SCI to lead the debate at Futurebuild
Offsite construction methodologies will be one of the main topics at this year’s Futurebuild conference.
Taking place from 27 February to 1 March at London’s Earls Court 2, the conference is widely regarded as the most authoritative platform for offsite and modern methods of construction.
SCI said it will lead the debate on steel technology with Dr Graham Owens, Director for SCI, chairing the ‘Steel Technology and Offsite Construction’ seminar on 1 March.
Also taking part in the same seminar will be Terry Goodwin, Director Business Development Corus Strip Division, who will discuss the role of steel in a modern construction industry.
Dr Martin Heywood, Manager Construction Technology SCI, will outline the benefits of offsite steel construction in urban locations; Dave Turnbull, Managing Director of Caledonian Building Systems, will present priorities in the use of steel in offsite construction; John Williams, Marketing Manager for Kingspan, will discuss designing multi storey steel frame structures without a primary frame; Aran Chadwick, Atelier One Director, will focus on modular construction; and Keith Blanshard, Yorkon Director, will outline how a steel frame’s offsite construction meets the sustainability challenge.
To support these presentations, case studies from Unite Modular Solutions and Waterman Structures will be shown.
Running parallel with Futurebuild is the Ecobuild conference. On 27 February as part of the ‘Great Materials’ debate, Dr Michael Sansom, Manager Sustainability Group at SCI, will present the case for the sustainability of steel in construction.
An exhibition will also run throughout the conferences and the SCI stand (F282) will be of particular interest to those who need in-depth information on the effective use and the benefits of steel in construction.
