Steel structures and concrete structures are widely used in the field of construction, and both have their own advantages and disadvantages. The main advantages of steel structures are light, strong, durable, and easy to assemble, especially suitable for long-span and high-rise buildings; the main advantages of concrete structures are that reinforced concrete structures have better seismic performance, safety and reliability, and are especially suitable for underground structures. From the perspective of cost, the cost of steel structure material is slightly higher than that of concrete structure, but it can save time and labor costs, so there is no absolute difference between the two in terms of cost.
2. Cost comparison
Taking a high-rise building project as an example, calculate the respective cost of steel structure and concrete structure. The project has a total construction area of 2,000 square meters and a height of 60 meters.
Ⅰ. Cost of steel structure
The project adopts steel structure, and the cost of steel structure is calculated at US$50 per square meter, totaling US$100,000. However, it should be noted that the processing and assembly costs of steel structures are relatively high, and some domestic manufacturers have higher prices. Therefore, the cost of the steel structure needs to be calculated according to the actual situation.
Ⅱ. Concrete structure cost
The project uses a concrete structure, and the cost of the concrete structure is calculated at US$50 per square meter, totaling US$100,000. It should be noted that the concrete structure needs to take into account the fluctuation of the price of concrete materials and the change of construction cost, so the cost also needs to be calculated according to the actual situation.
According to the above calculation results, the cost of steel structure is slightly higher than that of concrete structure. However, the steel structure has high seismic performance, and the structure is light and the construction period is short, which can greatly reduce the construction time of the project, thereby saving labor costs and overhead costs. Therefore, in the specific application, it is necessary to fully consider the specific situation and building requirements, make a comprehensive comparison, and then make a decision. At the same time, it is recommended that the majority of construction engineers should pay full attention to the requirements of building energy conservation, environmental protection, and sustainable development while mastering professional knowledge, and jointly promote the development of construction projects.
