The general contractor comes to help
Types of structural steel contractors
Metal framing contractors specialize in various parts of the metal framing process:
- Metal framing designing
- Metal framing estimation and detailing
- Metal framing manufacturing and fabrication
- Metal framing erection and metal framing installation
For commercial and residential construction projects property developers have to work with general contractors, that can fulfill all of the mentioned requirements by coordinating the work and cooperation of various metal contractors.
Of course, when there’s communication and cooperation between different business entities is involved, there’s always room for miscommunication. A good general steel contractor can deal with all the issues involved in this type of setup.
But, Structural Beam has got something better to offer for your project!
When residential and commercial property developers work with Structural Beam in the general steel framing contractor capacity, Structural Beam can handle it all, under the “one hands” approach. These are the benefits for the property developers this kind of approach brings :
- Efficient communication within one company eliminates issues with communication, cooperation, and planning, that can arise from the multiple contractors working on one project, doing just their own parts
- The responsibility for the smooth flow of the steel framing process is concentrated within one general contractor company, which improves the predictability of the outcome, streamlines the whole project, and assures its timely completion, a very important point to consider for commercial and residential property developers, who have to be very clear on the schedule of the property development project
- Improved logistics within one company help to save on the usage of heavy machinery and equipment and eliminate any extra costs, arising from delays
- In the case of remodeling of the existing building, and steel framing installations, it helps the building owners to get the best results, since they can work closely with Structural Beam’s team to give feedback on the project, and efficiently adjust and make changes, if needed
