Building in Steel – Understanding the Costs and Timelines
When it comes to construction projects in Southern Africa, choosing the right building materials is crucial for managing costs and timelines efficiently. In this regard, steel structures, championed by SpanAfrica since 1992, have emerged as a cost-effective and efficient solution for a wide range of construction needs.
Why Steel Structures?
Steel structures offer several advantages, including durability, flexibility, and speed of assembly. As a result, they are often more affordable than traditional construction methods if one were to understand the full umbrella of construction costs.
SpanAfrica’s experience across over 4150 projects in sectors like agriculture, industrial, commercial and education, underlines our proficiency in creating steel structures that are not only cost-effective but also tailored to the unique needs of each project.
Reduced Construction Time
One of the standout benefits of steel buildings is the potential for reduced construction time. Since many components can be prefabricated off-site in SpanAfrica’s advanced factory and warehouse, on-site construction time is significantly lowered. This efficiency not only reduces costs money but can also accelerate project timeframes.
Lower Maintenance Costs
Steel structures are known for their low maintenance requirements, which translates to long-term savings. In a climate like Southern Africa, where harsh weather conditions can take a toll on buildings, the durability of steel and sheeting is a significant advantage. SpanAfrica’s designs prioritise materials and construction methods that withstand harsh weather conditions, ensuring long-term savings for clients.
Our expert team, with over 120 years of collective experience in the structural steel industry, ensures that each project benefits from its extensive knowledge in design, fabrication, and installation, making maintenance a hassle-free experience for clients.
When considering construction projects in Southern Africa, it’s essential to consider the long-term cost savings and efficiency benefits of using steel structures. This choice can lead to more affordable and timely construction while ensuring the durability required to withstand the region’s challenges.
