As house building activity continues to lead UK construction, James Dunkerley Steel are here to provide structural steel for house building Yorkshire and the North West, as well as for construction projects up and down the country.

Whether you need structural steel to form the frame of a new building, fabrication of steel structures that can be assembled quickly on-site, or even just universal beams to take the place of a supporting wall in open-plan construction, we have stock ready to go in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Demand for structural steel for house building is particularly high as residential construction continues to lead UK activity – topping the table in the latest IHS Markit/CIPS UK Construction PMI again this month.

According to the survey, this has increase material costs and extended lead times from many suppliers, although at James Dunkerley we work hard to make sure we have steel beams, columns and sections in stock and ready for transport when you need them.

Duncan Brock, group director at CIPS, said: “With the fastest rise in new orders since May 2017, it appears the brakes are off for the construction sector.”

“The pressure was on [in June] to build up stocks of materials rising in price and becoming more scarce. This resulted in a heavy impact on suppliers unable to keep pace as deliveries became laboured and purchasing managers were at their busiest for two and a half years,” he added.

At James Dunkerley Steel we supply structural steel to Lancashire and the North West, as well as from our regional depot in Yorkshire, allowing us to serve both regions at times of high demand.

Stock is available for immediate collection or delivery – so whether you’re a regular customer or you are finding it difficult to purchase supplies from elsewhere, we may have the steel sections, beams and columns you need.

If you need cutting or fabrication services, we can do that too. Just get in touch with your nearest James Dunkerley depot to discuss what you need and we will do everything we can to supply your structural steel for house building or any other project with the minimum of lead time.
