Steel quality bid launched

SIR MICHAEL Latham has launched a scheme to help contractors check the quality and performance claims of steel manufacturers.

The Light Gauge Accreditation, run by the Steel Construction Institute and Cold Rolled Sections Association, will provide independent third party advice on manufacturers' claims.

Initially, the scheme will cover purlins, before being expanded to products and systems, including framing, floor decks and cladding.

Sir Michael said: 'This initiative is another decisive step in giving added confidence and sense of security to all involved in the construction process.'
