A Step Change in Sustainability
The subject for debate at the 2014 annual event was what drives modern steel construction and excess steel use, and do we need a step change in the sustainability of steel construction?
The SCI annual event was very well attended by designers, manufacturers, contractors and professional bodies from the steel industry. Attendees pick their highlights and suggest the networking value in the 5 minute video (above), while the main presentation is available in 2 parts (below).
Guest speakers from Cambridge University and William Hare presented their views on whether a step change in the sustainability of steel construction is required and possible.
