As weather conditions can vary significantly within a matter of hours, site managers should continually monitor weather changes to take appropriate measures. Steel’s ability to increase the speed of construction through its modular fabrication, enables tight schedules that can fit more easily around changeable weather conditions. 

Weather conditions that can affect construction include; 

  • Rain or dew that leaves steel wet
  • High winds that could move small components around and affect suspended loads or unfinished structures
  • Ice, snow or frost that could leave surfaces slippery
  • Fog, glare or other vision impairing weather conditions
