Cold-formed steel (CFS) framing has a proven track record of providing energy-saving and sustainability benefits for buildings of all shapes and sizes. CFS framing can also be the primary structural element in mid-rise construction and meets all of the required building codes and standards.

In this webinar we will explore the use of cold-formed steel assemblies in mid-rise construction. It is intended to provide instruction on the capacity of cold-formed steel framed assemblies in both structural and non-structural applications found in mid-rise buildings.
