Special structures

Steel – a fascinating building material

Steel opens a huge range of possibilities for architects and engineers. Its structural and technological properties are above average. The high-quality material allows design possibilities that delight lay people and experts alike. Steel allows spans and heights that no other building material with the same cross-section can even remotely approach. Nothing else has such a good strength to weight ratio. Clients and planners appreciate its flexibility in space utilisation. Extensions, conversions, additional storeys and reinforcements are all easily possible with steel structures.
