Commercial Construction Going Green

The sustainable nature of steel structures is starting to become better known in the construction industry with more and more clients looking for building solutions that will reduce environmental impact but also provide financial efficiencies for their business.

Steel is a great product to use if you are looking for greener or more sustainable building options.

Aside from being 100% recyclable, steel also ensure less tree felling is required in the fabrication process and offers clear efficiency benefits:

  • Steel structures are heavy and won’t catch fire easily
  • They can be easily transported and installed
  • They are less prone to climate extremes and therefore more energy efficient
  • Steel structures can be designed to improve thermal performance
  • Steel offers a reflective surface so can protect building structures from the sun and internal warming
  • The structures are designed to last meaning less wastage through demolition, events of nature and redevelopment

An increased social conscious and the need for business owners to reduce their operating costs and wastage on energy and maintenance, has generated great interest in the role of steel in the construction industry.
