steel canopies

Maximise outdoor areas with a steel canopy

Steel canopies designed and installed by Steelwork Engineering

As a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs have been forced to close. Although no plans are yet in place for them to re-open, many are working hard to find ways to ensure their customers are able to adhere with social distancing measures when the time comes. Outdoor seating areas are likely to play a bit part in this and if your pub, bar or cafe has an outdoor space, the chances are that you’ll want to make maximum use of the potential it could offer. Of course our notoriously unpredictable climate could hinder these plans and with this in mind, installing an outdoor canopy could provide the ideal solution.

In addition, making the best use of outdoor areas is also likely to become a priority for schools, nurseries and care homes; playing an important part in ensuring social distancing is adhered to.

Here at Steelwork Engineering we have the expertise to design, manufacture and install canopies to meet our client’s exact requirements. Regardless of how large or small you’d like your canopy to be, we’ll create a solution which help you maximise space, keep your customers a safe and beat the elements. Here are few examples of the benefits of installing a canopy:

• Canopies are ideal for commercial properties, providing shade from the sun and protection from rain. The canopies we make can be designed to fit almost any building, in any size and in any location, providing a versatile solution for all requirements.
• Canopies are perfect for hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants, providing extended all-weather seating areas.
• Ideal for installation in nurseries, schools and playgroups, canopies offer a useful way to extend play areas, providing children with the chance to play outside throughout the year.
• Canopies can also prove extremely useful in healthcare settings, providing a protected area for patients, visitors and families to enjoy time outside no matter what the weather’s like.
• The ideal solution for business reception areas and entrances, installing a canopy provides protection for your staff, clients and visitors as they enter and leave your premises.

Keep building project costs under control with prefabricated steel

What are the benefits of prefabricated steel construction?

When compared to traditional reinforced concreted, steel frame construction provides a number of advantages. From reduced costs and increased sustainability through to flexibility and enhanced health and safety, increasing numbers of building projects are now turning to prefabricated steel construction.

In comparison to reinforced concrete, steel construction using a prefabricated steel frame can cut the costs of a building project by as much as 3%. Choosing prefabricated steel makes the most of the advantages of off-site construction; helping to speed up construction. Prefabricated steel buildings offer many benefits including:

  • Using prefabricated steel can significantly reduce construction times

  • Reduce construction times mean less time spent by fewer people on-site

  • Other trades are able to access the construction site earlier

  • Better use can be made of the construction site

  • Steel resists corrosion and offers increased fire protection

  • Services are easier to integrate

  • Steel is an extremely durable form of construction material, offering the capability to include large, unsupported spans

  • Flexibility is also improved thanks to the ability to create larger open spaces which can be divided up at a later date

  • Foundation costs are reduced thanks to steel’s superb strength to weight ratio

  • Steel framed buildings can be easily adapted during the construction process; for example if the client wants to alter their plans

We specialise in the design, manufacture and construction of prefabricated steel buildings

Here at Steelwork Engineering we have decades of experience in the design, manufacture and construction of prefabricated steel buildings.

Steel your business for change

Steel building construction – the affordable way to expand your business premises

The current marketplace is incredibly challenging and although many businesses are finding things very tough, others are having to cope with rapid expansion. Structural steel buildings offer a cost-effective, efficient way to create the additional space you might need, providing a robust, long-term solution to increasing the size of your business premises.

Here at Steelwork Engineering we are experts in the design, manufacture and construction of all types of structural steelwork for buildings, from small retail units and agricultural buildings, through to large industrial units, factories and warehouses.

We will use our expertise to help you plan and create the extra space you need, often at a significantly lower cost than traditional bricks-and-mortar building. Here are just a few examples of the benefits of extending your business premises with a steel framed building:

  • The components required to build a steel framed building are designed and manufactured off-site. This means that construction times are significantly reduced, helping to slash the overall cost of the project.
  • Steel is incredibly versatile and thanks to it’s unbeatable strength-to-weight ratio, can be used to create buildings with large, open-span spaces.
  • Steel buildings are also adaptable and easy to extend or alter at a later date, providing a versatile, ‘future-proof’ option.

steel stairs and handrails

Robust steel handrails to provide a helping hand

Ensure staff and customer safety with our bespoke steel handrails

Here at Steelwork Engineering we design and manufacture a wide range of staircases and access products which will allow you to make the most of the space you have by accessing different floors in your building, or to provide escape routes and storage areas.

Steel handrails are crucial to the design of the majority of staircases, mezzanine floors and access ladders and with this in mind, we thought we’d explore the benefits of steel handrails.

Handrails must, by their very nature, be strong and durable enough to safely support people whilst they move up and down stairs or use walkways and ladders. A lightweight material, or no handrail at all simply won’t do the job, so a strong handrail is an important way to help reduce the risk of serious falls. Structural steel is the ideal material for handrails because it is strong, versatile and easy to maintain.

Steel offers a robust and durable option

When it comes to designing a staircase or access ladder it’s important to use a material that is as strong as possible. Stairs tend to incur a high level of footfall and by using a strong material such as steel; the staircase will have a greater tensile strength. In addition, because structural steel is weatherproof, it is the ideal choice for external stairs and fire escapes etc.

Steel handrails to suit all budgets and requirements

In comparison to other materials, structural steel rails offer a relatively cost effective option. Steel doesn’t need to be painted or varnished and because it won’t rust or corrode, maintenance and repair costs are non-existent or minimal. Steel will retain its good looks no matter how often it is used, helping you save time and money.

Strength and good looks combined

Not only is structural steel incredibly strong, it also looks great, helping to explain why it is such a popular material with architects and designers. Steel staircases and handrails can be designed to suit buildings of all shapes and sizes, offer a sleek, contemporary look in homes and business premises.

Steel buildings designed to resist the elements

Protect your business from the weather with a steel building designed and installed by Steelwork Engineering

Thanks to storms Ciara and Dennis the weather has been big news over the last couple of weeks, with stories of flooding and high winds.

Here at Steelwork Engineering we design, manufacture and build steel buildings which are designed to provide robust, versatile and weather resistant solutions for businesses of all sizes.

Why build with steel?

Steel offers the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, making it the ideal choice for robust construction. However, just because a building is made of steel doesn’t mean that it’s able to cope with gale force winds. The quality of the steel is incredibly important as it determines the building’s ability withstand damaging weather conditions.

Steel earns its place in the circular economy

The concept of a circular economy is simple: resources are used for as long as possible to extract maximum value, before materials and products are recovered and regenerated to be used once again.

So where does steel construction fit in? Steel has unparalleled circular economy credentials and because it is has long been valued as a material which is strong, durable, versatile and recyclable, it is unique.

The concept of a circular economy promotes products with long lives. Rather than investing in cheap, disposable products, the circular economy maintains products at their highest value and utility for as long as is possible. This means that the longer a product lasts then the fewer raw materials will be required, leading to a reduction in waste. Not only are steel construction products intrinsically durable and will last a very long time, they can also be successfully reused once their first life is over.

Steel is recyclable, flexible and versatile

Recyclability is a key component of a circular economy and steel is 100% recyclable and is currently the most recycled industrial material on the planet. Steel can be recycled without loss of quality and although all new steel could be made from recycled steel, this isn’t possible due to insufficient supplies of scrap.

Another important component of a circular economy is a reduction in the amount of materials required. Steel is lightweight but very strong which means that significantly fewer materials are required to construct steel framed buildings. Flexibility and adaptability are also essential; because steel fabricated buildings can be constructed to provide flexibility through designs created to allow for easy rearrangement of internal layout, this further confirms steel’s place in the circular economy.
