Construction

Steel saves energy


More Recycling
Improved Efficiencies
Higher strength materials

Each year the Steel industry saves


Enough energy to power

18 million homes

possible by

Castellating
steel beams

History of

Castellated Beams
Castellation is a
Fabrication method
Used to expand
A standard shape

History of

Castellated Beams
Castellated beams were originally
developed To improve efficiency
during steel shortages
in the US and Europe.

Cellular Fabrication

Castellation
results in:
A beam that is
50% Deeper and 50% Stronger
Than the original member

without weight gain.

That can translate


To total structure
Weight savings of

20% to 50%
Over traditional
construction

Creating Curves

Radius Limitations
Apply

Curves can be formed simply as part of the


manufacturing process.

Creating Tapers

By cutting the web along a diagonal


a tapered section can be formed.

Steel Advantages

Save 20% of the weight of wide flange


And 50% of the weight of concrete
Gain openness and light for security
Save 25% to 35% of initial cost
Lower long term maintenance costs

Summation

Long Span Design


Lighter Weight Building materials reduce on-site
crane requirements.
Longer spans will Minimize Columns
Reducing Number of Pieces Reduces Fabrication
Costs.
Speed of Construction Reduces Time Dependent
Costs.
Reduce Foundation Requirements

Proper Detailing is Critical to Final Appearance.
Identify Special Coating and Handling
Requirements
Clearly State Acceptance Criteria.
Start with Realistic Expectations.
Keep in mind Scale depending on height.
Allow adequate budget for Extra Costs Associated.
