INTRODUCTION Steel continues to be the most popular frame material and this year’s entries reflect the increasingly high standards that are being achieved, not only in design and all aspects of fabrication, but also in the short programmes and accuracy on site. We look forward to the continuing improvement in demand for the whole of the steel construction industry which will allow specifiers to develop even greater advantages in the flexibility of steel, and in the demonstrable economy and efficiency of steel structures. It is hoped that the Design Awards will continue to stimulate interest and contribute to the growth of steel-framed construction.
