Monash University research confirms carbon emission savings using Coresteel Buildings DonoBeam®

Steel buildings Christchurch

Corcon is excited to announce that Monash University has issued independent verification proving that Coresteel Building's exclusive Tapered Box Beam portal system saves up to 40% of carbon emissions.



The research team compared the life cycle of our Coresteel Buildings DonoBeam® with traditional steel systems, analysing raw material processing, steel structure fabrication, transportation emissions and on-site construction.

Overall, the study found that our innovative Donobeam Tapered Box Beam design uses fewer raw materials and is typically lighter, reducing transportation costs. Prefabricating the steel structures also reduces construction time on-site.

The university used several projects as case studies, including an ARB Showroom and Brother Warehouse in Tauranga.

With many commercial builders in New Zealand making unsubstantiated sustainability claims, it is exciting to have solid proof that Coresteel Buildings steel structures are a better choice for business owners and developers wanting to reduce their carbon footprint.
