The environmental impacts of using steel are significantly lower than using timber in construction.
It has been proven that material waste is reduced when using modern forms of building compared with traditional methods1. With Central Steel Framing, our offsite manufacturing approach leads to less material waste as our processes are designed to minimise defects and unused materials are recycled for the next project.
A 186m2 house uses 40 to 50 or more trees - approximately 1 acre of trees. However, if the same house is built with steel, it is equivalent to around 6 scrapped cars.
