Steel is Better, Stronger, Healthier and Fire-Resistant.

Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any other building material in the world. New construction methods make steel frame buildings a smarter choice for office and multifamily developments.

The latest steel frame house technology enables us to have lower floor-to-floor heights than typically expected in structural steel buildings. Steel can also accomplish extremely long spans in structures and open-floor layouts without intermediate columns. This translates to unlimited design options for the creative architect while at the same time reducing building costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the steel come from?

Buying steel framed home is earth friendly, built with mostly recycled material in North America and Europe. It's 100% recyclable; in fact, more steel is recycled than aluminum, plastic and glass combined.

Are steel houses stronger?

Less weight results in less movement and will sustain less damage in an earthquake; a lighter structure with stronger connections lowers the seismic force. All of these homes can be built to seismic 10 (EU) standards. Steel framed homes can withstand 150 mile high winds from a hurricane or tornado because the homes are connected with high strength screws. With the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, steel framing is stronger and lighter (up to 60% less than wood framing), resulting in a safer structure, with less maintenance and a slower aging process.

Do steel homes rust?

The use of painted red iron and galvanized steel framing protects your home against rust. The steel has a protective coating and is completely enclosed and protected from the weather.
