Whether it’s highways, railways, roads or pedestrian bridges, many of these constructions are made of steel, which offers the following advantages over other materials:

  • high strength and low weight
  • excellent formability and weldability
  • long service lifetime
  • ease of repair to damaged areas.

Hydraulic steel construction is another branch of steel construction. This includes the construction of floodgates, dock gates, bottom outlets of dams, weir closures and ship lifts.

Classic arena and stadium constructions are the third focus of steel construction. The advantage here lies in the comparatively short planning and construction times, compared to other building materials.
