steel framing Green with Metal

The demand for environmentally-friendly construction products and practices, or green metal building, has accelerated in recent years. Steel Depot is taking a leadership role in this initiative through innovation and expert consultation in the use of metal construction products and processes.

The American Iron and Steel Institute reports that steel is the most recycled material in North America. However, green construction ideas go far beyond recycling. A metal building’s design and construction methods, its end use and occupants’ productivity, as well as maintenance requirements throughout the life of the building are among the many considerations that have changed the way Steel Depot works with our builders and designers. It has also been the catalyst for developing programs to help our products’ users meet their green metal building objectives. Use this section to learn more about how building green can work for you.
