Price Optimisation of Structural Steel Fire Protection

As often as not with construction, a primary consideration is price, thus, price optimisation involves customising steel selection on a steel frame building so that the reduction in passive fire protection cost is far greater than the cost to increase the weight of steel to achieve similar outcomes. However, as a newer field of speciality in the overall construction industry, much remains unknown or misunderstood with regards to how to apply fire protection and indeed, how much is required for both optimal performance at an optimal price. The context of this piece is to prove the benefits of conscious steel selection with fire rating in mind. 

The Advantages of Off-Site Application

Offsite construction (often referred to as modular construction) is the technology-driven intersection of design, fabrication and pre-planning processes for construction.
In this piece, we wanted to discuss the advantages of modular construction and how fire rating can be a piovtal component in safeguarding your structure and doing it for less.
