CFS Jobsite Tours

Demonstrating the Benefits of Building with Cold Formed Steel in Hawaii








The Hawaii Steel Alliance frequently conducts CFS Jobsite Tours on Oahu. One of the tours was held at the Plaza at Pearl City.  This new assisted living structure features reinforced concrete, structural steel, and cold-formed steel framing. General Contractor Sound Building Systems Hawaii, Framing Contractor Group Builders, and structural engineer Baldridge & Associates Structural Engineers hosted the tour for several HSA and CFSEI members and guests.

Another tour was held at the KaMalanai Condominium Project in Kailua. This project consists of six- four story condominium structures featuring reinforced concrete decks and cold-formed steel framing. General Contractor DR Horton- Schuler Division, Framing Contractor Sunrise Construction and Baldridge & Associates Structural Engineers hosted the tour and kept the jobsite open for the many HSA and CFSEI members and guests.

CFS was selected for these projects due to its non-combustable fire ratings, wide open spaces, and straight walls. As one of the structural engineers said while touring the project, "You can attend all the technical seminars on CFS Midrise in the world, but nothing compares with seeing a real building going up."


Immediately following each tour, attendees gather at a local watering hole for great after tour conversation and networking.
