Driven by a commitment to continuously develop best practices and cutting-edge technologies, SAISC empowers its members to excel in their respective fields.

A highlight in the SAISC’s calendar is the renowned Steel Awards, an annual gala event that celebrates exceptional projects showcasing pioneering innovation, creative design, and the courage to overcome challenges.
