Durability and long-term consistent performance – that’s what you get with steel. Reduced structural capacity due to dry-rot, termites, or mold will not compromise a steel structure in an earthquake.
Modern steel has rapidly become one of the most energy efﬁcient building materials to produce.Cold-formed steel (CFS) buildings can be some of the highest performing buildings. CFS buildings have been built to Energy Star status, and can meet LEED requirements and other green building programs and standards.
Steel is one of the most sustainable building materials in the world. The industry has embraced the common sense approach that reducing its impact on the environment is not only the right thing to do, but it makes economic sense.
