The environmental advantages of re-using reclaimed structural steel are considerable, compared to the common practice of recycling.
This publication proposes a system of investigation and testing to establish material characteristics, with advice for designers completing member verifications of reclaimed steelwork. It places important responsibilities on the holder of reclaimed steelwork including identification, assessment, control procedures and declarations of conformity.
The protocol is founded on the principle that given appropriate determination of material characteristics and tolerances, (re)fabricated reclaimed steelwork can be fabricated and CE marked in accordance with BS EN 1090.
