The Value of Steel Fabrication for Construction

May 24, 2016

Skilled steel fabrication shops like Baseline Custom Fabricating Ltd. can handle any type of project, varying in size and complexity. Steel fabrication has taken dominance in the construction industry owing to that fact that steel is long lasting, reliable, and can be used in multiple applications. From your kitchen sink to your window frames, steel is everywhere. 70 percent of your car is made of steel. It is no doubt that you get the impression that steel is quite durable and sturdy. So the question is, are there proven advantages of using steel fabricated products or is it just another trend?

Flexibility and value for money

Steel literally offers value for money when compared with traditional construction materials. It is flexible in design, and offers an option for pre-engineering, which is not available for most other materials. It is easy to re-shape, customize, or even redesign steel fabricated shapes because of the basic properties of the metal. Steel is actually an alloy, a mixture of several metals. Of course the main ingredients are carbon and iron, but there are small amounts of phosphorus, oxygen, silicon and sulphur. When these materials are combined during the initial alloy formation process, they result in a strong material which not only overcomes the weaknesses of the individual metals but also showcases superior performance in many applications. With upcoming technologies and reliable techniques in steel fabrication, it is possible to get your project completed within a very short time. Modern steel fabrication machines allow the reduction of wastage, and the material can easily be recycled.

Prefabricated buildings take advantage of offsite steel fabrication to double the construction speed by having some of the work done away from the site. Since it’s all a game of measurements, it is easy to have different parts engineered in a steel fabrication shop and then have them transported to the construction site.
