Wide range, consistent quality
Commercial property erection project with concrete masonry
One of Structural Beam’s projects, recently completed, involved concrete block masonry along with structural steel frame erection. From the engineer’s drawings, through structural steel detailing and estimation, in cooperation with our structural steel fabricators, exacting shop drawings were produced.
Structural Beam’s metal fabrication team did a great job at our metal fabrication workshop. Next were our experienced and knowledgeable structural steel erectors, erecting the steel frame and passing the torch to the concrete masons. Concrete masonry walls were built with concrete masonry units.
Structural Beam did well, making our customers happy with high-quality construction, completed on time and at a very reasonable price.
Rebuilding and repurposing heritage brick masonry buildings is not a shabby task by any means, but Structural Beam’s team completed the project and successfully installed structural steel beams, did brick masonry restoration, and some concrete masonry work, giving a new life to a heritage building.
Customers with home and commercial property repair, renovation, and remodeling/rebuilding projects get a lot of benefits from Structural Beam’s general contractor capabilities.
Brick and concrete masonry service, combined with structural steel installation and replacement projects are greatly helped by our expertise in the repair, rebuilding, and renovation. It allows our customers to save time and money by going with our comprehensive service.
Private house structural steel members replacement and renovation
When structural steel lintels start to become compromised, it’s time to replace them with new ones. This kind of job has to be done on a tight schedule for minimal disruption of the inhabitants’ lives and has to be particularly well-coordinated, with fast and seamless steel members installation and subsequent brick wall restoration.
It’s a generic casual example, but recently we had to remove and replace large structural steel girders that became compromised with time. We finished quite a few jobs like that recently, and have a good engineering department to deal with the task at hand, in full legal and regulatory compliance. In the end, you’ll get a carefully restored building, ready to serve you long and well.
The outline of the works required for this type of project:
- Estimation of overall project cost
- Designing of the structural steel members, 3D modeling, AutoCAD
- Structural steel detailing and estimation
- Structural steel fabrication in our metal fabrication workshop
- Repair and replacement of the structural steel members
- Subsequent brick masonry wall restoration
Fabrication and erection of miscellaneous metal structures, like steel balconies, metal fire escape staircases, metal porches, etc., is another specialty of Structural Beam, that requires close cooperation of all departments. The “All in same hands” approach is a great asset here, we take full responsibility for the completion of the project, and our designers, estimators, fabricators, and erectors, again and again, do a stellar job in erecting and installing high-quality miscellaneous steel structures.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is concrete compatible with steel?
Concrete and steel are compatible and work together very well, think concrete masonry structures and concrete masonry structural walls of reinforced concrete. Great compatibility of concrete and steel comes from their similar coefficients of thermal expansion, and the ability to form a suitable bond between concrete and rebar rods.
How does concrete and steel work together?
Steel provides reinforcement in the reinforced masonry walls, a combination of steel and concrete results in a stronger construction because steel and concrete work together in resisting force, e.g. tensile, shearing forces, and compressive stresses.
Why do builders combined concrete and steel when constructing a building?
Steel reinforcement makes stronger thinner and lighter concrete slabs, increasing the strength-to-weight ratio. This way architects can use less concrete for the slab, and still have it strong enough. It helps to reduce the loads that columns and foundations have to bear, resulting in the cost-efficiency of the construction projects.
