Sheffield Professor to launch new charter at Steel Conference
Professor Roger Plank of the University of Sheffield will launch the Steel Construction Sustainability Charter at the BCSA’s ‘Steel Construction – The Way Ahead’ Conference and Exhibition in London on 15 November 2005.
The charter will provide an industry definition of sustainability and companies who subscribe to the charter will demonstrate their commitment to meeting sustainability targets. Professor Plank will address delegates as part of the first session at the conference, to be chaired by SCI Chairman Peter Head OBE.
Project case studies will include a look at construction of the Swale Bridge in north Kent and Blackburn Hospital in Lancashire. BBC radio journalist John Humphrys is to chair a debate about future trends in construction.
Immediate Past President of the BCSA Tom Goldberg, Professor David Nethercot of Imperial College and BCSA Deputy President Richard Barrett are each to chair a session at the conference.
The conference fee of £160+VAT includes a copy of a new book on Steel Construction Details.
