WASHINGTON, D.C., August 25, 2014 —The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) has redesigned its website, www.cfsei.org, to provide an updated look and easier access to information about its technology transfer tools and membership opportunities. The website also provides access to free downloadable AISI cold-formed steel design standards.

“The redesigned site is more streamlined and provides updated information about CFSEI and the technology transfer opportunities that we offer, including webinars led by industry experts, Technical Notes, design guides, research reports, construction details, and issue papers,” said Maribeth Rizzuto, LEED AP-BD&C, managing director of the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute. “The site also provides accessibility to free AISI cold-formed steel design standards, which can be easily downloaded by engineers, architects, building officials and other construction professionals worldwide. These free standards are also accessible through the new website address www.aisistandards.org.” 

Rizzuto said that the free standards are also available in their original printed format for purchase at AISI’s Online Store at https://shop.steel.org/

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.
