Structural steel isn’t just for skyscrapers, large agriculture buildings and garages. There are multiple reasons why steel makes an attractive Steel Structure House option from start to finish, not the least of which are:
Steel is a versatile building material, which has led to its inclusion in nearly every stage of the construction process from framing and floor joists, to roofing materials.
This may seem surprising at first, because if you weigh a 2×4 of wood and a 2×4 of steel, the steel will weigh more as the result of its density. When it comes to framing a house, however, The design of a steel I-beam will almost always cause it to be lighter than the lightest, structurally sound wood beam design.
Steel parts are pre-engineered to a specific steel structure house design inside the manufacturing plant and are shipped out, ready to be erected. This speeds up construction time significantly, making it possible to complete large-scale projects in a matter of weeks.
Because the fabrication of the house process is highly quality-controlled, project managers can place their attention on other issues other than the prefab house and the pre-cut, ready to assemble parts eliminate the need for measuring and cutting on site. This also takes the element of human error out of the equation, reducing the amount of time spent assembling something only to find out it needs to be re-measured, cut and installed again.
In addition to project time and budget issues, a faster steel structure house construction timeline also reduces the amount of time your construction project impedes traffic, affects the flow into and out of surrounding businesses and any water or utility disruptions to nearby buildings.
