British Standards Institute (BSI), Hemel Hempstead. Sir John Wolfe Barry – the man who designed Londons Tower Bridge – instigated the Council of the Institution of Civil Engineers to form a committee to consider standardizing iron and steel sections on 22 January 1901.

Subsequently, on 26 April 1901, the first meeting of the Engineering Standards Committee took place. As a result, the variety of sizes of structural steel sections was reduced from 175 to 113 and standardization was underway.

As a result of these strategic moves, and through more than a century of growth, BSI Group now delivers a comprehensive business services portfolio to clients, helping them raise their performance and enhance their competitiveness worldwide.
