Advantages of Steel Structures

Steel structures have the following advantages:
  • They are super-quick to build at site, as a lot of work can be pre-fabricated at the factory.
  • They are flexible, which makes them very good at resisting dynamic (changing) forces such as wind or earthquake forces.
  • A wide range of ready-made structural sections are available, such as I, C, and angle sections
  • They can be made to take any kind of shape, and clad with any type of material
  • A wide range of joining methods is available, such as bolting, welding, and riveting
