Differences Between Steel Structure and Concrete Buildings

The housing construction in our country has been dominated by reinforced concrete for a long time, and people have not realized what is wrong with the concrete houses that have been used for generations. However, as time goes by, the earth's resources are decreasing, and buildings tend to focus on energy saving and land saving. People are increasingly accepting steel structure buildings, so what are the differences between steel structures and concrete buildings?

  • Foundation: The overall weight of the steel structure building is light, less material is used, and the loading surface of the section steel is 20% smaller than that of the concrete column, which increases the actual usable area of the building. Due to the reduced weight of the steel structure, less soil is used for foundation construction, less damage to land resources, and the ecological environment is protected. The steel structure foundation is about half of the concrete structure, which can greatly reduce the foundation cost.
  • Dry construction saves water, occupies less land, produces less noise and less dust.
  • The use of concrete and bricks is reduced, the construction speed is fast, and the overall cost is low.
  • The self-weight is reduced, the amount of soil taken for foundation construction is small, and the damage to land resources is small. Steel structure buildings whose service life has expired will generate less solid waste when demolished, and the recycling price of scrap steel will be high.
  • Construction period: The steel structure is a fully industrialized product. After the steel components are completed, they can be assembled at the destination, which is convenient and fast. Concrete buildings need to consider the weather and site environment. The construction speed of steel structures is fast, and the construction period is at least one-third shorter than that of traditional concrete buildings.
  • Earthquake resistance: The main frame of the steel structure is mainly made of hot-rolled H-shaped steel, and its structure is scientific and reasonable. It has good plasticity and flexibility, high structural stability and strong ability to resist natural disasters, and is especially suitable for some building structures with multiple earthquake occurrence zones.
  • Economic benefits: It is a fully industrialized product, driving a series of industrial chains such as real estate, building materials, and hardware. Compared with concrete buildings, steel structures have advantages in terms of use, design, construction and comprehensive economy. The steel structure not only has a fast construction speed and a small footprint, but also is suitable for all-day construction, doubles the capital turnover rate, reduces financial costs, and thus saves investment.

In need of steel structure supply?

I believe that through reading the above, you have already understood that in the present and future of resource conservation, concrete buildings no longer meet the needs of resource recycling and sustainable economic development. Steel structures still cater to the development needs of modern buildings in many ways, and can better meet the needs of people's production and life in the future. For any more information, please kindly contact us immediately.
