Appearances matter when designing and planning projects that require structurally exposed steel. Architecturally exposed structural steel (AESS) is steel that is specifically designed to maintain structural adequacy while being aesthetically pleasing to view.
Edgen Murray provides architecturally exposed structural steel for domestic and international projects. We negotiate Value Engineering (VE) alternatives for materials to be utilized under the AESS Category (1, 2, 3, 4, and custom) requirements, thus reducing project expenditures by providing precision, cut-to-length pieces to maximize effectiveness. Although architecturally exposed structural steel costs more to fabricate than standard structural steel, we work with premium fabricators and coaters to ensure that our customers receive the best quality product available.
