Structural steel is one of the most commonly used construction materials in the building industry. There is a variety of hot-rolled steel shapes that can be designed to fit almost any construction project.
The steel’s properties and design specifications are laid out by the American Institute of Steel Construction. Inside their nationally accepted Steel Construction Manual, you will find most of the common steel shapes as shown.
When it comes to the design and sizing of structural steel, a licensed structural engineer should always be involved. If you think you may need structural steel in your next building project, give us a call today!
