When properly executed, the decision to expose structural steel offers a powerful opportunity to express a project’s tectonics and aesthetic goals. The 2016 American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Code of Standard Practice for Steel Bridges and Buildings (ANSI/AISC 303) introduced the architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) category system, a systematic method of communicating craftsmanship quality to support goals for the final appearance of the finished structure. Today, when properly understood and leveraged, the Category system can support project outcomes that meet designers’ intent, are properly budgeted during the bid process, and achieve ultimate aesthetic goals for which fabrication quality is a foundation. Even as designers have become more familiar with the category approach, additional questions have arisen about achieving AESS goals successfully and industry resources have been developed in response. This presentation will provide an overview of guidance on best practices for designers considering AESS for their projects.
