A steel structure is a metal structure that is made of structural steel* components that connect with each other to carry loads and provide full rigidity. Because of the high strength grade of steel, this structure is reliable and requires less raw materials than other types of structure like concrete structure and timber structure. This immense strength is of great advantage to buildings. The other important feature of steel framing is its flexibility. It can bend without cracking, which is another great advantage, as a steel building can flex when it is pushed to one side by say, wind, or an earthquake. The third characteristic of steel is its plasticity or ductility. This means that when subjected to great force, it will not suddenly crack like glass, but slowly bend out of shape. This property allows steel buildings to bend out of shape, or deform, thus giving warning to inhabitants to escape.

Shown below are the different types of structure:
1. Cost savings
The steel structure is the cost leader for most projects in materials and design. It is inexpensive to manufacture requires less maintenance than other traditional building methods.
Steel has a natural beauty that most architects can’t wait to take advantage of. Steel allows for long column-free spans and you can have a lot of natural light if you want it in any shape of structures.
3. Control and Management
Steel structures are fabricated at the factory and rapidly erected at the construction site by skilled personnel that makes a safe construction process. Industry surveys consistently demonstrate that steel structures are the optimal solution in management.
It can withstand extreme forces or harsh weather conditions, such as strong winds, earthquakes, hurricanes, and heavy snow. They are also unreceptive to rust and, unlike wood frames, they are not affected by termites, bugs, mildew, mold, and fungi.
