9 Building materials

Most construction projects involve a wide use of different materials. The list is very extensive, but the main ones for the structural framework are clearly concrete, steel, brick and wood. When designing a building or structure, the planning team must decide which materials are most suitable for the design and purpose. The main considerations to be taken into account when choosing a material are weight, strength, sustainability, fire resistance and, not to be forgotten, cost.
