Think of steelwork used in construction, and no doubt your first thought would turn to structural steelwork such as RSJs, steel framework etc. However, as buildings compete to be more and more aesthetically pleasing, steelwork is more frequently being used as an architectural feature. Architects are increasingly using steelwork to create the illusion of space and light by creating large open internal spaces that provide the “wow-factor”.
Architectural steelwork, or feature steelwork, covers a variety of pieces, from intricate handrails and banisters to practical walkways and ramps.
Make a statement with architectural steelwork
Where previously steelwork was something that was necessary but more likely to be covered by plasterboard or brickwork, architects are increasingly choosing structural steelwork that is on show and more pleasing to the eye.
Look around any city or out of town development. Construction companies are building transportation hubs, retail outlets, hotels and even apartment blocks using structural steelwork as an architectural statement. Take a look at our projects section to see the images from our recent work providing the steelwork for King’s Cross Station’s new taxi rank.
