Kirby’s structural steel products are custom-designed and workshop fabricated, hot rolled and welded steel structures for applications such as heavy industries, power plants, oil & gas, petrochemical industry, high-rise/commercial buildings, airports and other specialized structures. We are one of the most innovative steel structure fabricators and are always looking to enhance our range of products and services, including project execution.
Structural steel has traditionally been fabricated on-site, mainly due to lack of infrastructure for transporting heavy sections from an off-site workshop to a project site. Moreover, there is often insufficient space at a site to set up a fabrication workshop and skilled labor is available at a premium. These issues can always be mitigated by workshop-made steel structures which are proving to be more efficient in terms of quality and timelines. This helps to reduce the time and cost of execution, and is expected to fuel the demand for steel structures in future. The speed of execution is a critical factor for any large industrial or infrastructure project and is a driver for a shift towards the factory- made fabrication. The projects that took longer periods to complete a few years ago are now being executed in a shorter amount of time, resulting in a considerable amount of cost savings. Faster construction will propel the industry towards factory-made steel structures, owners and consultants will realize the advantages in terms of uniformity of finish and better quality, as asteel producers align their rolling sections as per the design needs.
