How to Choose the Right Structural Steel Company

With so many structural steel companies to choose from, it can be difficult to determine the structural steel fabrication partner that will best fit your needs. There are three areas that you will want to review before selecting a structural steel company.

Evaluate if their service offerings & capabilities meet your requirements
It’s vital to know which structural steel companies have the services and technology to fulfill your project scope. Some of the structural steel offerings many structural steel companies provide include structural steel, access steel, heavy structural weldments, and miscellaneous steel.

Companies such as Southeastern Construction, offer clients the latest in BIM, CNC fabrication, and project management technologies. The structural steel fabrication software helps to keep client projects on time and on budget as they provide the ability to forecast potential fabrication issues before they arise.

View their quality standards & certifications

Certifications for structural steel fabrication help to reinforce that a company has the knowledge and quality standards for the job. Some quality certifications that structural steel companies may have include Structural Facilities AISC Certified and an AWS Certified Welding Fabricator. AISC’s certification programs set the quality standard for the structural steel industry and are the most recognized national quality certification program. [1]

Consider their structural steel fabrication experience & past projects

Many structural steel companies will have a project gallery on their website that you can view to see the scope of their past projects and the results. Typically, these galleries provide information such as the quantities of structural for the project, the type of structural steel utilized, and if there were any coating requirements. It is beneficial if you can use a structural steel fabricator, such as Southeastern Construction, that offers automated shot blast cleaning & industrial coating in house to save you money on using an outside vendor for this service.
