Steel and Sustainability

More and more building owners, architects, engineers and contractors are realizing the benefits of sustainable design and construction practices in improving not only the longevity of the earth's environment, but also the quality of the built environment. This is a series of PowerPoint slide sets that presents a comprehensive view of the cradle-to-cradle structural steel supply chain from a sustainability perspective, an overview of the rating systems, codes and standards related to sustainable design and practice as it relates to structural steel buildings and a brief introduction to the concepts and details related to thermal bridging for structural steel.
