The Future is Green

         Steel Core Homes understands the ‘need for change’ and to become more aware of the environment and the ever increasing impacts placed upon it. That is why Steel Core Homes makes every conceivable effort to ensure are structures are composed of environmentally friendly products that can be recycled, time and time again.

     ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY STEEL CONSTRUCTION

  • Steel is basically a clean, user-friendly material - no dust, no spillage, little waste etc - and consequently no equipment employed to counteract such problems.
  • Steel can be reused, relocated or recycled once its use has been overtaken by events. Use is therefore responsible in environmental terms.
  • The slender profile of steel, its strength and light-weight makes it an ideal option and no cranes are required to assemble the framework, which saves time and money.
  • What would you prefer to do, chop down 40 to 50 trees or recycle 6 cars? That`s what it takes to prefabricate a steel frame for the average house.
  • Many appreciate the simplicity of the screw-together framing, especially as there is no need for special tools.
  • The light weight steel, now used in house frames, is ideal for environmentally sensitive sites as there is minimum disruption and disturbance to the native vegetation. It is particularly suited to sloping sites where access is difficult.

     ENERGY EFFICIENCY

  • Steel-framed buildings can be very energy-efficient. The depth of steel beams also provides a wider space for insulation.
  • Steel frame buildings do not settle or warp remaining more airtight.
  • Design flexibility of steel frame buildings enables architects to focus on energy-efficient housing features.

 

Steel is 100% recyclable. Light weight steel is ‘green’ being the most recycled product in the world!
