Structures and Infrastructure Technical Group: Structural Steelwork - Specifying the Future
2021 will see changes to the steelwork specifications for both buildings and bridges in the UK. This event aims to review the new specifications with presentations from those involved in drafting specifications and those who use them. It is expected that attendees will take the opportunity to discuss issues and interpretations with the benefit of those present.
All are welcome to attend and the format is of a series of presentations from industrial specialists with the intention of stimulating discussion of the topics presented.
