Build sustainable, low lifecycle cost bridges that last a lifetime   
Join us and learn how to use SSAB Weathering steel in bridge construction that has a low lifecycle cost and high sustainability profile. You'll learn what it is, when to use it, and what benefits customers have gained. Sami Niemelä from design firm WSP will also be showcasing his award-winning bridge in the forests of Finland. 

The webinar will help answer these questions:
  • What are the right conditions for building bridges in SSAB Weathering steel?
  • How can weathering steel help to reduce bridge maintenance and associated costs? 
  • How can I lower both the economic and environmental costs of bridge construction?
  • Why should I use high-strength weathering steel?
  • What have other bridge construction companies done?
  • Which design and technical guidelines are available?

We hope you'll join us!
