The benefits of choosing steel as the primary component for your upcoming construction project

When it comes to constructing buildings of various sizes and shapes, ranging from small retail units and farm buildings to factories and warehouses, Steelwork Engineering is your go-to supplier for all types of structural steelwork. The use of steel in construction offers a multitude of advantages, and we are here to highlight the four key benefits that this versatile building material can bring to your project:

1. Cost efficiency: Over time, steel has become more affordable, thanks to significant advancements in productivity and the supply chain. This means that customers can now enjoy competitively priced steel products while reaping the benefits of cost savings.

2. Rapid construction: Time is of the essence in construction, as it directly affects efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Steel structures can be erected swiftly, allowing other trades to commence their work on-site much earlier. Compared to concrete framed buildings, the evident savings offered by steel make it a popular choice within the construction industry.

3. Health and safety: Safety is paramount in any construction project. With off-site fabrication of steel components and quick on-site assembly, steel proves to be a secure construction material. This process ensures that safety standards are met, providing peace of mind for all involved.

4. Durability: Steel exhibits exceptional durability, outlasting other building materials as it resists decay and ageing. This longevity significantly delays the need for refurbishment. Moreover, steel framed buildings can be easily adapted and extended, mitigating the costs associated with extensive construction work.

steel educational building construction

Steel construction earns top marks for the design of schools and colleges

Educational buildings made with steel frames from Steelwork Engineering

Steel is the top choice of framing material for multi-story buildings in the UK construction industry. This is due to its reputation for delivering cost-effective, sustainable, and high-quality structures. Steel has become the go-to choice for constructing schools and educational buildings, thanks to its long and proven track record.

The construction of school buildings requires compliance with particular design requirements, such as flexible use of space, spatial planning, acoustics, vibration control, and durability. The requirements vary depending on the type of building. For example, an infant or primary school may follow a standard grid-design of multiple classrooms, while a secondary school or college is likely to be multi-storey. Additionally, high education buildings need to be designed to accommodate staff offices, laboratories, lecture theatres, and even halls of residence.

However, the biggest challenge when constructing schools and educational buildings is speed. Fast construction times are necessary to ensure that the new buildings are completed within an academic year, or in some cases, over the long summer holidays. Speed is crucial to minimise any potential disturbance to the site and to keep disruption to pupils and students to a minimum.

Steel construction offers the ideal solution to such time constraints and has a strong place in the market for all types of educational buildings. Steel construction allows buildings to be constructed into modular elements, designed to be quickly assembled on-site. It also allows for shallower than normal floor construction, which helps aid acoustic performance and reduces vibration.

Steel construction is cost-effective, making it the ideal solution when creating buildings on tight budgets. It offers a wide range of economic benefits for all sizes of projects, from extensions to primary school buildings to brand-new halls of residence and university buildings. Steel construction offers savings in a number of areas, including quicker erection times, flexible and future-proof design, off-site manufacture, and the extension or construction of buildings with existing constrained space.

Steel production – the backbone of modern development

Steel production’s long-lasting impact

The production of steel has had a significant impact on society, from contemporary steel-framed buildings to the cutlery used in households. Steel has been in use for thousands of years, with the production of steel dating back approximately 4000 years ago. The Industrial Revolution, which began in the 18th century, played a pivotal role in the development of modern society and the rapid growth of steel production. Steel offers several benefits over cast iron, including malleability, versatility, and durability. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, steel items were produced in small quantities by local craftsmen. The development of large-scale production methods was a significant aspect of the Industrial Revolution, enabling manufacturers to produce forge-able metal. The Bessemer process, developed in the 1850s, was the first feasible method of large-scale structural steel production.

mezzanine flooring

How can installing mezzanine flooring help you grow your business in 2023?

Steel mezzanine flooring and walkways can offer a range of benefits for businesses operating in industrial premises, warehouses, and factories. These structures can help to optimize the use of space, increase storage capacity, and improve safety and accessibility within the workplace. As such, installing mezzanine flooring has the potential to benefit your business in a number of ways.

The benefits of steel mezzanine flooring

One of the main benefits of installing steel mezzanine flooring is the ability to create additional floor space within an existing building. This can be especially useful in warehouses and factories where there is a need for additional storage or production areas, but there is limited space available at ground level. By building a steel mezzanine, businesses can effectively double the usable floor space within their premises, without having to invest in costly and time-consuming building expansion projects.

In addition to providing extra floor space, steel mezzanine flooring can also help to improve the overall efficiency of a business. For example, by creating dedicated storage areas on a mezzanine level, businesses can free up valuable floor space at ground level for other uses, such as production or assembly. This can help to streamline operations and reduce the time and effort required to access and move goods around the warehouse or factory.

Steel mezzanine flooring can also improve safety and accessibility within the workplace. By creating a dedicated walkway or stairway to access the mezzanine level, businesses can reduce the risk of accidents caused by employees climbing on racking or other unstable structures. This can help to create a safer and more comfortable working environment, which can ultimately lead to increased productivity and employee satisfaction.

In addition to these benefits, steel mezzanine flooring is also a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to expand their operations. These structures are typically much less expensive to install than traditional building expansion projects, and they can be easily reconfigured or relocated as the needs of the business change. This flexibility makes steel mezzanine flooring an attractive option for businesses that may need to adapt to changing market conditions or growth in the future.

Finally, steel mezzanine flooring is a durable and long-lasting solution that requires minimal maintenance. These structures are typically constructed from high-quality steel that is resistant to wear and tear, and they can withstand the rigours of heavy industrial use. As a result, businesses can expect their steel mezzanine flooring to last for many years, making it a wise investment in the long-term.
