About the CPD: Costing Structural Steelwork

Cost is a fundamental consideration when selecting the material and form of a building’s structural frame. This is a key decision to be made early in the design process, and should be based on realistic project-specific costings. This CPD article highlights the importance of realistic steel pricing and discusses cost planning through the RIBA design stages. It presents indicative cost ranges by building type and examines the key cost drivers that must be considered in order to tailor cost information on structural steel to specific projects. These key cost drivers include:

  • Function, sector and building type
  • Form, site conditions and complexity
  • Location, logistics and access
