Steel is the new name for green in construction world. Steel with its recycling properties is a known eco-friendly material. But it’s the steel construction that gets more points on the green scale. Steel metal buildings are constructed with minimum of space, time and volume of materials.
Steel building construction involves assembly of prefabricated steel components. These components are made on order according to the requirement of the building design. The green news is that the components are made in a controlled environment where all the gases and pollution are diluted well before releasing into environment. The standard components are built on large scale and hence very economical.
The on-site construction of steel metal building even for the tall ones are completely dust free. Steel constructions are very unconventional and simpler, hence perfect for steel residential buildings.
Steel Buildings have a good end of life options,
- The components of steel buildings can be as such used for another construction.
- For the parts not reused can be recycled.
- Steel foundations are easy to remove.
Steel is for Commercial or Residential Structures?
Steel is been used for the construction of commercial buildings ever since it came to existence. However the idea of steel building without concrete is modern. Steel is not so popular for residential buildings for its unconventional construction style but steel is as good for homes as for commercial sites. Steel homes are architecturally modern and give a very plush exterior look.
