Why Steel Construction Buildings?
Steel frame construction is set apart from other types of construction for a number of reasons. It can be much easier, faster, and cheaper to install, and it can be very flexible in its design. A lot of industrial building or large facility owners choose steel frame construction for its cost-effectiveness, and to make the building better able to be utilized for a wide variety of functions. Someone needing to erect a building on a tight time-frame can benefit from using structural steel fabrication also. However, these are not the only contexts where steel construction buildings are advantageous.
Steel frame buildings have commonly been used for purposes where a wide enclosed space is required, such as a space for storing large vehicles or aircraft, a space for recreation and sports events, a warehouse or storage space, and so on. These types of spaces need to be uninterrupted by supporting beams in the middle of the floor, and the structural stability of steel allows for this type of functionality.
Agricultural, recreational, and even religious buildings and structures can be designed with steel frames as well. These types of buildings are resilient and less susceptible to dangers that other construction might be. They can be energy saving as well. Let us share with you the specific features of steel frames and the reasons for steel frame building advantages that people love.
You may have noticed, but steel construction buildings have grown in popularity and widespread use throughout the years. They commonly makes an appearance in industrial settings, commercial buildings, storage and recreational spaces, and even for residential use. You may be curious what makes steel frame buildings a great choice for construction in all of these contexts. Perhaps you haven’t yet considered the reasons why steel frame construction like this may be a great option for your own purposes as well. We can show you a few reasons you may want steel for your project, and how you can save money finding the material you need to build.

We are excited to find how useful clear span and steel frame buildings are in so many contexts, and we have to say that we are not too surprised! The greater ventilation, ease of lighting, the acoustic aspects, and the relative energy efficiency offered by this type of construction is a huge plus in any building context.

Steel Frame Building Advantages
Along with its durability, steel confers numbers of other advantages over wood, stone, or concrete construction. Depending on what you are building, some of these advantages may yield a particular benefit to your purposes, and you may notice these advantages stand out to you. If you want to know more about what the advantages to your particular construction project could be when you choose to build with steel frames, contact us at Image Building Systems. We would love to give you more details about the advantages of steel construction, which include but are not limited to:
- Steel can be formed into any shape and covered in any material, including more steel designed to look like stone, bricks, or any other façade.
- Steel is flexible and resists dynamic forces, making it ideal for areas with heavy seismic activity or high winds.
- Fabrication is performed off the jobsite; construction consists of bolting the frame together. A building can be erected much quicker and easier than using other materials.
- Steel frames are up to 90% lighter than a comparable frame of concrete.
Were you worried that steel might not give you the aesthetic you were looking for? That it might be flimsy and unable to hold up under the harsh weather you experience in your climate? That it might take too long or cost too much to construct for your project? That it would be heavy and cumbersome to build? Fear no more, you have no limitations when it comes to steel construction. We can build stronger, more affordable, more versatile structures in a faster timeframe. We can also design any aesthetic you have in mind, and customize your building to fit your functional and visual needs in any context.
A growing economy and population require more storage and more facilities with open space for activities. Sports arenas are a popular use for clear span construction as are the extremely broad warehouses and distribution centers of retailers like Costco, Walmart, and Amazon. It’s no surprise they are turning to steel frame construction; this type of construction is amazingly reliable, affordable, and versatile to use. Commercial buildings can’t go wrong with pre-fabricated and steel frame construction.
Industrial farming and ranching also favor clear span buildings. Large numbers of animals can be housed out of the weather in a flexible floor arrangement of pens. Agricultural equipment from tractors are more easily moved and stored inside a clear span building. Plus, the open, uninterrupted space inside a clear span building can be put to use for almost any purpose.
What are the limits of the usefulness of steel frame and clear span construction? To be honest, we haven’t found an significant limits yet. In many ways, this type of construction has greatly expanded the possibilities of architecture and building. We are excited to see how commercial and business facilities can be stronger, more affordable, and more energy-efficient and sustainable than ever before, and to see how much flexibility and versatility of use clear span structures offer to spaces like those for recreational, agricultural, and other industrial purposes.
