When you look at a building as a whole object – at every aspect of the way it is designed, constructed and used – you can see enormous, transformational opportunities through the use of steel. That concept is at the heart of the Steligence® philosophy.
By treating a building as a holistic entity and bringing together our innovation with the architects, engineers and construction experts involved in the process as a whole, from the design stage all the way to the construction, we can create enormous sustainability and efficiency gains.
And we can create new kinds of buildings, with flexible, transformable uses. It is an opportunity to put construction at the centre of the circular economy, and to build a sustainable business around a sustainable construction industry that delivers for future generations.
Steel technology that brings benefits to customers and society
Steligence® gives architects and engineers access to real advances in steel technology. And it enables them to take maximum advantage of those solutions by considering the lifecycle, the recyclability and, ultimately, the re-usability of a building and its components at the earliest stage in the design process.
That means buildings designed using the Steligence® philosophy are quicker to assemble and potentially easier to disassemble. This will lead to significant efficiencies and cost savings. Innovative steel solutions also enable more building storeys within a given height than with traditional building systems and materials, reduced costs for foundations because of the lower weight of steel and composite buildings, and far longer uninterrupted spans between columns, meaning the internal floorspace is more easily adaptable to any current or future use.
