design & construction – Steel / Mixed Construction

D&c has the reputation for excellence in the custom design, engineering, fabrication and erection of a wide variety of steel frame buildings and structures.

For years building owners, designers, architects, and general contractors have opted for metal in commercial construction projects over other materials for its energy efficiency, low maintenance, and durability. Increasingly, however, metal’s other key attributes—its striking beauty, clean look, and versatility in both new and retrofit construction—are helping to firmly establish metal as the material of choice for residential, commercial and education building projects.

Although it plays a key role in setting industry-wide trends in sustainability and green design, metal also holds advantages over other materials in addressing day-to-day concerns. For example, metal walls can help you save on cost, or can be custom-engineered to bring you quickly up to speed on code requirements. Plus, metal products are flexible—a must for designing tight or complex spaces—an array of metal types are available, both coated and uncoated. With metal, building design options are endless.

D&c ‘s steel structures implement to new buildings, including adding onto existing buildings, apartment blocks, commercial and industrial buildings and warehouses.
