Out of a wide variety of construction materials, structural steel is considered to be the best. Structural steel has become one of the most prevalent construction materials, and is often seen as a key component of modern buildings and houses. At MAS Building and Bridge, our well-trained ironworkers, being led by one of Massachusset’s most experienced project management teams, will be sure to complete your project safely, on time and under budget.
Why Its Strength Makes Structural Steel One Of The Cornerstones Of Modern Construction
Speed of Construction
Steel structures can be erected easily, which means shorter construction time and more money saved. This is a major advantage to using structural steel for your large-scale construction projects.
Steel, both as a raw alloy and pre-made components, is very easy to find. This allows companies to access a supply of steel anywhere in the world. Steel is also the most recycled material on the planet, which can be salvaged and repurposed for a new project.
Along with faster construction times and reducing the price of labor, the cost of steel is lower than other framing materials since it’s reusable and recyclable. A large amount of recovered steel could reduce the cost of a structure drastically.
Structural steel is very lightweight. Because of this, it has a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing for less steel needed during construction on general steel buildings. Structural steel provides better compression and tension properties, resulting in lightweight construction that’s still durable.
From faster construction times and better availability of material, to cost-efficiency and high strength, structural steel is one of the best building materials on the market.
