Nominate a Project for Steel Awards 2022

The SAISC group has an established credibility in the market, born from a 60+ year reputation as the custodian of steel construction technical knowledge, and its position as voice of the steel construction industry. Steel Awards (in its 39th year in 2022) is seen as a mark of prestige, and a peer / built environment celebration of excellence.

Steel Awards 2022 includes a Pan-African promotional campaign, with both digital (online) and physical (in person) events. Our main objective is to showcase excellence in the use of steel, by shining a spotlight on your projects and the people who made them possible!

The final in person awards event will take place in October 2022, as a red carpet film premier (think Hollywood/ Cannes Film Festival) – followed by a cocktail/ networking function at a luxury venue. Keep an eye on this page for details!
