Our years of experience back up our full commitment to producing the highest quality metal parts for commercial and civil construction.
At Pyramid Engineering we will work closely with your team to ensure that any steelwork used in your project is of the highest quality. Our years of experience providing structural steel in a wide range of projects will ensure the best outcomes possible.
To find out how custom metal fabrication can function for your architectural project, contact Pyramid Engineering via phone, email, or chat links. We strive to respond promptly to customer queries, often within 24 hours or less.
Advantages of steel fabrication for construction
In the world of residential and light commercial construction, steel fabrication has proved to be a game changer, offering unparalleled benefits to both builders and owners. Here are some of the reasons steel is increasingly becoming the material of choice for many applications:
- Durability and Strength: Steel’s inherent strength leads to structures that are more resistant to natural forces like earthquakes, high winds, and for those in the south, heavy snow. Steel’s resistance to pests, mould, and rot further adds to its longevity.
- Design Flexibility: Steel’s versatility allows for innovative and complex architectural designs. Its ability to span long distances without support columns opens up possibilities for larger, open living spaces and creative layouts.
- Sustainability: Steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world, making it an eco-friendly option. The use of steel reduces waste during construction and promotes sustainable practices.
- Speed of construction: Steel sections are usually fabricated offsite and delivered to the construction site when needed. This can significantly speed up the construction process.
- Cost Effective: While the initial cost of steel may be more expensive than some traditional materials, its strength, durability, and versatility can lead to lower construction costs and much reduced long-term maintenance costs.
- Fire resistance: Steel’s non-combustible nature enhances the safety of a building, offering peace of mind to occupants and owners.
- Low Maintenance: Unlike wood, steel doesn’t warp, split, crack or creep, reducing the need for repairs and maintenance over time.
- Weight advantage: The high strength-to-weight ratio of fabricated steel members means that lighter-weight structures can be designed without compromising on strength. This can positively impact the cost and complexity of foundations and earthworks.
- Consistent Quality: Steel offers uniformity in its composition and size, unlike natural materials, which can vary considerably. This ensures reliability in performance and quality.
Steel is one of the most common materials used in metal fabrication for its strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness. The practicality of steel means it is the base for a variety of building applications, such as structural steel beams, supports and trusses, T-bars, handrails, display stands, and custom doors.
Stainless steel fabrication
Compared to ordinary steel, stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, staining, and rusting, making it the ideal choice for projects where hygiene and appearance are vital. It is also the best option for use in a job where the fabrication may be exposed to moisture, such as in a maritime site.
Lightweight and corrosion-resistant, aluminium is a popular custom fabrication solution for outdoor applications where weight is a concern, such as in the transport and electricity industries. The material is gaining traction in construction use due to its resistant properties and thermal efficiency.
