I often use this column as a soapbox for issues facing the structural steelwork sector – who wouldn’t? But this month’s column is all about celebration.
Celebration of the incredible industry that is structural steelwork. An industry that I’ve worked in for 15 years. When I’m walking around the City of
London and look up to see one of the many great buildings I’ve worked on over the years, I feel a rush of pride as I tell myself – I helped create that. And happily for me, I’m able to travel the length and breadth of the UK and more often than not, I will come across one of ‘my’ projects.
Of course, these projects aren’t really mine. They belong to the whole team; from the client to the designers to the specialists who took a concept and
made something out of it. They also belong to the people who live, work or play in that building or structure.
