A steel structure is 30-60% lighter than a similar one made from concrete. As a result, loads on the foundation are considerably lower. This means: Construction of a building using steel-based structure requires less materials for its foundation than a building made of concrete.
DID YOU KNOW
ADVANTAGES OF MULTI-STOREY STEEL BUILDINGS
Quality and Speed:- Manufactured at plants using prefabrication methods thus involving high precision machinery. Speed -High speed especially during installation. Strength and Safety – Assembly procedure for steel structures is clear and strictly controlled. Economic Efficiency – Few Casual Workers, Very Low wastage, savings on Materials, Loads on a foundation are considerably lower, requiring less materials. Flexibility – Steel, by nature, is a flexible material that can withstand high loads. Steel’s versatility allows architects to bring bold ideas to life: modify a building in the process of construction and efficiently integrate utilities.
