The intrinsic advantages of steel (listed below) are easily recognized by project decision makers and contractors:
- Best in class resistance to weight ratio
- Capability to produce tailor made shapes, welded or bolted, based on flat or long products
- Prefabrication off- site as well as quick erection on- site in order to shorten construction planning
Long- span structures are more frequently used in buildings and civil engineering construction as they offer full flexibility, adaptability, life cycle assets, cost cost savings and reduced environmental footprint.
