en 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 Janis, CSI , repre- senting 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 world- wide. The seminar was held at DuPont Corian Design Stu- dio, 49 W. 23rd St., 3rd floor, NYC. Participants came to gain information on a topic that offers potential for creativity and added value in construc- tion and design. Each attendee received 1 LU-HSW, AIA CEU credit. Heather Fraser, AIA , with Martinez + Johnson , said that since her office uses Julius Blum components she is eager “to learn how to streamline the selection process.” Monica Victory with Verus Inc. , found the topic relevant to her needs and interests since “I began my construction career in ornamental metal and glass and want to keep up with the latest trends in this area.” Oreste Drapaca, R.A. , with Moulin & Associates, Inc., explained that “For our commercial and residential projects, we are interested in finding alternatives to custom fabrication that deliver the high quality we expect in a reasonable time frame.” 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 ma- terial will best fit a building’s design and budget needs. He noted the qualities of various materials from carbon steel through, for example, architec- tural bronze, nickel silver, and stainless steel, which is both very expensive and the most corrosion resistant metal. Ja- nis 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.
