Abstract [en]

The Swedish Institute of Steel Construction was founded in 1969 and marks the organization of steel-building incorporating research and actively informing its members on development in the field. This paper argues that the professionalization process of the steel-building industry was dependent on the ideal to be able to build tall buildings. The advantages of building in steel are foremost time efficiency related to production and this is in turn was dependent on three different construction improvements. First, solutions for fireproofing steel constructions, such as vermiculite; the introduction of high-strength bolts; and the air impact wrench, which entered the market in the 1950s. In addition, the steel building industry organized itself using the Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute as a model. CBI had been very successful in organizing and developing concrete building technologies through research and this seems to have been an essential component of developing the steel-building field.
