Steel Bridge Group Membership

Membership of the Steel Bridge Group
The SBG comprises both full and corresponding Members. Full Members of the SBG are experts willing to contribute to the activities of the group by typically meeting twice a year to prioritise activities and exchange information whilst also advancing SBG projects throughout the year. Corresponding Members are kept up-to-date with SBG activities and are invited to raise technical issues and to review and challenge the guidance developed by the SBG.

“The Steel Bridge Group was formed to address high-importance issues in the steel bridge industry with a view to making the specification of steel bridges as efficient, economic and sustainable as possible. We continue to be committed to addressing the most relevant challenges which, of course, means we must first identify what these are. Whilst we endeavour to do this through our membership, we are always delighted to receive your suggestions for areas we should be focussing on.

If you wish to join the Steel Bridge Group and believe you would make an active contribution to its objectives then please can I encourage you to write to the secretary with a short statement on what you would contribute and please include a CV highlighting your experience with steel bridges.”
