  • Huber Speaks at NASCC

    April 19, 2018 — Matt Huber, PE, spoke at the recent NASCC conference in Baltimore, MD, on April 11. The topic of his presentation was “Delegated Connection Design – Best Practices to Promote the Steel Industry.” Delegated connection design is a widely accepted and encouraged design practice in the steel design industry. Used skillfully, it results in a deliverable that benefits all parties by giving EORs control over the final structural product and fabricators the flexibility they need to deliver an efficient, cost-effective package. In his presentation, Matt analyzed common pitfalls in the use of delegated connection design, (which lead to more expensive structures, difficulties in construction, and delays in schedule) and best delegated connection design practices to combat these perils.

    Matt leads the firm’s fabricator steel group of 35 connection design engineers. He has been delivering projects using a delegated connection design model for more than 10 years and is an expert in both the American steel codes, AISC-360 (LRFD/ASD), and the Canadian steel code, CSA Design of Steel Structures.
