Steel for Life is a new market development programme designed to ensure that steel maintains and develops its leading position as the preferred supplier of framing solutions for key sectors of the market like multi-storey buildings and single storey industrial buildings.
Steel for life’s key purpose is to communicate and disseminate the advantages that steel offers to the construction sector which make it the material of choice for a wide range of buildings, bridges and other structures.
This industry-wide approach provides significant benefits to clients, specifiers and main contractors. By working together as an integrated supply chain for the delivery of steel-framed solutions, the constructional steelwork sector will continue to innovate, educate specifiers and clients, and market the significant benefits of steel in construction.
