How sustainable are steel framed buildings?

Steel framed buildings lead the way for sustainable construction.

Steel buildings are an environmentally friendly choice as they use fewer natural resources in their manufacture compared to traditional builidings.  The steel building envelope, which consists of a steel frame and steel cladding, is also widely recyclable.

Quick & safe construction

  • Steel building components are factory made to exacting standards meaning less waste is created.
  • Steel has a high strength : weight ratio, making it relatively lightweight to handle and economical to transport.
  • Steel buildings are proven to be safer to construct than traditinoal structures.
  • Steel buildings have a quick turnaround, allowing a quicker return on investment from plan to finished project.

Steel is infinitely recyclable without any loss of quality

Improvements in manufacturing methods have reduced the energy required in the steel making process by approximately 50% helping to reduce carbon emissions.

All steel buildings almost certainly contain some recycled steel and at the end of their lives they can be recycled again, making steel buildings truly sustainable.
