Colloquium: Multi-Storey Steel Buildings - a New Generation. The Current Scene

Structural steel frames have seen a major resurgence in the early 1980s, with a major shift in the market share of multistorey commercial buildings from in situ RC frames to composite steel frames. There remain many building types where in situ formed reinforced concrete will continue to be the appropriate solution. However, this paper concentrates on the multistorey buildings of the 1980s, where requirements of intense servicing within false ceiling zones in large open areas has created the opportunity for structural steel to flourish.
