Why do many architects use Structural Steel in their projects?
Structural Steel gives any project added design options that you just can’t get with other materials. Because steel has much greater weight bearing strength, you can use fewer vertical supports for the same span and less height of the beam. Steel offers you larger uninterrupted open spaces. Steel beams come in a variety of shapes and sizes and you can easily work long cantilevers (overhanging roofs or floors with no end supports) into your design. You can plan dramatic roof lines that extend far past the exterior walls and longer balconies without support columns below. No other material in use today can offer as many engineering options as steel.
Strength, beauty & design freedom to create endless open spaces
Steel’s slender framing creates buildings with a sense of openness. Its flexibility and malleability inspire architects to pursue and achieve their aims in terms of exploring distinctive shapes and textures. These aesthetic qualities are complemented by steel’s functional characteristics that include its exceptional spanning ability, dimensional stability over time, its acoustic noise dampening abilities, endlessly recyclable and the speed and precision in which it is manufactured and assembled onsite.
Establish your signature look
Steel is a wonderfully expressive construction material that excels where the client brief creates opportunities foR
Lightweight designs which lead to reduced load on foundations and the ability to retrofit floors onto existing buildings
Long-span solutions that take advantage of steel’s incredible stiffness and strength-to-weight ratio
Flexible re-purposed solutions, when our client requires the building or structure to have a flexible layout for future re-purposing.
Architecturally exposed structural steel work that stimulates visually or provides a signature look
