OMK Claims of 35% Savings by High Strength Steel Structures

Leading Russian supplier of pipes and steel structures for the construction industry United Metallurgical Company OMK has offered construction companies the opportunity to reduce costs on steel structures by an average of 35% by using rolled metal of higher strength classes. The proposal was sent to the address of all non-profit partnerships according to the NOSTROY register, self-regulatory organizations of Russia, whose members are more than 95 thousand construction companies. Now each of them has the opportunity to reduce the cost of metal structures by contacting their SRO and familiarizing themselves with OMK's offer.
Specialists of the Belgorod enterprise OMK, which, in cooperation with the Vyksa plant of the company, manufactures metal structures of any complexity, performed detailed calculations using the example of typical projects in order to clearly show how, while observing the current standards and maintaining all the operational characteristics of future buildings, their metal consumption can be optimally reduced. According to OMK's calculations, the use of metal structures made of high-strength steel grades up to C590 will reduce the metal consumption of the project by an average of 30-50%. It will also reduce the total weight of structures and reduce the load on the foundation, save on their transportation, assembly and installation. Compared to traditionally used structures made of low strength steel, this will reduce the cost of metal structures for the project by an average of one third.
Nowadays, rolled metal made of high-strength steel is used mainly in unique construction projects, however, the development of the regulatory framework and the expansion of the production capabilities of manufacturers makes it possible to use such rolled products in mass construction.
