THE VERSATILITY OF STEEL STRUCTURES


Steel structure is a construction option with many advantages. Of course, experience and expertise of the designers, fabricators and installers are important. The contractor has to coordinate well to ensure the best fabrication and installation services are provided while placing a high premium on safety and quality.


MATCHING THE CLIENT’S NEEDS

Each client’s requirement is unique. The beauty of steel rests in its versatility in terms of structural limitations. While other materials such as wood and concrete offer their own unique benefits to a project, they are bound by numerous limitations due to material properties. While concrete is very strong, it may not be the best for sustained load bearing use in certain applications.


The weight and strength of materials provide limitations and utilizing steel frame construction can mean the difference between building a limited structure and one that perfectly meets the client’s needs.


SEEKING FUNCTION-AESTHETIC-COST BALANCE



The aesthetic and practical value of a structure revolves around its design and the budget required to do so. Architects and designers looking to create a unique, visually pleasing building will quickly run into issues concerning the overall cost.


Small visual improvements can be expensive. The beauty of steel again relies on its rigidity and ability to provide impressive weight thresholds. The stronger your building material is, the more design features you can take advantage of. More strength can also equate to less material required, giving designers and steel erectors alike the freedom to do more with less.


STEEL STRUCTURE IS NOT ONLY FOR WORKSHOPS AND WAREHOUSES

While classical thought dictates that steel is best saved for workshops and warehouses, modern innovations have helped us to create versatile, durable, beautiful structures for nearly any need. Structural designers, fabricators and installers work to excel in providing top-notch services in many industries, including:



- Automotive. From mechanic buildings to showrooms and welding shops, anything you need for vehicles can be constructed quickly and affordably.

- Agriculture. Barns, stables, and dairies, steel structures are transforming the landscape of our farms.

- Personal storage. Whether you need a place to store your vehicle or maybe a store yard, steel provides a solid answer for housing larger items.

- Food services. If you can think of a food establishment, we can think of an example of that place that is built around steel.

- Aviation. Where would we be without massive steel hangars and terminals that rely on the strength of steel?

- Commercial. From the gas station to the mall, modern steel holds a place for much of our country’s commerce.

- Offices. Any industry that requires large office spaces can benefit from the versatility of steel.

- Industrial. Yards and assembly plants alike can benefit from durability and customisation that steel can offer.



Combining the affordable costs, environmental responsibility, and versatility of steel structure and design make steel a major player in the future construction market.



Seek the right capabilities, experience, and expertise to get your steel structure delivered in the best way, at high quality in a safe, efficient manner.
