The Steel Construction Institute
Institute / association
SCI (the Steel Construction Institute) has been a trusted, independent source of information and engineering expertise globally for over 30 years, and remains the leading, independent provider of technical expertise and disseminator of best practice to the steel construction sector.
We support everyone involved in steel construction; from manufacturers, consulting and design engineers, architects, product managers, commercial directors right through to industry groups and peers.
Consulting and design engineers look to SCI for reliable and robust technical information and training on the effective use of steel in design, including the latest codes and building regulations. Our industry-defining Design Guides and Eurocode advice is renowned; in fact you'll find SCI behind the technical guidance texts of several of our construction peers. We regularly write design guides for respected companies and industry organisations including TATA steel and BCSA.
SCI Members rely on us to deliver numerous high quality benefits, the most valued of which is independent, technical advice available by phone or online – whatever the subject.
Our engineering expertise and consultancy services encompass all areas of development, assessment and specification of your product providing clients with support during all phases of the research, technical and commercial elements of the product lifecycle.
