Czech Constructional Steelwork Association (CCSA), which brings together more than 50 bodies – metal manufacturers, steel traders, construction companies and those firms engaged in joining, welding and the cutting of steel structures, in surface protection, as well as companies specialising in handling technology, assembly and software etc.
Without a doubt, steel has entered the 21st century as one of the most important and versatile practical building materials. Steel is manufactured and used across a wide product and quality spectrum. It is the extraordinary, persistent and innate ability of steel to be innovative, as expressed by its inexhaustible richness in potential to develop products, technologies or commercial services, that enables it not only to maintain its position as one of the most essential of materials, but also to push ahead into new spheres of serviceability. Just how this potential is developed is where our kind of organisation must enter the frame. We are already making great efforts using various means and at different levels.
Since the CCSA was founded, it has been an organisation whose purpose is to develop the scope of steel construction. Its activities contribute to architects, planners, investors, developers, engineers and all interested parties in the field, each being better informed. Using appropriate methods we endeavour to contribute to the growth of the market in steel construction, achieving a consensus in outlook regarding Eurocodes and norms, products and technology, educational and training methods, the capability of businesses, the economic advantages of steel construction, useful characteristics and design. We monitor standards in design engineering and the execution of steel construction projects and we initiate and co-operate in the delivery of measures to improve quality. We resolve specific problems posed to us by association members which then facilitates their ability to do better business. Also significant are our activities in stressing the advantages of steel constructions, advertising and popularising structures constructed from steel, and last but not least, stressing the recyclable qualities of steel.
We welcome not only challenging suggestions on how to improve the associations’ activities, but first and foremost we welcome parties interested in active membership. A broad and powerful membership raises the association’s prestige, which then becomes more influential in negotiations at all levels, and contributes to the more effective implementation of all the aforementioned aims and visions.
