Technical Resources

To meet our aim of fostering excellence in the design and construction of structural steelwork, SCNZ is always looking for opportunities to make the expertise of our highly qualified technical staff, as well as local and international industry experts, available to our members and others who require technical information and advice on structural steel.


In this section, you will find details of how to:
  • contact our in-house technical desk
  • access our specialist Design Support Service for building specifiers
  • subscribe to the Steel Advisor series of reference articles
  • enjoy the benefits of our Steel Fabricator Certification Scheme (under Compliance)
  • read presentations/conference handouts from industry experts on issues that are relevant to your business.


SCNZ has developed a range of software packages and spreadsheet tools to aid designers with the efficient and economic design of steel-framed buildings and bridges, which are presented in this section.

Access to the various materials varies. Some are available to purchase, others are only available to members and a small number are free to use. Full details are given on each product page.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Michelle Gutierrez-Smith.
