Australia’s building market is typically made up of businesses in non-residential, or industrial, residential and infrastructure building developments.
Metalcorp Steel understands that customers in these markets need access to a wide range of steel materials quickly, to respond to their customers needs. Critical to large building developments is access to trusted products, such as sheet and coil products like COLORBOND® steel and ZINCALUME® steel, and plate products, such as XLERPLATE® steel.
Products such as these are produced to relevant Australian Standards, in Australia, for Australian conditions. As well as flat steel products, tube, bar, structural and reinforcing products are key to the building industry, and Metalcorp Steel can supply to meet our customers needs.
The advantages that steel offers to the construction sector have long been recognised by designers, engineers and architects. The market share of steel is approximately 90% for single-storey industrial buildings and 70% for multi-storey non-residential buildings. Structural steel is an essential component of many stadiums, shopping centres and commercial developments both in Australia and worldwide.
There are many reasons for this proliferation of steel use. First and foremost, steel is versatile, which gives architects the freedom to achieve their most creative and ambitious visions. It is also one of the most sustainable construction materials, offering strength and durability as well as an ability to be recycled, time and time again without losing quality.
When it comes to construction, steel is often the first choice on the basis of cost alone. However building owners also value the flexibility of steel buildings, and the light, open, airy spaces that can be created. Steel is ideal for modernisation, reconfiguring, extending or adapting with minimal disruption, and without costly demolition and redevelopment.
Steel offers consistently high quality standards, and guaranteed strength and durability in the most challenging environments. If you’re looking for quality assurance, structural steelwork delivers complete certainty, every time.
