Steel for Life

Steel For Life

National Tube Stockholders Ltd and Cleveland Steel and Tubes Ltd are proud to be joint Gold Sponsors of Steel For Life, together with the BCSA we promote the use of steel in construction, it’s at the heart of what we do.

Steel is a key component in the construction industry for buildings, bridges and other structures, it is a sustainable option and is often the product of choice for designers and architects alike. With a mature and expert supply chain, fabricated steelwork supports sophisticated design, not to mention it is architecturally good and easy on the eye.

The vast majority of steel in the UK is recycled, it can be reclaimed, processed and then reused in the steelmaking process to produce new batches of steel slabs or coils, it’s lifecycle is infinite.

Some of the advantages offered by steel;

  • Cost effectiveness
  • Structural efficiency and lean manufacture
  • Assured quality
  • Speed of construction
  • Sustainability
  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Design flexibility
  • Supports green buildings

Both NTS and CST encourage involvement with the activities of Steel For Life to ensure a sustainable future for our country, through this we are supporting the supply chain to ensure steel remains cost competitive against alternate building materials and our products are readily available.
