Case studies on residential buildings using steel (P328)

This publication presents a series of Case Studies that illustrate the use of steel in meeting the demands of the residential building sector for more efficient, adaptable and higher quality buildings, especially in inner city locations. (Published 2003)
SKU: P328
The residential building sector demands more efficient, adaptable and higher quality buildings, especially to meet the contraints of construction in inner city locations.  The greatest opportunities and challenges lie in the medium-rise sector, as pressure to build to a higher density and on 'brown field' or tight inner city sites increase. 
A wide range of steel technologies is available to meet the demands of the multi-storey residential sector and are covered in this series of Case Studies of recent ptojects. Importantly a 'mix' of technologies may be used to achieve optimised design and better value in steel.
The steel technologies covered by the case studies are: 
  • Light Steel Framing
  • Modular Construction
  • Slimdek and Slimflor
  • Composite Construction
