Steel in engineering
The advantages steel offers to the engineering industry have long been recognized by designers, engineers and developers. The versatility of steel offers the freedom to achieve the most ambitious visions. Structural steel is an essential component of stadiums, shopping centers and commercial developments. Steel is ideal for modernization, reconfiguring, extending or adapting with minimal disruption, and without costly redevelopment.
Steel is the leading construction material for sustainability, as it can be recycled endlessly with no detrimental effect on its properties.
Steel structures are durable and require little maintenance, extracting maximum value from the resources invested in the structure and minimizing its whole-life costs. Long span steel sections enable large, open plan, column-free spaces to be created inside buildings, providing flexible areas.
Ouor rigorous quality assurance processes give full traceability at all stages in the supply chain, from steelmaking through fabrication to erection on site.
Steel-framed structures are highly durable and do not age or decay as quickly as other construction materials. Steel’s inherent adaptability and flexibility also means that future changes or extensions – even vertically – can be carried out with minimal disruption and cost.
