Friday 6th November 2020.
We are pleased to announce that guest speakers from WSP have very kindly offered to talk to us about some recent projects, including a large-scale modular scheme at Gatwick airport and Shard Place in London Bridge.
Presentations on SCI will include a brief overview of SCI as an organisation, highlighting how much we have evolved from the days when we received significant guaranteed funding from the national steel producer (the company formerly known as British Steel) in order to grow the market share for steel in construction. That source of funding has all but disappeared, as has the need for growth given steel’s current market share. New offerings and new sources of funding are needed to maintain our relevance, and that market position for steel.
We will then have a series of ‘flash’ presentations from senior SCI staff members which will highlight some recent activities that reflect current issues and drivers for steel construction in the UK – higher strength materials, reusable products, certification and accreditation of proprietary products, and twin-skin composite alternatives to reinforced concrete.
The SCI Annual Event is an online Event and free for anyone to attend.
