Building envelope and decking products
Achieving sustainable construction with steel building envelope and decking products
Having decided that a new build is the most sustainable option, the design of a sustainable building envelope features a raft of new considerations to take into account.
How do we design for resilience and adaptability to ensure the longest life? How will the building be designed for disassembly and reuse? And what end of life options are available to ensure efficient use of materials, and lowest whole life carbon values?
Consideration also needs to be given to the sourcing of the products. Where are they made? Is the supply chain responsible?
Building envelope and decking products from Tata Steel help to deliver energy efficient buildings that optimise the use of resources.
Steel products deliver strong, lightweight floor decks and building envelopes, reducing structural loads and keeping foundations to a minimum. And, at the end of a building’s life, they can be reused, recycled or remanufactured to deliver long-term sustainability.
Tata Steel are partners in a range of initiatives and innovation schemes showing how the construction industry can deliver the solutions necessary for a circular economy and a sustainable future. In addition, a range of digital tools help specifiers to select steel products with confidence, and in the knowledge that all have been responsibly sourced and can be traced throughout the supply chain.
