Steel framed construction is fast gaining popularity due to relatively simple and standard designs, structural form for multi-storey buildings and great flexibility.
 
Global Steel Company has emerged as one of the strongest contenders against the conventional concrete construction line, eliminating the inefficiency of the shear wall and the central portion while consolidating the support members with a much stronger material - Steel. This enables the skyscraper with both vertical and horizontal support, expediting development and is now globally accepted.
 
In keeping with the current times and the global market, GSC has adapted towards the new sustainable construction methods and has mastered them with precision. Our pre-engineered light-gauge steel is being used for making new concept buildings using the new 'green material' - Steel.
 
At GSC, we design modern steel framed buildings on the principle of the structure as an independent load-bearing frame, carrying both vertical and lateral loads down to the building foundations. This form of construction makes possible the creation of large column-free internal spaces which can be divided by interchangeable partitions and by eliminating the external wall as a load-bearing element, allowing the development of large window areas, curtain walling and cladding systems guaranteeing our customers the best possible experience.
 
Key Components:
The individual contributions of major components to the overall building cost can vary significantly with our building function, size and architectural treatment. However they are generally within the following ranges:
 
Foundations - 5% to 10%
Steel Skeleton - 10% to 20%
Floor Structure - 5% to 10%
Cladding/Finishes - 15% to 40%
Services - 15% to 40%
 
Adaptability
In recent years, our endeavour has been to provide fire protection and to develop fast and efficient methods of construction; ensuring superior building services and exclusive cladding system. However, for GSC, the choice of the structural system still remains the top priority, guaranteeing a design that is coherent and successful.
 
 
Versatility
Our multi-storey steel-framed buildings can adapt to a wide range of architectural styles and are in turn used for multiple purposes including:
 
Office Developments
Shopping Centres
Car Parks
Schools And Universities
Hospitals And Hotels
 
Although the basic anatomy of each building is similar, they may have different requirements for column grid, services, and internal/external finishes. For example, a car park may be designed with floors of moderate spans and will have minimal requirements for cladding, finishes and services; whereas a prestige office development may need large column-free areas with air conditioning and under-floor cabling for computers.
 
Cost Efficiency
It is clear that the cost of the structure is relatively smaller compared to the total cost of the building. Consequently it is often beneficial to use a somewhat more expensive structural solution if other costs can be reduced as a result. For example, we use longer span beams in order to provide greater flexibility; and install shallow floors to facilitate service installation and reduce cladding costs. These considerations are made by our group of experts keeping in mind the projected life of the building, recognising that will often involve major refurbishment including replacement of services, fittings, and possibly envelope.
 
When considering the cost of the structure, we understand that it is important to recognise the weight of the material is less important than processing costs associated with the construction.
 
Unlike other companies, our material costs represent only 30-40 percent of the total cost of structural steelwork. The remaining 60-70 percent is accounted for in the design, detailing, fabrication, erection and protection.
 
Hence allowing greater standardisation, reduced fabrication costs and therefore resulting in the most economic overall system. Due to this, our unique Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEB) are witnessing higher growth compared to both Indian steel and Indian construction GDPs.
