YAF Builds - Iron Workers

6:00 PM
The Builders Association Education and Training Center | 105 West 12th Avenue North Kansas City, MO 64116 Map

Join the AIA Kansas City Young Architects Forum (YAF) for the second in a series of hands-on training events - YAF: Builds. 

Similar to our first YAF: Builds event on the masonry trades, this event will explore the iron workers trade; We will specifically focus on the ironworkers’ apprenticeship training offered at The Builders’ Association’s Training Center, in North Kansas City, and explore how we as design professionals can better integrate our own experience with the men and women fabricating and erecting our designs. Brian Garret, President of the Iron Workers Local 10, will facilitate a short presentation with panel discussion, a facility tour, and a hands-on welding exercise. 

Please make sure to wear jeans and sturdy leather footwear for the welding exercise.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided. 

Meet the panel:
Richard Bruce, Ph.D.; The Builder’s Association, Workforce & Professional Development Director.
Brian Garrett; Iron Workers Local 10, President, Training Director
