You only have to look into the current state of the construction industry to realize one indomitable fact: future steel buildings are the here and now. Furthermore, steel buildings are here to stay, and the numerous areas of business and industry–not to mention the residential sector–stand to gain considerable benefits from adopting this innovative construction method.
We say ‘innovative’ because steel building construction is undoubtedly one of the most innovative and exciting developments in the construction industry. But steel building design has actually been around since the dawn of the Industrial Age. Of course, steel buildings back at the turn of the 20th century were largely rudimentary and functional, with few of the features and capabilities that we routinely take for granted today. Nevertheless, the sheer innovation exhibited by those early steel structures is undeniable, and it is good to see that that same spirit of innovation is a large part of what makes the current crop of future steel buildings some of the most exciting examples of modern-day construction.
