Sustainable Construction

Industrial Steel buildings pave the way forward for sustainable construction

Choosing an industrial steel building is an environmentally-friendly option for your next industrial or agricultural sustainable construction.

Compared to a more traditional structure, less natural resources will be used in manufacturing a steel kit form building, which consists of a steel frame and steel cladding. In a resource-constrained world, the cost and value of the materials and components used to construct buildings are rising. The properties of construction materials vary dramatically in terms of their capacity to be recycled. Materials such as metals are truly recyclable, they can easily be recycled into new products of the same quality and function, timelessly.

Speedy and safe construction

  • Steel building components are factory-made to exacting standards meaning less waste is created
  • Steel has a high strength to weight ratio making it relatively lightweight to handle and economical to transport
  • Steel buildings are proven to be safer to construct than traditional structures
  • Steel buildings have a quick turnaround allowing a quicker return on investment from plan to the 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% more efficient, ultimately helping to reduce carbon emissions. Your industrial steel building will almost certainly contain some recycled steel and what’s more, at the end of its life it can be recycled again, making it truly sustainable. Completing a closed-loop circular environment.
