THE BENEFITS OF BUILDING WITH STEEL
Steel building systems offer structural strength and design freedom because of the durability and malleability of the steel. Architects and designers can more broadly explore shape, texture, and so on without some of the hindrances of timber building, e.g. load-bearing walls and multiple columns.
Using steel skeleton frames also provides an opportunity to create large open-plan spaces that span longer distances with fewer intermediate columns. These advantages make steel framing suitable for various projects that might require unique subdivisions or interior customization, including industrial and farming facilities, long-span structures, and multi-storey complexes.
