Objectives & Rationale
<p style="margin:2px !important;">Structural steel is considered the ideal choice for constructing buildings by contractors, architects, designers and engineers. It offers benefits for characteristics such as durability, strength and temperature resistance. Building structures must be designed to withstand the weight, loads and environmental pressures that are placed on them and so the safety and durability of buildings and structures must be a vital consideration at all times.</p>
Relevant Documents

A notice of the Standard Specification for High-Strength Low-Alloy Columbium-Vanadium Structural Steel will appear in The Jamaica Gazette Supplement - Proclamations, Rules and Regulations. The document will appear as a Jamaican Standard Specification, with mandatory status, and will be available for sale.
