance has updated a document establishing requirements for the material properties, including dimensional stability, weatherability and extrusion quality of rigid reinforced thermoplastic exterior profile extrusions used for assembled fenestration products.
FGIA has updated a document providing a standard laboratory procedure for evaluation of thermal cycling effects on large exterior fenestration components and cladding by an AAMA Accredited Independent Laboratory.
On Demand: This course will review the standard and test methods for gutter systems that secure membrane on commercial low-slope roof systems for load resistance and why that is important for specifiers.
On-Demand: This session will also focus on identifying the right clients, winning them over, and positioning your firm uniquely in the market. Prepare to be inspired by one of the most accomplished and forward-thinking experts in the AE industry!
On-Demand: This course will teach you about cold fluid-applied waterproofing systems which use specific types of chemistry to create an instant-setting, seamless membrane. Learn about their technical advantages, how these systems are installed, and the advantages of having full technical support during installation.
On-Demand: This one-hour course will cover Electronic Leak Detection (ELD) testing methods used for quality assurance of roofing and waterproofing membranes. Participants will learn about the principles outlined in the ASTM Standard Guide D7877 and ASTM Standard Practice D8231 and will be able to identify which assemblies are compatible with electronic testing and active monitoring.
