reduced waste, resilient material, rapid construction
Less environmental waste
Steel is fabricated off-site, meaning that a lot of the work is already done when it arrives to site. On quick completion, other trades can then enter the site sooner. Overall, this speeds up the project timescale as it’s not hampered by on-site access limitations and uncontrollable elements like weather conditions.
For example, Steel Frame Homes can construct a steel-frame average family-home in four to six weeks – as opposed to four to six months with timber-frame homes.
Minimised carbon footprint
Accelerated construction and less labour mean less impact on our planet. When using steel in this way, we are economising and minimising our carbon footprint. Steel is overall more environmentally-friendly.
