GEOTECH/STRUCT/MAT/CONSTR Seminar: Lee Shoemaker
Title: "Metal Building Systems and Engineering Opportunities."
Metal building systems are used in over one-third of nonresidential low-rise construction in the United States. This presentation will answer all of your burning questions about metal buildings. What are metal buildings? How are they different from other forms of construction? How are they designed, fabricated and constructed? What engineering career opportunities are available in the metal building industry?
W. Lee Shoemaker has served as the Director of Research and Engineering for the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) since 1994. He received his Bachelor’s Degree and PhD in Civil Engineering from Duke University and his Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering from Tulane University.
Shoemaker's responsibilities with MBMA include directing the technical research and education programs as well as representing MBMA on several technical committees including ASCE 7 Committee on Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, and the AISC Committee on Specifications for Structural Steel Buildings.
