Ideation Center

The inspiration to innovate comes in many forms. Included in the Ideation Center are many illustrations of unique applications of cold-formed steel framed wall and ceiling systems. By example, these illustrations help foster creativity and encourage inventiveness. The applications are provided by the membership of AWCI and SFIA. They are presented in the Ideation Center as a library of photographs and case studies.

Case Studies

The case studies will focus on the applications of cold-formed steel framed systems in mid-rise construction.  Each case study will include photographs and background information about the features and benefits of the assemblies used.

Photo Galleries

The project photograph galleries illustrate unique applications of cold-formed steel framed systems in both exterior and interior applications. A short text that describes the primary design considerations will accompany each project.
