									Steel Building Construction Steel building construction is the process of building a
structure, using steel as the raw material. Steel is an advantageous building material that
enables a simple and easy construction process. Steel building construction has 48% of
the total market share of construction. It includes commercial buildings, industrial
buildings, temporary shelters, storage units, churches and air hangers. The construction
process differs with the style of the building. However, the basic steps are the same. Steel
building construction is flexible than traditional building methods. Steel building
construction is taken up by many architectural firms. It also provides the opportunity for
do-it-yourself construction. Planning and scheduling are the pre-requisites of steel
building construction. The standard patterns include LRB, LR and LM. The design that
suits the needs and purpose can be finalized from available patterns. In standard
construction, the material fabrication is done at the site of the building under the
supervision of the engineers, according to the custom design. Now, pre-engineered
systems are available, in which 70% of the system fabrication is done in the
manufacturer's factory and shipped to the construction site. The customer merely has to
assemble the building kit on the ground. This reduces the labor and 2 or 3 people will be
enough to erect this building. The style of steel building construction is based on the
space requirements. A building permit is essential to start the construction. The
foundation is the basic step of onsite construction. Depending on the weather and soil
conditions, an appropriate foundation lay out is selected. Concrete floor slabs or steel
base rails have to be built. The main columns of the steel frame are embedded to the
foundation. The building rafters are fixed to the columns with anchor bolts. The wall
frames leave places for doors and windows. The roof sheet is installed on the purlins and
wall girts with metal screws. Door and window installation is the final step in steel
building construction. In case of arch construction, the arches that act as side walls as
well as roofs can be erected from the foundation, one after the other. Insulation can be
also added to the steel building. Steel building construction offers benefits such as faster
installation, sustainability and unlimited design flexibility. It reduces energy cost and the
amount of waste material. It does not require any sophisticated tools for assembly. Steel
constructions can successfully withstand natural pressures such as earthquakes, severe
cold or hurricanes. New innovations in the color code and accessories will add to the
aesthetics of steel building construction. Steel Buildings provides detailed information on
Steel Buildings, Commercial Steel Buildings, Pre-Fabricated Steel Buildings, Steel
Storage Buildings and more. Steel Buildings is affiliated with Metal Building Kits.
