Here at Steelwork Engineering we are an established company with many years of experience in the design, manufacture and installation of a wide range of steel products, including steel framed houses. We work with clients of all sizes – from homeowners and builders, through to property developers and construction companies – providing cost-effective steel framed buildings designed and built to last.
Steel construction offers a number of significant advantages, helping to explain why it is rapidly replacing wood as the construction material of choice. Here are just some of the reasons why steel framed houses are becoming increasingly popular in Leeds:
Steel weighs less than wood: this might surprise you as although steel weighs more than wood because of its density, when used to frame a building, the design of the beam means that it will be lighter than a wooden beam.
Building projects are faster: as anyone who’s worked on a building project will know, timing is critical! If deadlines are missed and elements of a project are missed, the knock-on effect can be significant in terms of cost, quality and safety. Because steel parts are pre-engineered off-site to meet the exact measurements and specifications required, they are delivered to a site ready to be assembled. This helps to speed-up construction times, helping cut costs and ensure deadlines are met.
