Structural & Fabrication Work

Structural steel fabrication is the process of bending, cutting, and modelling steel to form a structure. For structural steel fabrication pieces of steel are put together to make different structures that are usually of predefined sizes and shapes. It is a complex process that requires specialized knowledge, skills, and resources to complete successfully.

Application of structural steel fabrication in construction

Structural steel is a high quality material and many applications depend solely on it for its construction. Its application area include;

  • High-rise buildings
  • Industrial Buildings
  • Residential Buildings
  • Parking Garages
  • Bridges

Advantages of structural steel fabrication

  • Steel is highly durable, it is corrosion resistant and tensile. The strength of steel is higher than its density which makes it an excellent choice for construction.
  • Structural steel usually arrives in the pre-fabrication phase and is fabricated on-site. Pre-fabrications reduce how much work needs to be done on-site, fast-tracking projects.
  • Structural steel is cost-effective when compared to other metals such as copper, silver, gold, aluminum and magnesium.
  • The components of structural steel are easy to install after fabrication, so with increased efficiency in the installation process, a considerable amount of money and time is saved.
  • Steel metallurgical properties enable it to be fabricated into any shape and size with ease. Steel structures are fabricated by welding or bolting them together.
  • Structural steel is coated with a fire resistant material which makes it highly resistant to fire. It is water resistant. It can withstand storms, and earthquakes if built properly.
  • Structural steel components are built off-site, thereby reducing the chances of any accidents on site. It is resistant to molds and termites which makes it a good choice.
  • Structural steel is easily recyclable and is, therefore, an environment-friendly option for metal fabricators.
  • Structural steel is a practical choice for a wide range of designs from simple to complex.
  • Steel provides significant cost savings, ROI for structural steel is closely associated with its strength and reliability
