ShedSafe Engineering Workshop: Cold-formed steel shed design - QLD

ShedSafe is hosting a one-day workshop for accredited members and engineers that provide certification to our members.

The keynote speaker is Dr John Ginger from James Cook University Cyclone Testing Station who will be providing a comprehensive report on the recently completed project “Study of internal pressure fluctuations in steel sheds”. ShedSafe is the industry partner for this project.

The ShedSafe Site Check software has developed a number of advanced features to provide accurate and economical site classification and these will be demonstrated by power user Rhiannon Simpson.

There will also be a series of presentations by experienced engineers on aspects of critical design including design of roller door mullions and connections.

Key topics

  • Results of full scale testing of steel shed
  • ShedSafe Site Check software – Details and live demonstration
  • Design of door mullions and connections

Seminar attendance

Attendance is by invitation only and limited to ShedSafe members and associated certifying engineers.
