Structural steel gives the architect the freedom to create any complex design as it can be accomplished and built. The creative complex designs that are made possible with the use of structural steel also enhance the aesthetic quality of the building. The advantages of using structural steel are varied. From reducing the duration of construction to high strength and low cost to innovation and reliability and efficiency, it is preferred by builders and designers. It also brings with it the option to modify a building that has already been constructed. Sometimes the buildings that are built may need to be modified to accommodate more weight or there might be a requirement for stairs or space for machinery. These modifications are made easy with low costs. These buildings are also lighter and hence the building does not require a costly foundation.
