The Environmental Case for Steel

The Department of Environment Transport and the Regions (DETR) has promised to firm up on its draft guidance on sustainable construction, although it does not look likely to be out before autumn 1999. It will be interesting to see the definition of sustainability which they opt for. In the meantime, the construction industry is developing methods of judging between different materials and building methods, sometimes with results which may challenge accepted prejudices.
