About the CPD: Sustainable steel buildings

Steel offers sustainability credentials through the whole life-cycle of a building, and is an excellent choice of framing material to deliver high-scoring BREEAM projects. This CPD article examines a number of steel’s sustainability credentials – both established and emerging – including its:

  • Off-site manufacturing process
  • Flexibility and adaptability
  • Performance in regard to embodied carbon
  • Ability to be re-used, recycled and multi-cycled
  • Alignment with circular economy principles
