Steel construction industry representative organisation the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (Saisc) is calling for entries for its Steel Awards 2016, which will take place simultaneously in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town on September 15. The deadline for entries is April 21, however, a 10% early-bird discount is being offered for completed entries that arrive at Saisc on, or before, April 14.
“This year is a very special year for the Steel Awards as we will be celebrating, inter alia, Saisc’s sixtieth year. We expect that the industry will respond positively to this being the sixtieth anniversary of the institute’s existence and we expect more entries than ever,” says Saisc CEO Paolo Trinchero. In spite of challenging times over the last couple of years, he notes that there is no doubt that there are still many projects being done in and around South Africa that prove that the standard of steel construction in the African region is as good as anywhere in the world.
