About Erecting structural steel

Erectors are the most visible component of the structural steel supply chain, performing the actual construction work at the project site. Most erection is performed under the same contract as the steel fabrication, with the fabricator either providing in-house erection services or sub-contracting the erection work to a qualified firm. Field erection involves assembling the structural components in proper sequence while maintaining the structural stability of the partially completed structure. Stringent safety standards have significantly reduced the number of injuries occurring during steel erection. The erection team is also responsible for bringing the final structure into "plumb" within the required tolerances.
