Benefits of Steel for Oil & Gas Building Construction
A major factor when selecting steel as your building material is the consideration that steel is fire resistant. This non-combustible option far exceeds the safety offerings of wood frame buildings or fabric structures, making it the obvious building choice in an oil and gas construction situation.
The customization options during the design process can allow for vents or exhaust fans as needed, meeting the ventilation requirements often encountered in this industry.
The design of steel buildings leaves them easily expandable for future operations, allowing your infrastructure to easily grow as you do.
Oil and gas building construction also faces unique demands when it comes to equipment accommodation, including top-running or underhung cranes. The general design of steel buildings allow for higher ceiling clearances to fit these needs.
Oil and gas buildings face unique challenges and extreme work conditions during their daily use. The strength and durability of steel buildings is a huge benefit to the lifespan of the structure, which means your building has been built to last. Additionally these buildings require little to no maintenance.
