One might believe a complex as tall and modern as the EVO apartment building would take years to finish. While the duration of construction varies from project to project, concrete frames exhibit numerous benefits over steel frames, making concrete the ideal choice for clients interested in the perfect blend of durability, cost, and timeliness. Concrete costs less for several reasons, the foremost of which is materials. The cost of reinforced bars and concrete elements is significantly less than the tons of steel required for steel-frame construction.
Projects that use steel are also subject to weather. Steel must be protected when inclement conditions occur; modern concrete solutions, however, set in lower temperatures, enabling companies to carry out construction year-round. The versatility of concrete extends to engineers who can take advantage of the shorter floor-to-floor height and smaller footprint for confined spaces.
