CASTINGS 204: Steel Castings for Transportation, Sports/ Entertainment, and Commercial Projects

The use of steel castings in the design and construction of building and bridge structures is a fast- growing trend in North America. Hailed for their ability to prolong the lifecycle of a project and more easily fulfill aesthetic requirements, castings have earned their place as one of the building industry’s up and coming technologies. In this presentation, attendees will learn about steel castings as they relate to Transportation, Sports/Entertainment, and Commercial Projects. Numerous examples of how steel castings have been used to enhance structural performance and architectural design will be included for each of these sectors, with special attention to how castings fit within the unique constraints to the design and budget of each example.


  • Identify applications for steel castings to increase aesthetic quality, structural performance, and resilience of critical transportation structures.
  • Explain key locations in modern Sports/Entertainment structures where castings can be used as key design elements in locations of public interaction with the structure, or where castings can be used to simplify the design and erection of the structure.
  • Explain the performance advantages of both custom and pre-engineered cast steel connection to various commercial building stakeholders.
  • Create a specification and details for castings which successfully communicates architectural and structural design criteria to casting suppliers such that the casting products delivered to the project can safely and efficiently carry structural loads and achieve the desired aesthetics.
