Sustainability takes centre stage in this issue with a four-page article outlining the BCSA’s decarbonisation Roadmap that sets out the route to net-zero steelmaking to be achieved by 2050.

Steel remains the cost-effective framing solution and NSC highlights this in a two-page steel prices feature, that explains how communication and collaboration between clients and the supply chain is proving to be a winning combination.

This month’s cover story is The Factory in Manchester, one of the world’s largest purpose-built cultural buildings and a steel-framed project that will ultimately deliver two indoor venues that will be separated by large moveable partitions.

In south London, NSC reports on the Forge which, by using the P-DfMA construction method, aims to be the capital’s first major net-zero commercial scheme.

Structural steelwork has provided all of the answers for the design of a leisure and day care centre in East Dunbartonshire. Steel was chosen as the only viable solution to create the project’s long-span column-free spaces.

In Cambridgeshire, a steel-framed temperature-controlled warehouse is being enlarged for the fourth time, with three spans measuring up to 55m-wide and 80m-long.

A footbridge, fabricated from gold-painted perforated steel plate, has provided a stunning landmark gateway to Swansea’s Copr Bay development.

NSC also features industry news, Steel for Life sponsor articles, a technical article and advisory desk from the Steel Construction Institute, and codes and standards updates.
