There is evidence in the field and through third party case studies and comparative cost studies that steel building systems offer significant cost benefits over competitive building materials when the total cost of construction is considered.
Steel is a non-combustible material and consequently does not burn, provide an ignition source or add fuel load that would enable a fire to spread or grow into a catastrophic event.
The “CISC Steel Structures Certification” is a market differentiator in a crowded field of competitors. The certification provides our clients with the comfort of third party validation, certifying that we are knowledgeable and experienced in the building of structures and that we follow the relevant codes and standards in the execution of our work.
As a CISC certified bridge fabricator, it sets us apart as specialists with the in-depth knowledge, experience and equipment required to fabricate steel bridges to the relevant codes and standards. Our customers are delighted the CISC has taken the lead in creating a world-class certification programme specific to the fabrication of steel bridges in Canada. It provides them the confidence they demand that their bridges will be fabricated by experts to the highest quality standards.
I appreciate the effort that CISC takes to vet and certify high quality Members. When we put out a tender to the market, we specify the companies that are CISC certified when we can.
