Architects and engineers have the opportunity and freedom to create architecturally exposed steel structures that yield new aesthetics, exceptional performance, and economical buildings. Cast steel connections provide an exciting outlet for creativity in design and can be a key to achieving successful end results by helping to produce designs that are structurally adequate, architecturally appropriate, and readily constructed. By working with professionals in this field preferably in the design process but certainly in the construction process, choices can be made that result in economical yet elegant casting designs that enhance the full building.
