Please forgive my ignorance, however I am in High School and two things have really been bothering me, how do the contractors go from the steel skeleton to installing that metal forming that lays on the steel: also what's the official name of that silver colored metal that is placed over the steel skeleton.
^ Above is a picture regarding my question.

I think you are talking about what is called the curtain wall which is installed using a system of metal framing. Look up curtain wall and see if this is what you are curious about.
