Steel for Life was launched in 2016 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the BCSA.

Steel for Life’s activity is made possible by funding from the Steel Constructional Supply chain. This industry wide approach provides significant benefits to clients, specifiers and main contractors.

By working together as an integrated supply chain for the delivery of steel framed solutions, the constructional steelwork sector will continue to innovate, educate specifiers and clients, and market the significant benefits of steel in construction.

Steel for Life would like to thank its sponsors from across the steel supply chain.
