In the UK, steel consumption is on the rise in the building industry, and unsurprisingly too. More and more people are recognising that structural steelworks are ideal for homes, schools, hospitals, and almost any kind of building. Steel framed buildings are cost effective, long-lasting, safe, flexible, produces no site waste, and helps speed along the construction process.
Why we love using it
Beyond practicality, steel is considered the green material of construction, being 100% recyclable, and the most sustainable of the major structural materials, low waste, and reusable. Furthermore, the structural steel industry is proactive in continuing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the industry remains the world leader in the use of recycled material and end-of-life recycling. In total, over 500 million tonnes of steel is recycled worldwide every year, and over 80% of all steel scrap that becomes available each year is recycled.
