New BCSA technical manager for Ireland
Andrew will provide support to designers and users of steel on a range of topics including specification, structural fire engineering, sustainability and Eurocodes. He will also ensure that engineers and architects are aware of all the useful resources available from the BCSA, Tata Steel and the SCI.
“My job is to spread the word that steel construction is more cost-effective than alternatives, as is proven by a long standing series of Cost Comparison studies,” said Mr Bisp.
Steel has a solid pedigree in both Northern Ireland and in the Republic. Recent prestige projects include the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Dublin airport’s new terminal, the National Convention Centre, and flagship retail and commercial developments. Many of the highway bridges built in recent years have been steel, taking advantage of the longer spans that are possible using steel sections.
