The civil construction market is constantly seeking evolution and innovation in materials, processes, and results, developing techniques and exploring options that can provide cost and time reduction in construction projects while enhancing efficiency and performance.
Among many materials, steel, due to its characteristics and properties such as strength and durability, has increasingly found applications within the construction sector. It can be used in various forms, from foundations to structures, and even in sophisticated finishes, with steel as an exposed element.
The architectural possibilities are limitless. Due to its uses and applications, steel structures allow for the reduction of pillar and beam sections compared to reinforced concrete, gaining ceiling height and enabling better space utilization.
Among the main advantages of using steel in civil construction, we can highlight:
- Durability: To optimize the material’s efficiency, processes such as painting and galvanization provide effective corrosion protection, increasing durability and contributing to a lower environmental impact.
- Ease of transportation and handling: In projects with steel structures, components are usually prefabricated and transported to construction sites, making logistics and assembly/disassembly processes more straightforward.
- Sustainability: Steel is 100% recyclable, maintaining the same properties as it did at the beginning of the process. It is also less harmful to the environment, reducing the use of wood and concrete in construction, thereby minimizing waste and the disposal of materials in nature.
- Cost savings: Both in construction time and raw material rationalization, steel-based construction elements arrive ready at the construction site, allowing multiple stages to start simultaneously.
