Join SSC

By joining SSC you can enjoy the benefits of belonging to an organisation dedicated to the advancement of steel as the sustainable construction material of choice.

Lean construction

The lean construction methodology is focused on generating the best possible value by minimising the waste of materials, time and effort.

Lean construction

This approach goes hand-in-hand with sustainable construction and the steel industry's credentials.

  • All steel construction products are manufactured off site and delivered to site pre-engineered, allowing simple and quick assembly and erection
  • Off-site manufacture is not delayed by poor weather, unlike site construction work. And by reducing the duration of site working, the risk of weather-related delays is reduced
  • The factory working environment produces precision, high-quality products, which can be easily standardised, tested and approved
  • High-tech manufacturing processes minimise defects and waste generation, in the factory and on site
  • Any steel waste produced during manufacture is recycled to make new steel
  • Just-in-time delivery of steel construction components greatly reduces the need for on-site storage of products and materials
