What are the Stakes?

Gearing Up

In recent years, many industries have adopted new and exciting technologies to boost productivity and profitability, and construction is no exception. From wearable technology to drones, remote-controlled loaders and advanced software helping streamline massive amounts of data, these modern-day marvels are making the construction process more efficient, less wasteful and a lot safer. And as structures from housing to office towers must be erected as quickly and effectively as possible, advances in construction-related technology continue to grow rapidly.

Advocating HSS

Since it was formed almost one hundred years ago, the Steel Tube Institute (STI) has evolved to meet the needs of industry. It was created in 1930 when several manufacturers came together to educate about the many advantages of using steel tubing, and STI continues to endorse this well-known construction material. It also advocates best practices and safety initiatives specific to steel tube producers.
