BCSA promotes steel to the RICS
BCSA has been actively promoting the value benefits of steel construction by making presentations to leading cost consultants, quantity surveyors and the QS executive committee of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
David Linnell, BCSA Commercial Director, has been stressing the inherent competency and professionalism of BCSA members, while also covering subject matters such as Target Zero, which is a £1M initiative to help zero carbon buildings become a reality (www.targetzero.info).
The project will provide designers and specifiers with the guidance they need to meet the emissions reduction targets towards the aspiration of zero carbon by 2019.
Other major topics of Mr Linnell’s presentations have included sustainability (www.sustainablesteel.co.uk), cost/value competitiveness, why steel is the preferred solution and the unique multicyclability of steel in construction.
The presentations form part of an ongoing BCSA programme of direct engagement with quantity surveyors.
Derek Tordoff, BCSA Director General, said: “Corus, BCSA and SCI would be pleased to give presentations and teach-ins to interested consulting engineers, quantity surveyors and contractors”
