Steel is one of the most sustainable building materials in the world. Steel has great historical performance in earthquakes. When the ground shakes, steel provides safe, reliable and ductile structures.

Benefits and reasons for using steel

  • 100% recyclable
  • Fire safety and non-combustible - does not burn nor contribute fuel
  • Not vulnerable to termites or any type of fungi or organism, including mould
  • Inorganic - will not rot, warp, split, crack or creep
  • Dimensionally stable - does not expand or contract with moisture content
  • Consistent material quality - produced in strict accordance with national standards
  • High strength results in safer structures, less maintenance and slower aging of structure
  • Stronger connections, screwed versus nailed
  • Less probability of foundation problems - less weight results in less movement, damage in high winds and/or an earthquake
  • Lighter structure with stronger connections results in less seismic force
