AISC Certified

Contour Steel was one of the first erectors nationwide to earn the status of Certified Advanced Steel Erector from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).  Only erectors with a proven commitment to safety and quality—as well as a record of many years’ experience in complex projects—qualify for this designation.  Proficiency in the following areas must include:

• construction from water

• staged construction for maintenance of traffic

• coordination with railroads

• composite construction

• concrete core construction

• close tolerance erection (i.e. architecturally exposed structural steel)

• use of gantry and other specialized crane lifting systems

• implementation of the quality and safety systems defined in the Certified Advanced Steel Erector checklist


Certified Advanced Steel Erectors have the proven ability to erect large public and institution buildings, heavy manufacturing plants, bunkers and bins, major bridges, continuous girder bridges, railroad bridges, power houses, major industrial facilities, locks and dams, high rise structures greater than ten stories, and repair and rehabilitation of existing steel structures.
