Similar to wood framed construction – the light gauge steel beams are placed to create a frame. This is also referred to as cold formed sections. Coating is applied to increase the durability and sustainability depending on the environment, and dry sheeting can be added on both sides to form a load bearing wall.
The use of concrete in building structures is a method which was established centuries ago. Concrete is sustainable and highly durable, lasting long periods without any interference in destruction from wind, water, and fire. It also retains heat, which increases the energy efficiency of buildings.
Hybrid construction is the combination of different materials or techniques to design a range of highly efficient building structures. Using the combination of wood, concrete and steel provides a cost-effective and sustainable solution to building structures as well as options to improve building performance and design.
Structural steel has become one of the most prevalent construction materials of the century. It is a durable, reliable, cost-effective, sustainable option for low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise building projects and typically used as an extremely important component of modern buildings.
