Role of Prefabricated Steel Buildings in Commercial Constructions
Steel buildings and steel-based construction gained popularity during the early 20th century for their use in the commercial construction industry. By nature, Steel is a sturdy and tough material, and it helps build strong and durable structures that last for decades. Additionally, many constructions experts and engineers worldwide have corroborated that well-insulated steel buildings can help owners significantly reduce the heating and cooling costs. Whether it is an office space, manufacturing facility, factory, or retail buildings, the use of steel is widespread.
Today, many construction companies and fabricators have prefabricated steel buildings for commercial construction. It helps reduce the construction time without compromising on the security and safety aspects of the building.
Let us look at the role of prefabricated steel buildings in commercial constructions:
Among all the metals used for structure building, steel has one of the highest strength to weight ratio. Steel is a superior construction material as it prevents splitting, warping, rusting, rotting, and cracking. Most importantly, steel does not contract or expand due to moisture and other external weather conditions. Thus, the prefabricated steel buildings have a robust structure and foundation.
One of the hallmarks of an excellent construction is its durability. Since the building is made of steel, you can be sure that the construction will last for a few decades. The superior strength of steel means you get a sturdier structure that withholds other construction materials for a long time.
Another significant benefit of prefabricated steel building is that it is incredibly versatile. The prefabricated steel structures allow you to get finishes like the bricks, stones, as well as other traditional construction finishes. With prefabricated home extension solutions like Nestudio, you can get your own personalized space with branded fittings and accessories.
Promotes green building
With the growing concerns about environmental pollution and its dangerous effects, there is a pressing need to curb the pollution around the construction site. This is where prefab steel construction plays a role. Since a large part of the work is done off-site, it causes minimal pollution on site. In fact, a life cycle assessment study done for HabiNest, Nest-In’s light gauge steel frame construction solution, found that HabiNest has environmental savings in the range of 48% to 61%, when compared with a similar-sized conventional structure.
At Tata Steel Nest-In, we have the best steel construction experts who take the initial concept and develop the best solution for every project we undertake. Whatever be your commercial building needs be, we leverage our expertise to do the job quickly and efficiently.
