Steel for Life has partnered with Building magazine and Aecom on a quarterly series titled “Costing Steelwork”.
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 industrial sector, examining the process of cost planning throughout the design stages, the key steel framing cost drivers for industrial buildings, and providing a detailed cost model based on an actual industrial building.
The feature appeared in the 20th October 2017 edition of Building magazine and can be downloaded through the link below:
