Steel Design Magazine

Construction is an evolving industry. New techniques and materials are continually being developed to improve efficiency, decrease cost, increase safety, minimize environmental impact and keep up with client demands. Steel is a durable, versatile and constantly advancing material that is helping to meet the changing needs of the building industry.

ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company.

Steel Design, a magazine produced by ArcelorMittal Dofasco, shares latest developments in steel construction and manufacturing. From commercial to residential to industrial applications, Steel Design showcases the diversity, sustainability and versatility of steel. As the writer for Steel Design, I work with Banko Creative Studio and AMD to highlight recent steel design and engineering projects from across Canada.

A hangar that can park up to five airplanes at a time, metal roofs that replicate the look of cedar or slate shingles, a passive house that reduces annual energy consumption by 80 per cent, and a Northern-Ontario art centre clad in Dofasco’s Indaten weathered steel are just some of the articles in Steel Design that showcase the potential of steel.

Construction and manufacturing are evolving. Steel Design provides practical, technical, timely, useful information to architects, designers, engineers, developers and contractors across Canada.
