Re: CORTEN steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


Pittsburgh has one of the largest CORTEN buildings that I have heard of, US Steel Building, the Steel seems to be as good as any and it is maintenance free and the esthetics are not bad. However; it has a tendency to bleed all over the sidewalk, planting beds etc.. so that now all areas and some interior areas are stained a nice rust color.

Just something to keep in mind.

P.S. US Steel had a series of steel design properties on CORTEN you can probably contact them for copies.
