The leader in online education lands squarely on the green with its 80th green building course, which explores the use of light gauge metal components for framing.
RedVector is pleased to announce the launch of the 80th addition to its online green building course library, “Green Building with Steel – Part 3: Light Gauge Metal Components for Framing.” This new green building course brings the RedVector online library to over 215 hours of green building courses, one of the largest online green building course libraries in the design and construction industry.
Steel becomes Mainstream Building Material
Because of its ease of assembly and inherently recyclability, steel is rapidly becoming a mainstream structural building material among green building aficionados. This entry in the popular “Green Building with Steel” online course series teaches building professionals about the benefits of light gauge steel framing and provides guidelines for the use of structural and non-structural steel walls, steel wall components, steel flooring systems and fasteners, and more.
“The first two courses in the ‘Green Building with Steel’ series covered material attributes, applications, insulation, waterproofing, and other considerations,” said Jeff Nippes, Product Development Coordinator for RedVector. “This one sheds light on something that might seem counterintuitive at first: Steel frames actually provide better strength, quality and performance than wood, and those characteristics let designers create structures that are safer and more durable.”
