Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam Co. Ltd. receives the AISC certification

Sunday, 14th August 2016

Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam Co. Ltd. - Dong Nai Factory has been certified by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) for meeting the standards of steel building structures and sophisticated paint endorsement, thus becoming the first steel buildings provider to receive AISC certification for these standards in Vietnam.

The AISC, headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the United States and worldwide. AISC's mission is to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in structural-steel-related technical and market-building activities, including specification and code development, research, education, technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market development.

AISC's Standard for Steel Building Structures is widely recognized among North American builders and contractors when assessing the fabricator's capability to satisfy project quality needs. Structural steel fabricators must undergo an initial evaluation program, audited directly by AISC's independent auditors in order to be certified, and are subject to yearly review. The audit scope includes all functions of structural steel fabrication, from the receipt of the contract until final delivery, excluding the erection process.

The Sophisticated Paint Endorsement (SPE) is a program included in the AISC's Standard for Steel Building Structures Certification that inspects the fabricator's painting facility for complex protective coating systems, such as zincs, epoxies, urethanes, and multi-coat systems.

An AISC-certified fabricator for steel building structures is automatically certified for conventional steel building structures. By meeting AISC's Standard for Steel Building Structures, fabricators are confirmed by the AISC to have the facilities, personnel, organizational experience, procedures, knowledge, equipment, and commitment for structural steel building construction.

An AISC fabricator is often entrusted with large public service and institutional buildings, heavy manufacturing plants, powerhouses, metal producing/rolling buildings, stadiums, auditoriums, high-rise buildings, and chemical and petrochemical plants.

As an AISC-certified fabricator, Zamil Steel Buildings Vietnam Co., Ltd. is now ranked among the world's most trusted structural steel suppliers for large-scale industrial projects. The company ensures that the quality of clients' projects strictly meets the AISC Standards for Steel Building Structures and sophisticated painting endorsement, alleviating client concerns about quality inspection and saving money.
