As the steel sector searches for sustainable solutions in the carbon heavy construction industry, it is crucial not to overlook the power of conservation and efficiency. Decisions made early in the design process, using quality data, have a major impact on a building’s carbon footprint. In fact, when we use early data to our advantage, steel becomes a much more sustainable building material.

Keeping Qnect’s customers - both current and future - informed is my aim. We’re moving quickly around here with our QuickQnect service as well as our customer on-boarding and support.
In this update, I focus on three items:
- Qnect's blog
- NASCC: The Steel Conference // Booth #1223
- The Qnect User Meeting
I spent fifteen amazing years in New York during a very amazing time, 1985-2000. During that time, I didn’t think about steel all the time like I do now. Then, I was bothered by the construction noise and the staging and street blocking, not paying attention to the incredible feats of engineering and logistics surrounding me. I would say this level of understanding is typical of most of the city’s 8 million residents.
Jump forward to today, 19 years later, and I find myself in NYC about once a month for Qnect. I see the city in a completely different light. Anyone with this much history of the city can see how the skyline today seems to be punctuated with new towers of gleaming steel and glass. The change marches on as does my appreciation for all that it takes to make these amazing structures go up and become living symbols of NYC.
