Steel for Life is partnering with Building magazine and Aecom on a new quarterly series titled “Costing Steelwork” which replaces the existing “Steel Insight” series.
Published each quarter, it will examine the key cost drivers for different sectors, provide a building type-specific cost comparison and include a cost table, which indicates cost ranges for various frame types.
The series will comprise studies into office, education, mixed-use, retail and industrial buildings.
This article focuses on the offices sector, examining the process of cost planning throughout the design stages, the key steel framing cost drivers for office buildings, and providing a detailed cost model based on an actual office building.
The feature appeared in the 28th April 2017 edition of Building magazine and can be downloaded through the link below:
