Managing a project carries a lot of responsibilities. You must ensure targets are met, quality is to a high standard, and the customer is happy with the end result. The materials you choose to use on the project will have a direct effect on these factors.

In this blog, we look at why you should consider using steel construction for your project.

When looking at a range of framing materials, structural steel is far more cost-effective than others. It brings greater value to a project because the initial cost is reasonable and because of the nature of the material, it reduces costs in other areas too, such as façade systems.

Rapidly Erected

As structural steel is fabricated offsite, other parts of the project can take place during this time, such as site preparation and foundation work. Once the structural steel is brought to site, it is super easy and quick to erect, thus speeding up the whole project schedule.

Increased Floor Space

As structural steel is both lightweight and strong, it has the capability to span over longer distances than other construction materials. It also doesn’t require any columns, therefore creating an open plan floor space.

Ease of Design

As structural steel is produced to exact tolerances and strength levels, when combined with a well thought out design approach, the design process can be made incredibly simple.

Enhanced Productivity

Structural steel uses advanced technologies to improve the design and construction stages. Computer-aided manufacturing and BIM (building information modelling) are just some of the systems used. These advanced technologies have been proven to reduce or completely eliminate errors, lower project costs and also improve safety.

High Quality

As mentioned previously, because structural steel is fabricated offsite, under controlled conditions, the company producing it can ensure that it is to a high standard. By doing this, it can also reduce the number of costly fixes on the job site.
