FF Journal’s March issue brings us an in-depth look at how structural steel is at the core of eco-friendly building projects. The structural steel market is poised to play a significant role in adopting a new project delivery model. The article examines how changing the traditional steel supply chain model would help advance the industry into a more efficient and greener one.

Green building activity is projected to grow over the next three years. The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program and more recently, the Environment Product Declaration (EPD) certification program support design standards for building projects with eco-friendly goals.

Mahesh Ramanujam, U.S. Green Building Council President and CEO, comments, “With more and more people demanding and expecting healthier places to live and work, more and more leaders around the globe are committing to green building, which is now a trillion-dollar industry.”
