Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Hi folks.

I'm working on some building construction training and I'm looking for photos of new materials used in building construction. Who better to ask for ideas than you folks?

What I need is photos of Engineered I beams, Structural Insulated Panels, Poly-resin gusset plates and any and all newer construction materials that affect our profession.

Thanks for the sources/photos/ideas!

Just last week we did a lecture on Building construction. Our emphasis was on light weight building construction. I believe all of the items you requested are discussed in the presentation, but if not let me know I have some more stuff I would love to share.
Thanks Patrick!
Wow, 5 minutes after the question was asked I have an answer.

This is an awesome tool for access to training.

Anybody else have anything?
FYI, this is a training we got from Overland Park Fire Department when one of their Captains delivered the class. The class was put together by Joe Stapp OPFD Training Officer. Thanks for the info.
