Steel construction advocacy groups merge
The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction has reached an agreement with the Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute to merge their organizations under the CISC name. The CISC is an organization that advocates for the use of sheet steel in construction projects, while the CSSBI advocates for the use of structural steel, steel bridge, steel plate and miscellaneous steel construction. The sheet steel construction industry includes commercial and residential steel roofing, structural roof deck and composite floor deck, steel siding and cladding, steel studs and joists, and steel building systems.
“The CISC is looking forward to expanding the voice and strength of Canada's steel construction industry with the addition of this very important sector,” said Todd Collister, chairman of the CISC. “This further builds on the CISC's efforts to advance the use and benefits of steel construction, showcase steel's design and environmental advantages and to advocate for the Canadian steel construction supply chain, their employees, and their families.”
