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, industrial, retail, and mixed-use buildings.
This article focuses on the retail sector, examining the process of cost planning throughout the design stages, the key steel framing cost drivers for retail buildings, and providing a detailed cost model based on an actual supermarket building.
The feature appeared in the 19th January 2018 edition of Building magazine and can be downloaded through the link below:
