Is steel environmentally friendly and sustainable?
Steel is completely recyclable, possesses great durability, and, compared to other materials, requires relatively low amounts of energy to produce. Innovative lightweight steels (such as those used in in automobiles and buildings) help to save energy and resources. The steel industry has made immense efforts to limit environmental pollution in the last decades. Producing one tonne of steel today requires just 40% of the energy it did in 1960. Dust emissions have been reduced by even more.
What makes steel construction superior to wood?
Steel buildings are more durable than wood, and more resistant to water damage. Steel will not warp or expand like wood does, and it does not rot, so it will be less likely to attract fungus. Termites and other insects who eat wood will also steer clear of a steel construction.
Why should I build in steel?
The steel industry is always evolving. Approximately 75% of modern steels have been developed in the past 20 years. If the Eiffel Tower were to be rebuilt today, the engineers would only need one-third of the steel that was originally used. For example, modern cars are built with new steels that are stronger but up to 35% lighter than in the past.
Are steel frames energy efficient?
Steel framed homes are energy efficient. Compared to homes built from timber or brick, steel framed homes are more energy efficient in terms of thermal regulation. So they are cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This means you will need to spend less money on heating and cooling a steel framed home.
Is steel construction more cost effective?
Not only are steel buildings quicker and more convenient to build, but they are also cheaper and easier to maintain. Unlike other building options, steel is most often thought of as a one-time cost. Steel is impervious to many extreme weather conditions and is designed to survive for decades to come.
