steel fabrication

The advantages of using steel.

Why choose steel?

In recent years steel has rapidly become the building material of choice for a whole range of construction projects, from industrial units through to high-rise buildings. The advantages which steel offers to the construction industry are widely recognised by architects and building contractors alike. So with this in mind, here are some of the benefits, steel could bring to your next project;

  • Cost

Steel being cost effective is one of the major advantages it has over other traditional building materials. 

Studies have shown that in the construction of a typical city centre office building, choosing to build using steel frame instead of more traditional building materials is 12% cheaper than using concrete.

  • Efficiency 

Steel has a fantastic strength to weight ratio, that is unmatched by almost any other traditional building material. When creating an efficient steel design you maximise the high strength to weight ratio. Which will in turn provide more versatile, larger column free internal spaces.

  • Fast construction times

Unlike traditional materials steel offers the fastest on-site start. This plus an earlier payback on your investment, providing possible time-related savings which can equate to up to 5% of the overall value of the project.

  • Safety

 Accurate fabrication work is carried out off site, therefore steel is safer to use than other materials when building for construction trams. Because of its efficiency steel is only brought onto a site as and when it is required, reducing the risk of accidents and the need for on-site storage. 

  • Sustainability

99% of constructional steel used in the UK has either been reused or recycled, steel can be used numerous times without loss of quality, ensuring sustainability for the future. This proves how much better for the environment steel is compared to other materials.

steel commercial buildings

Steel commercial buildings

Steel buildings designed for the commercial sector

Steel is the ideal building material for creating commercial buildings, from shops and warehouses, through to showrooms and workshops. Here at Steelwork Engineering we have many years of experience of working with the commercial sector, providing cost-effective building solutions.

Why choose steel?

Choosing to build a commercial building from steel offers a wide range of benefits, not least in terms of construction costs. Steel buildings are quick to build and because all components are made-to-measure off-site, significant savings can be made during the construction phase of a project.

Steel is also incredibly versatile and offers the opportunity to create flexible designs which are easily adapted or extended at a later date. This helps to ensure that steel buildings provide a long-term solution, allowing your business to grow and expand over time.

We have the expertise to design, manufacture and construct a steel building to meet your exact requirements. Whether you are considering a major multi-storey construction project or have a simple agricultural building in mind, using our steel building design and build service can help you save time and money.

Steel – the backbone of industrial economies

Iron and steel has been in production for hundreds of years. From its humble beginnings as a cottage industry, steel now forms the backbone of modern, industrial economies. It is now almost impossible to visualise a world without steel and whether it is used in engines or construction, it plays a part in almost everything we use and make.

Versatility and strength

As regular readers of our blog will know, steel offers unparalleled strength and versatility. The strength-to-weight ratio of steel and its ability to be recycled into new products has helped to make steel the ultimate future-proof product and one that is already playing a crucial role in the circular economy’s development.

Structural steel is so strong because it is an alloy of iron and other material which has had the majority of carbon extracted. Steel has to be strong and as such is available in a wide range of different grades, each of which has its own specific chemical composition and properties, meeting the requirements of different applications.

These days steel is made using two major processes: basic oxygen steel making and electric arc furnace manufacturing. Converters (modern furnaces) have the capability to take up to 350 tonnes of iron ore, coking coal and steel scrap before converting it into steel in just 15 minutes. Electric arc furnaces pass a powerful electric current through cold scrap metal and modern electric arc furnaces having the capability to make up to 150 tonnes of steel at a time.

Molten steel has to be allowed to solidify into basic shapes – slabs, billets or blooms – before it is rolled or formed into finished products. Continuous casting machines are used to draw steel downwards from a mould where it can be automatically cut into the lengths required. To change the shape of a material with the strength of steel, the thickness has to be reduced; resulting in flat or long products.

Although steel has been in production for many hundreds of years, the production process  still continues to develop and evolve in an effort to reduce costs and minimise any impact upon the environment.

Steel products designed, manufactured and installed to meet your specifications

Here at Steelwork Engineering all of the steel work we create is manufactured to the highest standards and to meet CE Marking legislation. This enables us to provide our clients with strong, durable products. If you would like to find out more about the benefits of using structural steel, or to discuss your requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.

 

steel educational building construction

Steel – the cornerstone of building for the education sector

Steel buildings for schools and colleges

Designing buildings for the education sector presents a particular set of challenges and requirements. Careful spatial planning is essential and it’s important to ensure that spaces are as flexible and adaptable as possible. In addition, close attention also needs to paid to durability, acoustics and the control of vibrations.

Steel construction is the ideal technique for creating a wide range of educational buildings and is already widely used to build sports halls, lecture theatres, laboratories, class rooms and university halls of residence. Building educational buildings from steel offers the education sector a range of real benefits including:

  • Fast construction: new buildings are completed quickly within one academic year or, in some cases, within the long summer holiday.
  • Flexibility: the space created is ideal for meeting current demands whilst being adaptable enough to evolve with future requirements.
  • Creative spaces: thanks to steel’s exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, steel construction makes it possible to create large, open spaces without the use of support columns.
  • Durability: steel is incredibly durable and steel framed buildings are easy to maintain and keep clean.
  • Ease of insulation: steel-framed buildings can be designed to provide good acoustic performance which is particularly important for the education sector. In addition, services such as heating, lighting and cooling are easily integrated.

Educational buildings designed and built by Steelwork Engineering

At Steelwork Engineering we have decades of experience in the design and construction of steel buildings, including buildings for the education sector. If you would like to find out more about our services, please get in touch by calling 01535 630100 or email info@steelworkengineering.com

Steel – the sustainable building material of the future

Sustainable steel manufacture and construction from Steelwork Engineering

Here at Steelwork Engineering we often discuss the superior sustainability of steel. With this in mind, we thought we’d explore steel’s sustainability and the benefits offers.

The topic of the environment is rarely out of the news these days; especially when it comes to single use, unsustainable materials such as plastic. Plastic water bottles are an obvious example as although they can be recycled and turned into new bottles, the vast majority still end up in landfill sites whilst also polluting our oceans and rivers. Environmental organisations and increasing numbers of governments are keen to put across the point that by buying products which can only be used once to then be thrown away has a significant, negative impact upon the planet. So what are the benefits of manufacturing, using and reusing a sustainable material such as steel?

Steel is used and not consumed

Steel is almost unique in that it is used rather than consumed. This means that in contrast, other materials or products are fit for a single purpose and when that purpose has been fulfilled and the product comes to the end of its natural life, it is thrown away. This analogy can be used to describe anything from a disposable plastic drinking straw to a building such as a warehouse which is constructed, only to be demolished years later. The point is exactly the same for both: each has an end of shelf life.

However, products such as steel are used rather than consumed. Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of steel is that it is completely recyclable. Once it has been made, it can be recycled and then used again and again without loss of quality. It’s this infinite ‘recyclability’ which helps to make steel so sustainable as once it has been manufactured, it can be remade and repurposed indefinitely.

Steel – the facts and figures

Here are some little known facts about steel – some of which might surprise you:

  • 99% of the steel in scrap vehicles has already been recycled.
  • Although 85% of all steel is currently recycled after first use, with the next decade global organisations anticipate that this figure will be much closer to 100%.
  • Despite efficient scrappage and recycling facilities, the demand for steel is continuing to grow at an incredible rate. However, one third of the amount currently used has been recycled.
  • 70% of all steel packaged is recycled in Europe – this is far higher than any other type of packing material.
