We’ve put together some quick-fire facts to give you some insights into steel as a building material. This will make it easier when you are making key decisions for your build or renovation.

Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material. This strength is something that will benefit the overall design and make it an ideal material to use in the often harsh Australian conditions.


Steel is durable and versatile. This allows it to be used in many ways to create large spans, give high-end finishes or offer maximum protection from the environment. When you come to use steel it will open up the scope to create memorable designs and spaces.


Steel is the world’s most recyclable material. It can be recycled again and again without comprising on quality and then reused and repurposed, enabling its participation in the circular economy. Its high strength and reinforcing capacity enable the reduction of construction material use, conserving energy and resources, and allows futureproofing of structures to be modified or extended later.
