The Institution of Structural Engineers to host steel e-conference
Looking at how to use steel in an effective and sustainable way, the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) is hosting a three-day e-conference (online) starting on November 22.
The climate emergency is one of several drivers forcing professionals across the built environment to consider how to design in an effective and sustainable way.
The Institution’s ‘Modern uses of steel e-conference’ will help structural engineers understand how to deliver good designs that can be fabricated, executed, refurbished, and demounted for reuse, while also considering how to assess, source and reuse steel. The conference will cover real-life examples of how material and design efficiency can be achieved in a changing environment.
Day one of the conference is entitled ‘Designing efficiently with steel – design solutions.’ Speakers on this day include BCSA CEO David Moore and SCI Chief Executive Graham Couchman.
Day two concentrates on fabrication and execution; while day three’s content will be on reuse and refurbishment.
