Renovation with Steel

Whether they are major or more modest, rehabilitations are carried out in the heart of cities in very confined urban environments. They entail restricted site access, awkward handling arrangements and limited storage capacity. Steel solutions provide builders with a breath of oxygen in these often difficult environments.

Furthermore, reductions in permissible load distribution, limits on storey heights and available space inherited from the existing structure, render steel solutions indispensable. Difficult-to-access gap sites at the heart of island sites or rooftop extensions of existing buildings... steel provides efficient, lightweight solutions with surprising constructability.
