UK Steel Construction Day
2019: Innovative Steel
At this event we will look at a
range of different solutions
that address the multiple
needs to build with improved
speed, quality, safety,
predictability, and using less
materials. Some of these
solutions are already being
applied, others are for the
Steelwork clamping systems producer Lindapter are to
offer a new Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
seminar to specifiers involved with the design of steelwork
The company said it is committed to providing a faster,
cost-effective alternative to drilling or welding and wants to
give the highest level of service and technical expertise to
The seminar will cover the latest CE marked solutions
for safely connecting structural steel sections including
SHS, beams and channels. Delegates will receive an update
about additional connection methods to complement their
existing specification options.
The seminar content will include: an introduction to
Lindapter; a comparison between traditional connection
methods versus the Lindapter method; typical applications,
installation and case studies; and a discussion on technical
support, research and development.
“The seminar lasts around 50 minutes followed by a
Q&A session and is a general awareness seminar. As you
would expect, the CPD normally takes place at lunchtime
with a complimentary lunch.” said Lindapter’s Marketing

Light steel framing manufacturer voestalpine Metsec has
created a new facility on its website which it said will allow
the design, construction and installation teams to more
easily understand and incorporate the company’s prepanelised
building system, Metframe.
Sixty interactive 3D models have been created and
organised into two distinct areas, each aimed at specific
disciplines within the construction team.
Metframe Architectural Details feature 3D computergenerated,
colour illustrations of a variety of common
construction details, including window and brickwork, doors
in internal panel, stairwells with concrete half and quarter
landings, balcony and internal party wall with concrete floor.
Each of the twenty-four details in this section is designed
to provide support for architects and other members of the
design team by demonstrating the ease with which
Metframe accommodates different areas of a building’s
design and giving a clearer understanding of how the
various building elements interact with the system.
The screen also features a ‘Revit download’ button
through which users can request Revit files which can be
incorporated directly into their own design files, providing
useful additional information and enhancing BIM
The second section of Metframe 3D Details shows thirtysix
base level details. Aimed mainly at the contractor and
area is designed to
assist with the most common
steel-to-steel connections encountered during the
installation of Metframe. Illustrations include a typical
panel, window detail, brick tie rules for movement joints and
connections to different building elements such as steel
beams and concrete foundations.
Interactive 3D models will aid

Using its Montrose base as a launch pad, steel stockholder Barrett
Steel says it has ambitious Scotland-wide expansion plans.
Barrett Steel views its Montrose operation as the first part
of a potential three-phase plan that could see it expand into
Scotland’s central belt to the south and the Inverness area in
The firm’s Montrose arm currently focusses on an area that
runs from Aberdeen to the Forth Bridge.
Strategic Business Development Director Rob Ridge says
the company had just one employee in 2016 in Montrose and
now has a total of 32 members of staff.
Substantial investments of £2M in stock and a further £1M
in plant and machinery at the Montrose base has seen the
firm sell 17,500t of steel per year.
Barrett Steel has already expanded its Scottish operation. In
addition to its three-acre outdoor storage yard and warehouse
in Montrose, the company now has a second warehouse in the
town as well as a presence in Dundee and Bathgate.
