With the more traditional ways of building a structure becoming redundant, a new innovation in structure building has become the process of building steel structures.

Building steel structures in South Africa has become the most preferred way of building due to the following factors:

  • Steel structures are less expensive to manufacture, erect and maintain than wood, brick or concrete and therefore much more effective as a profitable building material for both the client and the steel structure company.
  • Steel structures are far lighter by length but also far stronger when compared to more traditional building materials.
  • As steel is derived from man-made materials, steel structures are far more environmentally friendly than wood.
  • Steel structures are seen as a “green” form of building as it can contain assist better in the running of solar powered components due to its capacity for containing the sun’s energy.
  • Steel structures are treated with the least amount of effort to be resistant to rust, wind, rain and more resistant to harsh weather conditions like hurricanes and tornados.
  • Due to steel structures being pre-manufactured on site, there is no residues in terms of building rubble left behind after the installation process has commenced.

The installation process of steel structures is therefore much less time consuming, relating to less labour and installation costs when compared to traditional building materials like brick and wood.
