On November 14, ArcelorMittal participated in the first Polish Steel Day, organised as part of the “Build with steel” initiative managed by the Polish Chamber of Steelwork and Partners at the Warsaw Sheraton hotel – an event dedicated to investors, architects, designers and general contractors to promote steel in the construction market.
The Steel Day consisted of talks by specialists from production, galvanising and design companies, and lectures given by well-known architects and representatives of industry associations. Different topics were discussed, such as: new technologies in the galvanising industry, modern steel and composite bridges and construction of the world’s largest mobile structure – the Chernobyl sarcophagus (made of ArcelorMittal steel).
ArcelorMittal was represented in the Technical Committee by Marta Dziarnowska, International Steel Promotion Director at ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products and Wojciech Ochojski, Technical Advisor at ArcelorMittal Commercial Long Poland sp. z o.o.
Two ArcelorMittal speeches were given by:
As construction was the focus of the event, Steligence® was in the spotlight with a mini stand displaying a video and a roll-up, as an introduction to this concept.
Steligence® is ArcelorMittal’s radical new concept for the use of steel in construction, which will facilitate the next generation of high performance buildings and construction techniques and create a more sustainable life-cycle for buildings.
The Steligence® concept is enabled by the latest development in steel solutions, such as building columns, castellated beams, composite slim-floor beams, additive floors, architectural panels, profile claddings, cassette systems, and many others.

More about Steligence®
Steligence® proposes a new approach to construction which considers buildings holistically, almost as ‘living entities’. As such, this new science-based methodology proposes the need for more dialogue between various specialist architectural and engineering disciplines, recognizing not only specialist expertise, but also the positive impact of enhanced co-operation between experts.
The concept has the potential to resolve the competing demands of creativity, flexibility, sustainability and economics. Built into the Steligence® approach is a broad range of steel products for construction which individually add value, but together represent a compelling portfolio.
Lastly, the Steligence® concept has the potential to drive significant architectural and sustainability benefits.
The BUILD WITH STEEL Initiative was developed in cooperation with some of the most important steel marker companies in Poland. BUILD WITH STEEL is the answer to the industry’s expectations for increasing the use of steel in the building industry. Steel as a material characterised by great flexibility and durability, deserves proper promotion.
The BUILD WITH STEEL Initiative is addressed to all key players on the construction market including students and graduates of technical universities, designers, architects, as well as investors and general contractors.
