CFSEI to Host Webinar on Building Information Modeling and Cold-Formed Steel on June 2, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 26, 2016 —The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) will host a webinar on “Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Cold-Formed Steel” on Thursday, June 2, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. EDT. The webinar is designed for architects, engineers, building officials and contractors. Participants are eligible for 1.5 PDHs.


The webinar will explore the use of cold-formed steel used in a BIM workflow for metal building design, with an emphasis on roll-formed members such as girts and purlins. It will cover software tools and the importance of the location of girt and purlin members.

The webinar will be conducted by Ricky Rodriguez, BIM/VDC Specialist for BlueScope Buildings North America. He is an AutoCAD Certified Professional, with experience as a steel detailer and field services technician. More information on the webinar and registration details are available at

The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute comprises hundreds of structural engineers and other design professionals who are finding a better way to produce safe and efficient designs for commercial and residential structures with cold-formed steel. CFSEI members work together to develop and evolve industry standards and design methods, produce and issue technical bulletins, and provide seminars and online training to improve the knowledge and skills base of engineers and design professionals.
