Structural steel is one of the most flexible and versatile building materials on earth. Engineers have used structural steel to accomplish feats thought impossible, building massive skyscrapers and expansive bridges that have remained for hundreds of years.
The shorter construction timeline afforded by a steel building saves on the cost of labor, noise abatement efforts and equipment rental.
You can save money on foundation design and installation because a steel building requires a less substantial foundation with a smaller footprint than structures made of concrete, bricks and mortar or wood.
Faster frame-up times allow trades to move in quickly to install utilities and perform interior finish-out.
A shortened construction time-line decreases the chances of jobsite accidents and injuries is a bonus.
