Steel provides cost-effective, sustainable and resilient design solutions for owners, architects, engineers, building officials and contractors.
Its benefits include ease of mass production and prefabrication, uniform quality, lightweight designs, economy in transportation and handling, and quick and simple erection or installation. Steel is durable, strong and adaptable.
Steel is sustainable and is the most recycled material on Earth. As a noncombustible material, it provides long-term safety benefits to occupants. It also performs well during earthquakes, hurricanes and other extreme events.
