Strength and durability with a capacity to customize and expand in the future, along with low-maintenance, reduced insurance rates and low energy costs are all reasons to choose steel. Steel requires less materials than traditional wood and concrete structures, making your construction project more efficient and cost-effective. Because of its unlimited versatility, we can pair steel with glass, pre-cast concrete, masonry, and wood. It’s very likely that if you can dream it, you can build it with Steelway.
A steel building system (SBS) is a custom-engineered solution that optimizes and integrates framing, roofing and walls. Steel structures and components can help address many challenges that arise when building in urban centres. Engineered, prefabricated steel components can be rapidly installed reducing construction time and disruption on the site.
Testing our engineered building systems in field conditions worldwide is just one of the ways we ensure our commitment to high-quality, dependable building performance. Careful research and meticulous attention to detail throughout the years has allowed Steelway to refine our designs. The result, a product that delivers maximum efficiency, precise fit and peak performance, no matter the conditions.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides builders, architects and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct and manage their projects – saving time and reducing costs. With 3D based models, clashes can be detected and resolved much sooner in the design process, reducing costly site changes or field work.
Steelway has incorporated BIM in its service offering to better plan, design and construct building projects for its clients, regardless of building size or complexity. The construction world is rapidly evolving, requiring us to deliver durable and innovative infrastructures that meet increasingly constrained deadlines and budgets.
To do so, Steelway utilizes BIM technology, a solution that offers many benefits including:
- Improved pre-construction estimation
- More precise quantification of the different building components
- Rapid and informed decision-making
- More effective communication and improve collaboration among partners
- Virtual overview of the construction sequence
- Better coordination and reduced risk of errors in the plans and specifications
- Fewer change requests and surprises on-site in order to deliver on time and on budget
- Better construction tracking
We are committed to supplying our customers products that support green building projects through our processes, product offerings and company practices. We are an active participant in the ever-growing number of quality initiatives that will lead toward your next project’s efficient sustainable design.
The Green in Steel
In recent years there has been a growing trend toward “building green” with sustainable construction. For a building to meet the parameters of sustainable design, its plan and construction must include built-in design features and materials that utilize renewable energy, enhance energy efficiency, safeguard water and water efficiency and conserve materials and resources.
Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating system that is recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building in over 160 countries.
Many organizations are now requiring LEED certification for their buildings. Steelway products can be credited with a significant number of points in the following categories:
- Site Design
- Site Access
- Water Efficiency
- Energy & Atmosphere
- Materials & Resources
Contributing to a Sustainable Design
Steel is the most recycled material in North America, with an average recycling rate of 70 percent. In fact, two out of every three kilograms of new steel are produced from “old” steel. Giving rise to new buildings, appliances, bridges and other infrastructure products with extremely long service lives.
Metal roofs and wall panels reduce waste due to their unmatched durability and resistance to fire, wind and insects. Metal roofs last between 40-60 years and require less maintenance than other types of roofs
COOL ROOF COLOURS
Steelway offers cool paint colours for our metal roof panels. When used properly, a cool roof can reduce energy consumption, providing significant cost and energy savings.
Steelway Building Systems metal roofs provide an ideal substrate for solar arrays and offer unique environmental and performance advantages such as durability, low maintenance, recycled material and reflective coatings.
When applied over an existing roof, a retrofit system delivers an aesthetically pleasing effect while improving energy efficiency and providing water runoff solutions.
