ArcelorMittal, one of the largest steel manufacturers in the world has launched Constructalia, a website targeted to serve as the leading steel reference website for architects, engineers and building owners.
In an email statement, ArcelorMittal said users can take advantage of free pre-design tools to support engineers and architects in the blueprint and calculation of their projects. These programs cover various steel design aspects and composite structures with different standards, as well as special solutions in accordance with the European Design codes – the Eurocodes.
Via constructalia.arcelormittal.com, ArcelorMittal provides free BIM objects and computer-aided design (CAD) files of its product range in the universal dwg and dfx formats, so they can be easily incorporated into architectural and structural designs already at the early project stages.
In terms of environmental sustainability, the website also provides environmental product declarations for the many products and solutions offered by ArcelorMittal.
Visitors can explore the site by application – for example, roofing – by product name, or by using a free text search. There’s also a Google map showing the location of every project included in the case study gallery. Local business contacts are also included, enabling visitors to constructalia.arcelormittal.com to get in touch with experienced steel professionals.
Commenting on the launch, Marta Dziarnowska, digitalisation in construction director at ArcelorMittal, said “The launch of our new website is the culmination of a lot of hard work to ensure that users have the best possible experience when visiting constructalia.arcelormittal.com. As one of the leading steel companies in the construction sector, we set out to ensure that the many different decision-makers involved in major construction projects can find the information and products they need via the website – I hope they agree that we have achieved our goal in this respect”.
The company said the website will be in English. It projects to ship the site in French, German, Italian, Polish, and Spanish as soon as practicable.
