Stainless steel and sustainable construction
Description

This resource aims to provide architects and other specifiers with an overview of stainless steel and sustainble construction. It decribes properties inherent to stainless steels such as: good corrosion resistance, structural efficiency, durability, low maintenace, lasting beauty and 100% reusability and recylability which lead to sustainable development. Correct grade selection for the intended environment and the use of experienced fabricators is also discussed and found to be highly important. The resource also adresses the future challenges for sustainble stainless steel constrcution with relation to the environmental impact the production of the material has and measures to reduce this.
