The Importance Of Steel Fabrication In Construction

The construction industry has evolved significantly and with it, many new and improved methods including steel fabrication. If you think about skyscrapers, warehouses and shopping malls, almost every aspect in construction consists of structural steel. Steel framed structures are common across many construction projects including garages, residential properties and short-term temporary structures.

Steel fabrication is used to create various components and products with different qualities for different applications. Fact is, structural steelwork has been the primary choice for most builders, engineers, contractors and structural steel fabricators. Many industries rely on steel fabrication because of the quality, reliability, flexibility, cost effectiveness and sustainability that it offers.

Structural Steel Fabrication At PRV Engineering

Structural steel fabrication involves a complex process of turning steel into fabricated products for a construction project or other industrial applications. Structural steel has been a first choice in all types of construction and for quite some time. Even the smallest project incorporates steel because it offers faster construction among many other benefits.

The structural steel fabrication and welding process is demanding and you should only consult experienced fabricators. A less experienced company may not be able to properly perform the tasks at hand which means they could compromise the product viability. Welding and fabricating structural steel requires special expertise that only a few companies share, PRV Engineering is right up there.

Metalwork Fabrication and Construction

metalwork fabrication

Metalwork fabrication is a broad term referring to processes involving cutting, shaping or moulding metals into a final product. It is a specialist process that requires expertly trained staff and cutting-edge machinery. Metal components are widely available in a variety of dimensions and materials including sheet metal, metal rods and metal bars.

For the most part, good metalwork fabrication shops can produce products in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Manufacturers often require a non-standard component or a unique metal product which means they need custom fabrication services. It provides them with design and production assistance for built-to-order parts. Continue reading

Construction and Technology Connecting Europe To Africa

The world of construction and technology is advancing at a rapid pace achieving what no-one thought possible only a few years ago. A split-pylon concept bridge is the focus of an EPSRC-funded project at Sheffield and Brunel University. Partnering with a long span bridge expert, Ian Firth, the team of UK engineers used mathematical modelling techniques to identify new bridge designs. They claim that it could beat the current record of a 2 km single span bridge.

Newly identified bridge structures could allow for the construction of significantly longer bridges in the near future. The possibility to make a crossing over the Strait of Gibraltar, from the Iberian Peninsula to Morocco is very real. Continue reading
