Promote and expand participation of steel construction in the local market

About us

Over time, the increasing use of steel in construction continues to highlight the importance of steel products for innovation and development in the construction market around the world. Consequently, steelmakers seek to follow the evolution of this segment, promoting new products and solutions, through research, to meet the most challenging projects and demands. In Brazil, this reality is no different. However, we still find several opportunities for improvement that do not exploit the synergies between the various segments involved, and do not take advantage of the potential benefits to users and steel producers.

From the beginning, it was observed the need of the steel segment in civil construction to have a relationship between producers to generate conditions to fund studies and experiments aimed at strengthening the productive process of the entire sector. However, few companies were able to afford such initiatives and with experience to create long-term partnerships.

In 1997, in an attempt to overcome these inconveniences, Cosipa and Usiminas started some work together, aiming at the development of the steel construction market. And in 1999, the GSCM - Grupo Siderúrgico da Construção Metálica (Steel Group of Metallic Construction) was created, consisting of CSN, CST, Usiminas, Cosipa, and later, also by Açominas.

The decision to create CBCA - Centro Brasileiro da Construção em Aço (Brazilian Center for Steel Construction in Brazil) was based on the studies carried out by the founders of the GSCM, and on the experiences of groups from other countries, such as Great Britain, USA and Japan, where entities such as the Steel Construction Institute (SCI), the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the Kozai Club, played a key role in the development and consolidation of steel construction in their respective markets.

CBCA emerged to join the efforts of national organizations that bring together representatives of the local industry, entities and professionals linked to steel construction.

CBCA is not a commercial entity, we manage the Instituto Aço Brasil and we have been offering the best for producers, customers and people since 2002.
