Composite construction

Composite construction is the main form of construction in the multi-storey building sector. This is due to the strength and stiffness that can be achieved, while minimising use of materials. It accomplishes this by utilising the compressive strength of concrete and the tensile strength of steel. 

Composite floors offer significant advantages related to speed of construction and reduced overall construction depth.
