The Four Advantages of Structural Steel Frame Construction

Written By Rob NSB

November 26, 2019

If you are looking to start construction on a building all your own, there is no better material to use than steel. Steel is in the midst of a renaissance as more and more small businesses and entrepreneurs begin using the material to make their dreams a reality. The three major calling calls of steel are its affordability, its sustainability, and its durability.

Steel is lighter than you believe

When people think of steel they think of these big beams that crush anything in sight, but in reality using steel in construction, as a frame is actually lighter than the most structurally sound wood. Since steel is so much more lighter than the necessary wood, you save money on the shipping of the product, which turns around and lessens your carbon footprint when you factor in the environment damage, and can simplify your building’s foundation which will lead to keeping the costs of your building down.

Steel can be used to build very quickly

Steel as a framing material is easier to assemble than other materials. The parts of your building are made to exact specifications before they are shipped and then those parts are all assembled according to the plan. It is like assembling a desk or bookshelf in your home, just much larger. This makes construction a breeze compared to other materials, and an easy construction means an on time opening of your business and your building be fully functional when you plan for it to be so. There is no need for measuring and cutting on site, and using steel almost completely removes the idea of human error from the equation. If you are looking to build on an expedited schedule, steel ensures that no corners are cut to get your building up in time. It protects your greatest asset, the building itself where your future is housed.

You save money by building with steel

Steel allows for you to save money throughout your project. It costs less to ship the materials as they weigh less than the wood that would need to be used inside the building. With little human error you save on construction costs and have a smaller risk of having to pay for overtime and new materials from the construction crews. Steel is recyclable so that if you have leftover materials or are looking to remove the building in your later years the steel is salvageable and retains value.

Steel is a very versatile product

Steel can be used in a wide variety of buildings from warehouses to greenhouses to workhouses. Steel is durable and can protect your products from harsh outdoor

elements. Steel is beginning to see more usage in residential homes as well as they allow for less support beams to be made throughout the structure and allow for more open floor plans which can make each house as unique as the families purchasing them.

Insulated Workshop – Beth Chatto Gardens

Our team is very pleased with the building and from our point of view it has been a pleasure working with you too.

It was an exciting project for us and the first building of this scale we have had – it was reassuring that you could take the time to talk us through the many options and you were very helpful and practical in your advice.

When we recover from the impact of Covid19 we may well be in touch for another building 😊

Workshop & MOT Bay – Steel Frame Building

We needed to extend our existing MOT Bays, Nat Steel came up with a geat design which enabled us to make the most of the limited room we had in our yard.  A couple of minor issues that were quickly resolved as we went along.

Cannot fault the service received and the building is great.
