what is ironworking--different aspects of trade.
Structural--arguably the most defining facet of the trade. Connectors, riggers, raising gang, work with crane operators
crane signals, charts
Reinforcing--the bread and butter of most of the trade. places the rebar that strengthens the concrete in bridges, highways, and structural floors--works mostly with carpenters and cement masons.
Ornamental--the "nice" work. handrails, stairs, artwork, finishwork. works mostly with shop ironworkers.
Decking--dangerous without the glamor. placing and fastening steel decking on structual steel--the support for concrete floors. may or may not work "with" cement masons and carpenters.
Bridge--builds and maintains bridges.
Welding--an aspect of all phases of the trade.
