Steel Structure Construction Type


Introducing next are the three kinds of steel structure construction

Bolted Steel Construction:

Bolted steel construction occurs when steel fabricators produce finished and painted steel components, which are then shipped to the site and simply bolted in place. The bulk of the fabrication can be done in workshops, with the right machinery, lighting, and work conditions, thus, this is the most preferred method of steel construction.

The size of the components is governed by the size of the truck or trailer they are shipped in. Once they are shipped to the desired location, the only work to be done at a site is lifting the steel structures into place with the help of cranes and then bolting. This way, the work at the site is tremendously fast. An example of bolted steel construction is pre-engineered buildings, as they are designed, fabricated, shipped and erected by one company to the owner.


Light Gauge Steel Construction:

For residential and small buildings in North America and parts of Europe, Light Gauge Steel Construction is a type of construction that is common. This is quite similar to wood-framed construction, except that light gauge steel members are used in place of wood two-by-fours.

Conventional Steel Fabrication:

When teams of steel fabricators cut members of steel to the correct lengths, and then weld them together to make the final structure, this is termed as the conventional steel fabricator. If done at the construction site, it requires a lot of manpower. However, for best results, it can be partially done in a workshop to provide better working conditions and reduce work-time.

Steel structure construction is a super-quick installation building, and therefore a lot of work can be prefabricated at the factory.
