China is a big country in steel production and a big country in the steel structure industry, with a steel…
Prefabricated steel structure building is a new type of building, which all the building components manufactured in the factory. And
This building customizes according to the structural and architectural requirements of customers.
Recently, the most concerned topic in China and the world in 2020 is China’s new type of coronary pneumonia. To be exact, the latest outbreak of coronary pneumonia that began in Wuhan city, Hubei Province, China.
At the end of December 2019, it poses a serious challenge to China. As of today, February 22, 2020, there have been more than 70,000 confirmed cases across the country, with more than 2,000 deaths. It was also the result of the Chinese government making a correct decision on time, closing Wuhan on January 23, 2020, and jointly fighting the epidemic across the whole country. Otherwise, the consequences are unimaginable.
Prefabricated steel structure building for Wuhan’s Huoshenshan Hospital
The construction of Wuhan’s Huoshenshan Hospital further demonstrates China’s national unity and China’s architectural miracle. The task assigned on January 23 and completed and delivered on February 2. The construction of Huoshenshan Hospital will only take 10 days from the start of construction to deliver. The total construction area is 33,900 square meters, which can accommodate 1,000 beds. Over 50 million netizens are online “supervisors.” This Chinese Spring Festival, Wuhan’s Huoshenshan Hospital, has become a global “net star”.
Ten days to build a hospital with a capacity of 1,000 beds, why is this impossible task achieved in China? In addition to the hard work day and night of thousands of Chinese construction workers, thanks to the speed of prefabricated steel structure buildings!
In China, steel structures have seen everywhere, and they increasingly used in schools, hospitals, stations, airports, stadiums, supermarkets, and other public buildings. On February 6, 2016. The State Council of China issued a government document mentioning the need to develop new construction methods. Vigorously promote prefab buildings, and strive to take about ten years to make prefabricated buildings account for 30% of the new building.
So what exactly is a Prefabricated steel structure building?
Prefabricated Steel structure building refers to the building assembled on-site with prefabricated components produced by the factory and is an essential part of industrialized buildings. With the continuous development of modern industrial technology, building houses manufactured in batches in the same way as machine production as long as the prefabricated house components transported to the construction site for assembly. Ten-story high-rise buildings only need to be assembled like building blocks.
What are the advantages of the Prefabricated steel structure building? Why is it so popular?
1.Short construction period.
The components can industrially produce in the factory, and the construction site can directly installed, which is convenient and fast. So it can significantly shorten the construction period and greatly increase the construction speed. In China, the building workers could build a 15-story building in less than a week.
2.Reduced environmental pollution at the construction site.
The high degree of mechanization of building components can significantly reduce the staffing of the construction site. Due to the reduction in the amount of work on the construction site, material waste can reduce to a certain extent, and the efficiency of material use can significantly improve. The original in-situ pouring work at the site has decreased dramatically, and the health has not disturbed the people, and the farewell construction site has been bid farewell.
3.Green and environmental protection
The steel materials of steel structure buildings can be recycled. Steel structure buildings have better variability. They can be reinforced, connected, expanded, and internally separated, and the change is easy and flexible. It believes that steel structure buildings are environmentally friendly buildings. It reduces the construction site gravel, cement storage site, and also reduces formwork storage and transportation. It reduces noise and dust pollution on site. The in-situ concrete floor slab of the profiled steel plate makes it cleaner than other floor slabs, which improves the cleanliness standard of the hospital.
4.High-security level and low maintenance costs.
Prefabricated building factory production can maximize the common quality problems such as wall cracking and leakage, and improve the overall safety level, fire resistance, and durability of the house. The connections between the components are mainly cast-in-place nodes, and the precast PC component’s steel bars are extended into the cast-in-place parts to anchor the connection, ensuring the integrity of the house. Compared with the prefabricated slab structure, the quality is significantly improved.
5.Good seismic performance.
At present, the seismic performance of prefabricated building structures in China is equivalent to the seismic performance of cast-in-situ structures, and even some properties exceed the seismic performance of cast-in-situ structures. It is no problem to resist the magnitude of eight earthquakes.
In recent years, China’s light steel prefabricated steel structure villas, integrated housing, and other steel structure prefabricated buildings have been exported all over the world. China’s steel structure is getting mature. If you have any questions or requirements about the steel structure, please contact us.
