The largest Steel Stockholders and Steel Suppliers in the UK

Steel for Life

Proud to be Headline Sponsor for Stockholding & Distribution

Committed to our industry

As a sign of our commitment to the future of the UK steel industry, Barrett Steel Limited have become a headline sponsor for The British Constructional Steelwork Association's (BCSA) new initiative - Steel for Life.

Steel for Life is a new market development programme designed to ensure that steel maintains and develops its leading position as the preferred supplier of framing solutions for key sectors of the market.

Steel for Life will carry on from the work of the BCSA market development programme that has led the sector’s drive to provide information and education to the construction industry on the benefits of steel for the past five years.

Steel has earned a very high market share, partly, because of the efforts across the supply chain (over many years) to ensure the quality and cost effectiveness of the fabricated product. Making sure that engineers and architects have everything to hand to make designing in steel as straightforward and economic as it can be. Steel for Life will develop that legacy, drawing on the resources of the whole steel supply chain.

Working together

BCSA Director General Sarah McCann Bartlett has commented: “This new industry-wide approach will provide significant benefits to clients, specifiers and main contractors. Technical materials and practical design tools will continue to be developed and the single steel construction information portal, will be regularly updated as a valuable resource to the broader construction industry".

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 will be funded by sponsors from across the supply chain (including Barrett Steel), as well as BCSA and industry members who supply related products and services.

It will be overseen by an independent Advisory Board, made up of BCSA members and key sponsors including Barrett Steel to ensure a tailored and collaborative offering.
