The paper descriptionbes the design and construction of an 18storey steel-framed building in Johannesburg. The factors influencing the design choice are discussed. Comparative costs and construction times between a steel and concrete building are given. The building was completed to a construction cycle of one week per floor for each sub-trade, and a saving of five months compared with a concrete building was achieved. Emphasis is placed on the management necessary to obtain maximum benefit from the speed of erection of the steel frame.
