What’s happening in the steel industry and how will it affect your metal construction bids and contracts?
This burning question and more will be answered today during METALCONLive! Register now for your virtual seat and join us at 1:00 PM for this robust conversation.
Steel prices have been on a roller coaster, with high demand from China and COVID-related supply chain disruptions in Brazil leading to a spike in raw material costs. But many are predicting a steel glut in the 3rd quarter and a decline in construction supplies costs. What’s this all mean for how you should bid on projects in the near term? Hosts Frank A. Stasiowski, FAIA, METALCON Co-Founder and CEO in partnership with the Metal Construction Association, and Rob Haddock, CEO and Founder of S-5! Metal Roof Innovations will be joined by two industry pros who will provide some clarity, share some exciting new developments, and give us some business intelligence for “spinning steel into gold.”
