This year, REIDsteel celebrated their 100th anniversary of trading. Design office manager John Harrison talks about the challenges of designing in over 140 countries and the benefits to the business.

This presentation looks at the benefits of being a British company when exporting internationally, codes of practice, environmental effects and the clashes between these. 

It then looks at the threats to Britain’s export business and finishes on a hopeful note with the speaker’s belief in our collective future. The talk will be useful to anyone looking to do more business outside of Europe.

Britain has long been at the forefront of civil and structural engineering around the world. Bridges built by Britain in the second world war can still be found in many countries and this little island continues to punch well above our weight in every field of engineering.

REIDsteel have done business in over 140 countries which has entailed working with many different codes and standards and working with every conceivable condition.
