(PRWEB UK) 23 September 2013
Partners Tata Steel, the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA), and the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) have added a simple guide to fire protection to SteelConstruction.info, their free online encyclopaedia for UK steel construction information. Following the success of this summer’s Fire Engineering Seminars, at which experts discussed modern approaches to fire protection and fire safety engineering, online CPD presentations have also been uploaded to the site. These resources add to the information already available on the site regarding fire and steel construction at http://www.steelconstruction.info/Fire_and_steel_construction.
The seminars drew experts from the industry together to educate architects and engineers on principles and techniques of fire-safe designs and how they are applied in practice. Spokesperson Alan Todd from the BCSA commented: “Seminars on such vital subjects as fire protection are very useful to the delegates who attend and to the industry as a whole, as they enable experts to provide innovative advice and discuss new principles of design. Making them available online means that benefit is multiplied drastically, as professionals who were unable to attend the original seminars can now keep up-to-date as well.”
SteelConstruction.info is built and maintained in partnership by the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA), Tata Steel and the Steel Construction Institute (SCI) to offer construction professionals a wealth of up-to-date steel construction information and advice. Over one hundred interlinked articles written by industry experts and external consultants provide the heart of the site, alongside online CPD topics and external links to related events and training courses provided by the partners.
The site has also been expanded with new information and resources for students, case studies and informative videos, in line with the partners’ aim to create a complete resource for construction professionals and students alike. As a result, they have seen a significant increase in visitors which they expect to continue as the site’s reputation grows.
