  Why You Should Consider Steel As a Building Material
Building with steel is becoming an increasingly popular phenomenon as more and more companies and governments discover the advantages of steel buildings. Technically, steel is an alloy of iron and carbon and is among the most versatile construction materials available. A steel structure offers benefits that wood or concrete structures don't, including simple construction processes and the opportunity to use recycled materials for a lessened ecological impact.

Steel is durable, flexible and strong, which makes it an ideal choice for buildings of all shapes and sizes. Steel was once used only for large storage-type buildings or aircraft hangars, and while it is quite useful for larger structures, it is now used for all different types of buildings. Everything from churches to retail stores to sports arenas to toll booths use steel as the primary construction material. And with developments in the industry in terms of outer finishes and facades, a steel building no longer has to resemble a metal barn. Steel is still a great choice for buildings that have a lot of clearspan space, meaning the roof is supported by bordering walls and framework, not internal columns, but that is no longer the only option.

Prefab steel buildings can be assembled faster than traditional buildings, which saves labour costs and enables the business to be up and running sooner. Steel is durable, and is easily protected from rust, corrosion, and other kinds of deterioration by applying corrosion-resistant coatings. This reduces repairs costs over time.

One of the world's most commonly recycled materials, steel buildings can be recycled into other products after their life cycle has ended. When a steel building is being built, the construction site is much cleaner than a traditional site, with noise, dust and dampness being greatly reduced. The strength of steel means that more windows can be put on the exterior of the building. As a result, the natural light not only reduces energy consumption, but makes for a more enjoyable work environment for those inside.

The ability to build an entire building with reused materials goes a long way toward the conservation and sustainability that so many people talk about these days. The average person may not think of steel as environmentally friendly, but when used in buildings, its ability to be recycled, reduced energy use, clean construction process and longer life span mean that steel as a building material means less environmental impact and increased conservation.

The durability and flexibility of steel also serve to make future steel buildings more resistant to weather disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes and earthquakes. We are all too familiar with the aftermath of disasters in areas of the world where buildings are constructed with weaker materials, and the human and financial damage that can result. Many times, it's the old, traditionally built buildings crumbling and falling to the ground that multiplies the human casualty rate. Steel structures can save lives that otherwise would be lost due to collapse.

With future steel buildings, trust the experts with 30 years experience in satisfying customers large and small.
