Why Steel?


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.
Walter Koppelaar, CEO & Chairman, Walters Group Inc.
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.
Paul King, MS, P.Eng., VP Engineering, Rapid-Span Group
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. It gives me peace of mind knowing that when we entrust a project to a Quality Certified CISC Member, we can expect a high level of consistency and quality where safety is paramount.
