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. Visit https://constructsteel.org/technical-information/design/composite-construction/
Steel can also be used in non-loadbearing parts of a structure, including roofs and walls, windows, doors and rails.
The non-loadbearing steel components can be designed, shaped and treated to ensure they meet the highest standards of health and safety, as well as guaranteeing occupant comfort by meeting demanding acoustic criteria.
Ease of construction, and the increases in speed this offers, is one of steel’s key qualities. Visit https://constructsteel.org/technical-information/design/connections/
