Benefits of steel frame construction
Steel frame construction offers multiple benefits for property developers, here are some outlined by our steel frame construction experts.
Dependable structural integrity for decades to come
Using bolted steel construction process in steel building construction for steel frame houses, commercial steel frame structures, and industrial steel-framed building construction, allows achieving dependable structural integrity of the final structure, which will last for decades to come.
Seemless flow with no interruptions
Off-site fabrication of structural steel members, and delivery of steel members to the construction site, where pre-painted steel components are bolted together to form the steel frame structures. If you let Structural Beam handle your steel-framed building construction project, we’ll organize a seamless uninterrupted flow, resulting in timely project completion.
Sudden fail-proof buildings
Structural mild steel, like ASTM A36, provides structural strength to horizontal beams, anchor bolts, steel studs, is naturally fire-resistant, and thus great for home construction. Steel buildings are safe from sudden failure of wood construction, which can suddenly crack and fail. Mild steel frames are ductile, and in case of being structurally compromised, slowly bend, allowing to spot the deformation well before anything untoward would occur, and fix the problem. Most other materials are prone to sudden structural failure, but not mild steel.
Pre-fabrication equals speed
Such high efficiency of construction is possible, because all the steel frame components for steel frames, like columns, beams, floor joists, are pre-fabricated, eliminating a need for expensive labor on site.
Steel frame home construction is a great way to save money for prospective homeowners, allowing them to construct energy-efficient private homes at minimum cost.
Most of the high-rise buildings are built very fast using steel frame construction methods, to save money and time on labor costs.
Works for projects of any size
Structural steel framing is great for residential and small buildings like steel frame homes, steel frame comes up fast, saving money and time for developers . At the same time, the metal-framed construction method works great for high-rise buildings.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is a steel frame constructed?
The steel frame is constructed from pre-fabricated structural steel members, that are delivered to the construction site, and erected by the erection gang. The columns are erected first, then girders are put into place and bolted without tightening. Then, the erection gang works under the direct structural engineer’s supervision and guidance to align the structure. After alignment has been achieved, the steel frame members are tightly bolted together.
Is a steel frame house cheaper to build?
Steel framed house is cheaper and faster to build than a brick house or cement unit masonry house. Since structural steel provides a great strength-to-weight ratio., the foundation doesn’t have to be that strong and thus, expensive. Add the speed of steel-framed home construction, and there you have the answer.
What is steel frame system?
A steel frame system is a system of structural steel members bolted (and, at times, welded) together, so a rigid frame is constructed. Since the thick masonry walls don’t take up the space, it allows for free living space planning and more place for the inhabitants.
