Why Steel frame construction? Avoid high construction site costs:

Due to the quick assembly and accurate preparation of the steel frame, you can save as much as 40% time compared to traditional construction methods.

Steel frame owes its popularity mainly to its speed, because saving time means saving money.

The basis for sustainable living:

Why is steel frame construction sustainable? Steel is 100% recyclable. beSteel therefore applies the cradle-to-cradle philosophy to its production process. Materials can be fully recycled and reused.

The steel frame is extremely suitable for building a near-zero energy house, the current energy standards are met without any problem.

Excellent quality:

Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any material and offers excellent resistance to unexpected stress. Despite the light weight, there is no loss of strength.

No limitation in the design:

The architect has carte blanche in the design of the building. The light construction ensures large spans are possible & complex shapes can be translated into reality.

Steel frame construction can be used for all types of construction, even the most daring. (house, apartment building, height increase, expansion & innovation)

Excess loads are out of the question

Thanks to the light weight of the steel frame, it is possible to build in unusual places. This makes the method perfect for height increases, apartment buildings, or renovations of (very) old buildings. The impact on the foundation is 30% less than that of brick.

Fully in line with current energy standards:

Steel frame constructions meet the regulations and requirements for fire resistance and thermal/acoustic insulation. Thanks to off-site production, we can guarantee a flawless end result.

Environmentally-friendly in execution:

Construction sites will be free of waste, and remain dry and dust free. Because the steel frame is 100% custom made, little or no storage space is required & waste is reduced to a minimum.
