Ironworkers fabricate and construct the structural steel framework of single and multi-story building, stadiums, arenas, hospitals, towers and bridges.  Ironworkers place reinforcing bars (rebar), as well as installing post-tensioning systems.  They also specialize in finishing building by assembling curtain wall and window wall systems, stairs and handrails, metal doors, sheeting and elevator fronts.
