Stålbyggnadskontroll (StBK) is an independent consulting firm specialized in steel structures.

Our services have been adapted to the various needs existing in the steel construction industry and among its Clients. Since we are specialized in steel structures we are able to keep up with developments on the international arena. In some areas within the structural steel technology, such as quality assurance, fatigue design, and rules and specifications, we have taken an active part in developing this technology in Sweden.

Even though our services are limited to steel structures, the assignments may take on widely differing tasks.

Through the years we have come to be part of an extensive network of different specialists in the field. For tasks where our own resources - together with those of the Client - are not sufficient we form a tailored project group with other specialists, as needed in the actual case.
