The SA Institute of Steel Construction and SASFA, together with the University of Stellenbosch, will be offering two consecutive one-day training courses to assist practitioners to master the SANS code for LSFB in a short period of time, and to learn how to design thin gauge cold-formed steel structures. Both of the courses will qualify for CPD points.
Day 1: Code course – SANS 517 Light Steel Frame Building
SANS 517 Light Steel Frame Building was published by the SABS at the end of 2009 and updated in 2011 and 2013. A full day training course will be presented to assist practitioners to understand and quickly implement the standard.
All the facets of the standard will be covered by John Barnard (SASFA) and Mike Hull (Hull Consulting) – from foundations and the steel frame to floors, walls and roofs, including insulation and installation of services.
Mike received his B Eng and M Eng degrees from University of Pretoria. He is a professional engineer, and has been involved in LSFB over the past 6 years. John obtained his B Eng Civ and B Eng (HONS) Structural from University of Pretoria. He has been instrumental in establishing SASFA and the development of the LSFB industry in Southern Africa.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at engineers, architects,quantity surveyors, developers, builders and
suppliers to this industry. CPD points apply.
