Why Structural Steel Framework Is Number One

structural steelStructural steel is a type of steel used in construction and manufacturing. It has been the primary choice for most builders, engineers, contractors and structural steel fabricators. So many industries rely on steel products and fabrication services due its quality and reliability.

PRV Engineering has been supplying structural steelwork and steel fabrications into the construction industry for over twenty years. We manufacture and install high quality products including bespoke platforms, balconies, balustrades and handrails in both mild steel and stainless steel. Continue reading

Advantages of Steel Framed Building Construction

steel framed building construction siteAdvances in building construction have introduced many new and improved options including the use of steel framed building construction. These steel structures are formed through steel framework fabrication. The advantages of steel as a structural design material are well documented. Advantages include the strength-weight ratio that allows steel to bear great weights and ductility, which is the ability to withstand stress for a long period of time and bend without breaking.

Why go for steel framework?
All these same advantages are found in steel frameworks, however the use of steel frames in general has many advantages. Continue reading

Building is the future for PRV Engineering

Twelve months on from the installation of the company’s new plating facility, managing director Simon Jones is confident that 2014 will see a repeat performance.

With the company focussed on the construction industry, PRV Engineering is seeking to not only maintain its high standards, but to add a number of new contracts to the order book.

Simon said; “We had our best ever year in 2013, turning over around £4.1million. The plan for this year is very much the same. We want to keep developing and providing the ‘One stop shop’ service on which we pride ourselves. Continue reading

Design and construction of single storey buildings

Steel framework imageSingle storey buildings are by far the largest sector of the UK structural steelwork market, representing nearly two thirds of total activity.

These buildings are typically used for workshops, factories, industrial warehouses, distribution warehouses and retail warehouses. Referred to colloquially as ‘Sheds’ sizes vary from small workshops of just a few thousand square feet up to distribution warehouses covering over one million square feet.

Similar construction techniques are used in all of these buildings with Industrial type buildings usually having relatively simple elevations with metal cladding panels, either full height or down to a brickwork dado rail. Retail developments and other statement projects tend to have much more complex elevational treatments, incorporating various materials and features and using combinations of cladding panels with different orientations, profiles and colours.
