Steel also shows its versatility in construction. This includes, in particular, constructive steel and composite bridge construction, steel and composite constructions in industrial, office and administrative buildings, the building shell and building design in architecture. The high recyclability of steel is reflected positively for the construction sector due to its possibilities in a holistic balancing.

Due to the general regulations in the construction industry, especially in heavy steel construction, there are often topical overlaps with other steel application fields, such as plant construction, environmental technology and joining technology.
