There are several important factors to consider when designing and implementing residential architectural steelwork:

  1. Load-bearing capabilities: The structural integrity of the steelwork must be able to support the weight of the building and its occupants, as well as any additional loads such as snow or wind.
  2. Durability: Residential steelwork must be able to withstand the elements and resist corrosion. Hot-dip galvanization or powder coating are some of the ways to protect steel from rust and corrosion.
  3. Aesthetics: The design of the steelwork should complement the overall aesthetic of the building and its surroundings.
  4. Cost-efficiency: The use of steel can be more cost-efficient than other materials, as it is lightweight and easy to work with, and also can be prefabricated in a factory and then assembled on site, which can save time and money.
  5. Safety: The steelwork must be designed and installed with safety in mind, and must meet all local building codes and safety regulations.
  6. Energy-efficiency: The steelwork can be designed to enhance the building’s energy efficiency, such as by incorporating insulation or using thermally broken steel sections.
  7. Flexibility: Steel can be easily modified or adapted to accommodate changes in the building’s layout or function, making it a versatile and adaptable material for residential architectural applications.
  8. Sustainable: Steel is a recyclable material, which makes it an environmentally friendly option for residential architectural steelwork.

Residential architectural steelwork deals with both standardised as well as tailored steel building for the house building sector. This includes the building of staircases, Wrightfield designs and manufactures both internal and external steel staircases. As well as the creation of staircases we also build the rail systems and accompanying balustrades allowing for a fully integrated design.

Residential architectural steelwork is the foundation for any residential building, providing the framework for the creation of any home. Wrightfield regularly completes complex architectural steelwork commissions allowing us to be a competitive force in steelworks.
