Steel in Architecture

Steel provides architects the flexibility to express or conceal a building's structural frame, either externally or internally, and can help facilitate the artistic expression the client desires.
Steel is a wonderfully expressive construction material that excels where the client brief creates opportunities for:
  • lightweight design: leading to reduced load on foundations and the ability to retrofit floors onto existing buildings
  • long-span solutions: taking advantage of steel’s incredible stiffness and strength-to-weight ratiof
  • flexible repurposed solutions: where the client requires the building or structure to have a flexible layout for future repurposing
  • Architecturally exposed structural steelwork: to stimulate visually or provide a signature look.
