Steel Structure – The Future of Structure
If you’re looking for the most cost-effective building type, it’s important to consider your potential long-term savings along with your initial investment in any shape of structure, let’s think about steel structure.
What is steel structure?
Steel structure is a metal structure which is made of structural steel* components connect with each other to carry loads and provide full rigidity. Because of the high strength grade of steel, this structure is reliable and requires less raw materials than other types of structure like concrete structure and timber structure.
In modern construction, steel structure is used for almost every type of structure including heavy industrial buildings, multi-storey buildings, equipment support systems, infrastructure, bridges, towers, airport terminals, etc.

*Structural steel is steel construction material which fabricated with a specific shape and chemical composition to suit a project’s applicable specifications.
Depending on each project’s applicable specifications, the steel sections might have various shapes, sizes and gauges made by hot or cold rolling, others are made by welding together flat or bent plates. Common shapes include the I-beam, HSS, Channels, Angles and Plate.

5 reasons why steel structure is the best choice?
1. Cost savings
Steel structure is the cost leader for most projects in materials and design. It is inexpensive to manufacture and erection, requires less maintenance than other traditional building methods.
Steel has a natural beauty that most architects can’t wait to take advantage of. Steel allows for long column-free spans and you can have a lot of natural light if you want it in any shape of structure.

3. Control and Management
Steel structures is fabricated at factory and rapidly erected at construction site by skilled personnel that makes safe construction process. Industry surveys consistently demonstrate that steel structure is the optimal solution in management.
It can withstand extreme forces or harsh weather conditions, such as strong winds, earthquakes, hurricanes and heavy snow. They are also unreceptive to rust and, unlike wood frames, they are not affected by termites, bugs, mildew, mold and fungi.
