Websites’ popularity increases
The BCSA’s website, www.steelconstruction.org is being increasingly used by specifiers wishing to find information about steel construction companies, products and suppliers.
Derek Tordoff, BCSA Director General, said: “There is a steep upward trend of more and more monthly requests for member company information. We are now getting circa 400 requests per day.”
Meanwhile, during January the New Steel Construction magazine website www.new-steel-construction.com continued to go from strength to strength.
During the month the most viewed articles were the features on the East London Railway extension and the technical piece on fire protection of beams with web openings.
However, topping both of these articles, and possibly proving that web viewers also have a historical leaning, was the 40 Years Ago Building with Steel article which received 119 hits. The story entitled New Steelwork Specification, outlining the contents of the 5th edition of the National Structural Steelwork Specification for Building, received 62 hits and was the most viewed news item for January.
