Do I need a structural steelworker for my building project?

Steel is an essential part of the foundations of any building. Also, thanks to the current trend for minimalist design, steel has also become somewhat fashionable, with steel staircases, railings, gates, window bars, balustrades and balconies all growing in popularity.

However, if you’re interested in embarking upon a home improvement project that requires steelwork, you need the expertise of a structural steelworker.

Steelworking requires physical strength and technical know-how, meaning DIY is out of the question. It’s important to find an experienced tradesman to handle any structural steelwork job you may have. Here at HaMuch, we can help.

What do steelwork contractors do?

A professional steelworker knows how to cut and weld steel to create a host of different structures. Here are a few things a steelworker can do for you:

  • Building a structural framework: One of the primary responsibilities of a steelworker is the erection of the structural steel framework needed to erect a building.
  • Assembling steel components: Steelworkers assemble steel components to create frames, joining the steel components together by welding or bolting them and taking care to ensure that they are correctly aligned.
  • Connecting steel structures: A steelworker uses tape measures, arc welders, oxy-acetylene torches and connecting bars to connect beams, girders, and columns.
  • Reinforcing concrete: Steelworkers use different types of steel to reinforce concrete structures and foundations.
  • Lifting steel pieces: A steelworker may also need to lift pieces of steel to where they are required, e.g. for upper floor constructions. This is a specialist task that requires expertise and care.
  • Interpreting blueprints: Steelworkers work with architects, and are tasked with aligning all structures to fit a blueprint’s requirement.
  • Building steel girders: Steelworkers are expert welders. They can make and weld any steel piece or material, including girders and columns.
  • Repairing infrastructure: Steelworkers can repair any faulty steel infrastructure.
