New website dedicated to steel in construction launched

28 November 2017 Brussels, Belgium

The World Steel Association (worldsteel) is pleased to announce the launch of its website dedicated to steel in construction, constructsteel.org. The idea to develop this dedicated website originated from a global customer survey conducted across the steel construction value chain. The result identified positive steps made in this sector and raised some concerns that impact the use of steel in construction.

The primary role of the website is to address a number of concerns:

  1. Limited information and solutions available to designers in the use of steel in construction;
  2. Steel construction related information is dispersed and difficult to find.

The website acts as a hub by centralising steel construction related information and products in a segmented and easy to use manner. It is a resource library for architects, engineers, contractors, fabricators, customers and the steel industry.

In addition, the website acts as a platform through which current and future steel construction market development initiatives promoted by the steel industry, customers and partners are rolled out.
