Multi-Storey Steel Building | Commercial Building Structure Model Tekla 2017

This is a heavy steel structure of a commercial building, commercial sector demands buildings that are rapid to construct, of high quality, flexible and adaptable in application. Steel, and in particular composite construction, has achieved over 70% market share in construction industry all over the world especially in the UK, where the benefits of long span; service integration; speed of construction; improved quality; and reduced environmental impact are widely recognized


Summary of the economic benefits of steel construction in office buildings

Speed of construction

20 to 30% reduction in construction time relative to site-intensive construction, depending on the scale of the project.

The economic benefit depends on the business operation. In terms of overall building cost, a saving of 1% in interest charges, and 2% in early rental or use of the space is predicted.

Site management costs

Site management costs are reduced because of the shorter construction period, and the packaged nature of the construction process.

Site management costs can be reduced by 20 to 30% which can lead to a 3 to 4% saving in terms of overall building cost.

Service integration

The integration of services in the structural zone leads to reduction of 100 to 300mm in floor to floor zone and hence to savings in cladding cost.

A 5% reduction in floor to floor height can lead to one additional floor in 20, and to a similar reduction in cladding cost, which is equivalent to about 1% in total building cost.


Steel construction is less than half the weight of an equivalent concrete structure, which is equivalent to a 30% reduction in overall foundation loads.

Foundation costs depend on the sub-structure and factors such as underground services and represent up to 5% of the building cost . A 30% reduction in foundation loads can lead to a significant overall saving in terms of construction cost.

Column free space

Long span steel construction provides more flexible use of space, which depends on the function of the building and its future uses.

A large column in the middle of the space leads to a loss of space of approximately 1m2, which represents about 1% of the floor area, and may lead to an equivalent loss of rental income.


With regard to steel column installation, due to large weight and great length of columns, it is impossible to carry out one-time production and transportation. Therefore, you will need to adopt subsection manufacturing process, and then be assembled at construction site. Steel member transportation and site installation of this structures has taken into account, by making sure all steel members are in transportable lengths, easily assembled on site.

Building floor plan dimensions: 47m x 37m

No. of floors: 17 in number
