Steel Buldings - Better For the Environment?

·         Steel buildings don’t require cutting down valuable forests.
·         Metal buildings manufacturers use materials with a high proportion of recycled content
·         Employ sustainable building design and construction
·         Buildings erect in less time than conventional building construction.
·         Steel buildings are fire resistant so they can lower insurance costs
·         They are rust resistant and virtually maintenance free
  • Steel manufacturers employ energy efficient methods in steel production that help to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Steel can be recycled over and over again without loss of the quality of the steel
  • Most steel produced in the United States uses recycled material
