On 25-26 October, our Construction team exhibited at the London Build Expo – the largest annual construction exhibition in the UK.
The exhibition took place at Olympia London and featured 9 different summits and various networking opportunities for exhibitors and visitors. We introduced the industry to our brand and promoted our local distribution services, while showcasing a selection of our structural sections.
Lisa Coulson, Marketing Manager Construction, said: “It’s the first time we’ve exhibited here and it was great to talk to so many people across the industry.
“We wanted to raise awareness that British Steel doesn’t just manufacture steel – we also sell through our distribution channels. We’re able to accommodate all sizes of project from local building works to structural developments such as the Shard.”
Graduate Federica Lisa went along to learn as much as she could from a technical perspective. She said: “This has been a great experience for me only a month after I joined the company.
“The seminars, interactions on the stand and networking opportunities allowed me to expand my working connections and my knowledge on building information modelling construction (BIM), sustainability and other innovations.”
Lisa added: “We attended a number of seminars hosted by industry experts, which discussed where the industry is now and where it may be heading in the future.
“London Build successfully brings together suppliers, contractors, engineers and architects. It was brilliant for us to be there and we enjoyed lots of engaging and insightful discussions.
“We’ve booked a stand to exhibit again in 2018 and look forward to meeting with new and existing customers to discuss their project requirements.”
