The recently concluded series of Steel Essentials seminars attracted a record number of attendees across all four venues.

Last autumn’s series of seminars were held in Cardiff, London, Leeds and Edinburgh. The London event was attended by more than 200, Leeds by 139, while both Cardiff and Edinburgh had more than 90 attendees.

Hosted by Tata Steel and the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA), Steel Essentials provided an opportunity for designers to keep up-to-date with the latest developments on important steel construction related topics.

Experts from Tata Steel and the BCSA spoke at the seminars and topics included sustainability and steel construction, steel specification and design, practical EC3 design, steel grades, and design for fire.

Summing up the successful series, Dave Chapman of Tata Steel, who hosted the EC3 design presentations, said: “As CE Marking of structural steelwork will become mandatory in the UK on 1st July, this topic provoked the most interest and discussion.”
