Steel yourselves

    Well how about a design review and considering the use of precast concrete instead. Sure there is rebar, but nothing close to the same amount of steel. Then there are the other spinoff advantages, such as thermal mass, fire protection etc. But God forbid anyone should show any proactive initiative. Steel is on the drawings so steel it will be, let's just spend time seeing how we can lumber the client with the extra costs. What is so special about a steel structure that the UK opts for it so much? Innovative thinking? What a joke.
