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
