What is AISC?
"The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the United States. AISC’s mission is to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in structural-steel-related technical and market-building activities, including: specification and code development, research, education, technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market development." (Quoted from www.aisc.org)
Why get certified?
The certification process and the annual audits it offers continuously sharpen the skills of your organization, increase the field performance of staff, and improve the image of your firm.
With over 1200 AISC Certified Facilities the demand by project Owners, and General Contractors for Certified Fabricators and Erectors has skyrocketed.
AISC Certification means access to more work — but it also means much more. By understanding and meeting AISC requirements, a fabricator and erector can reap the benefits inherent in any well-managed quality program: reduced costs and greater productivity that flows straight to the bottom line.
