Steel construction combines a number of unique features that make it an ideal solution for many applications in the construction industry. Steel provides unbeatable speed of construction and off-site fabrication achieving minimal waste of material, thereby reducing the financial risks associated with site-dependent delays and congestions in the construction process. Recycling of steel structures is well known for decades. A new trend is towards structures that can be reused. This means that steel constructions are well suited to contribute towards reduction of the environmental impacts of the construction sector and active contribution to the circular economy.
