NOMMA News & Events
Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Since 2000, when the U.S. Congress passed legislation, all Americans are encouraged to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time. Thank you to all who have served and sacrificed for our country. The NOMMA office will be closed on Monday, May 28 to mark this holiday.
OSHA - many companies cringe when hearing those four letters, but the safety of you and your employees is very important. Ensuring that your company has procedures in place to comply with OSHA laws, as well as training employees on those procedures, are key. Training can be provided through several different avenues, such as your insurance company, a third party company, or a staff member who has been certified to train. Don’t take safety lightly, be sure to check your company’s policies and update them as needed. Make certain employees are trained and adhere to said policies. Not complying with OSHA guidelines could cause a hefty fine. For more information, visit

Category L: Stairs Complete

(Commercial: Majority of the stair to be metal construction installed in commercial or public environment)

Featured Gold Winner: Grunau Metals, Oak Creek, Wisconsin
Description of project: This stair was designed to mimic medieval gothic style wrought iron architecture and was attached to the exterior of a castle-like turret. Key features were chosen through coordination between the design architect, GC, and fabricator. The final look was to incorporate minimal structure for a skeletal appearance while maintaining load calculations. To compensate for irregularities in the radius of the poured concrete foundation wall, the Grunau Metals team worked closely with the concrete contractor and obtained laser scanning of the cured wall after forms were removed. The Grunau Metals team then used the data with their own Trimble equipment to project points on our fabrication shop floor, engineering a steel turret, which dimensionally matched the concrete version on the field. They erected the entire stair structure based on the field data points collected. After fabrication, it was disassembled, shipped for galvanizing, and then re-assembled in sections at the job site. Not one piece required rework for erection.
