On Oct. 9, Professional Women in Construction (PWC) opened its 2013/14 academic year of continuing education seminars and classes with an evening program, “Use of Stock Components for Architectural Metalwork,” a presentation by David A. Janis, representing Julius Blum & Co. Inc. one of the nation’s largest distributors of the components that constitute many of the majestic staircases, gates, balconies and more found in thousands of commercial and residential buildings worldwide. The seminar was held at DuPont Corian Design Studio, 49 W. 23rd St., 3rd floor, NYC.

Participants came to gain information on a topic that offers potential for creativity and added value in construction and design. Each attendee received 1 LU-HSW, AIA CEU credit.

Janis offered a brief history of Julius Blum & Co., a fourth generation family business, then detailed stock component choices in the marketplace and ways to determine which material will best fit a building’s design and budget needs. He noted the qualities of various materials from carbon steel through, for example, architectural bronze, nickel silver and stainless steel, which is both very expensive and the most corrosion resistant metal. Janis also discussed railing codes and standards and showed photos of installations used throughout the nation from New York to LA including our own backyard in Scarsdale.

PWC Continuing Ed courses, initiated in 2012, are free to members; $10 for non-members.
