Newly launched Steel Building Solutions (SBS) by APL Apollo

As part of their endeavour to offer the latest innovations, APL Apollo has recently launched the next-generation steel building solutions that should revolutionize the construction industry. Building materials that are of excellent quality, offer value for money, improve project execution time and remain environmentally friendly would greatly benefit the construction industry. Tubular structural steel construction solutions help the industry to build faster and better.

Tubes are currently used only in 10-15% of the structure to make the truss, bracing, joist, column and facade. The reasons for low utilisation are the lack of availability of larger sizes, limited size range, wastage, large MoQ and the lead time. APL Apollo, with its new range, is set to disrupt the status quo. With sizes ranging from 12x12mm to 500x500mm, and 1000x1000mm to be launched soon, APL Apollo is the largest producer and supplier of structural steel tubes in India with about 55% of the market share.

Over 6000 tons of ERW tubes per day are manufactured at plants of APL Apollo. The tubes are cut into the desired length (of 4-12m) in the CTL Line to minimise wastage and the cut-to-length tubes are transferred to the fabricator’s workshop. The tubes are sandblasted and then connected using connectors. The connected structures are painted and the structure parts are transferred to the construction site. The civil foundation is laid and the anchor bolts are arranged at the site to install tube columns. The entire construction is completed with zero on-site fabrication resulting in quick and efficient project completion with minimum wastage.

Tubular construction solutions are perfect for hospitals,housing, schools,courts,high-rise buildings,hotels,malls,offices,warehouses,cold storage,food parks,factory buildings,process structures,oxygen plants,aviation hangers, data centres and more.

If you compare the steel structure to the standard RCC structure from a cost-benefit analysis point of view, you will find that the steel structure is extremely cost-effective and saves a significant amount of time as well. It takes 8 days per slab for steel structure while it is around 24 days per slab for RCC structure.

If you look at the revenue analysis, tubular steel structures offer 2% additional carpet area with advanced revenue/cash flows and reduced construction time. The superstructure is ready 65% faster offering financial cost savings and early commencement of the project. 

Using an RCC structure will push up the project cost by 5% i.e. around Rs 250-300 per sq.ft. Overall using the steel structure will push project IRR up by 1.5% while offering 2% additional area. 

Moreover, tubular steel solutions are environmentally friendly causing no air pollution and aiding in water conservation. Steel is recyclable, has superior strength, is earthquake resistant and offers extra clear height up to 6%. 

The construction of buildings contributes to 30% of indirect and indirect CO2 emissions.  Structural steel is preferred for buildings because steel can be recycled multiple times.Studies have shown that the replacement of RCC with steel structures can reduce emission by 60%.

The tubular steel solutions offered by APL Apollo are expected to usher in a revolution in the construction industry with far-reaching benefits to all stakeholders and a positive impact on the environment. For information on the products please visit .
