As taken from the Bluewater View News, April 2018:
Have you stopped by the construction site lately?
Watch for a dramatic transformation in Port Huron’s skyline. Big changes are coming to the building site this week as crews begin erection of the structural steel beams. Drive by the building site to see all the action.
How does the process work?
Steel erection involves the positioning, aligning, and securing of steel beams and columns to form a complete frame for the building. In addition, the process of steel erection also includes the installation of metal decking for each floor. This initial installation process moves fast, and the first three floors will go up very quickly. Then it may seem like a pause in activity as the framework is aligned and each component is bolted and welded together. Not nearly as impressive as moving large steel beams but just as important! The process is repeated until we reach the rooftop.
Benefits of structural steel
Structural steel is pre-engineered to design specs and ready to be erected once it arrives on site. This makes for a much quicker build and a lighter weight building. Steel framed structures can withstand high winds, heavy snow loads, fire, and seismic activities, and are resistant to pests and decay. Steel is a versatile building material, which has led to its inclusion in nearly every stage of the construction process from framing and floor joists, to roofing materials.
