Compared to concrete, steel allows the weight of certain structures to be reduced by up to 30%.
Less construction time:
In any work, the deadline can be decisive. Metal structures, being lighter, require a shallower foundation depth and, moreover, steel is available in a large number of sizes and shapes, simplifying assembly.
Savings in materials:
Steel makes it possible to reduce the surface to be painted by up to 50%.
Steel has higher fire resistance at the time of fire.
Ease of design:
The lightness and elasticity of steel, in addition to its resistance, make it the ideal material for carrying out works of innovative design.
Under later maintenance:
This allows a lower investment in maintenance and remodeling.
Its high strength per unit weight allows for lightweight structures, an important aspect in the construction of bridges, tall buildings and structures founded on soft soils.
Steel allows modifications and/or extensions to projects much more easily than other commonly used materials.
