The European Steel Design Awards are given by ECCS every two years to encourage the creative and outstanding use of steel in architecture and construction. Outstanding design in steel construction emphasizes the many advantages of steel in construction, production, economy and architecture.
The aim of ECCS is to promote the use of steelwork in the construction sector by the development of standards and promotional information. It also helps to influence decision makers through the management of working committees, publications, conferences, and by active representation on European and International Committees dealing with standardisation, research and development and education.
ECCS is the only European organization which brings together the Steel Industry, the Fabrication and Contracting specialists, and the Academic world through an international network of construction representatives, steel producers, and technical centres.
