Schuff Steel is one of the largest and most experienced structural steel fabricator and erector in North America, consistently ranked by Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine as the #1 Steel Erector in the U.S. Schuff Steel approaches each project with a “builder” mindset, planning the project with the construction of the building in mind, working backwards through erection, fabrication, project management and design. Schuff Steel operates fabrication plants across the U.S. with over 1.465 million sq-ft under roof and over 325,000 tons of annual fabrication capacity, and manages a vast network of quality subfabricators to support the needs of very large projects.

Long Standing Clients
People are the key to Schuff Steel’s success. Originally a family owned and operated company, Schuff Steel has evolved into a brand whose growth is driven by a select team of industry leaders. Together with this group are teams of planners and builders that bring life to each of Schuff Steel’s projects. These projects give us the opportunity to invite community involvement by employing a diverse group of vendors and subcontractors, including those that qualify as Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). From the site, to the shop, to the boardroom, Schuff Steel actively seeks out and hires the most qualified people and partners, in both expertise and character, for the specific needs of our clients.
The Schuff way
Lean construction isn’t just our mindset, it’s part of our DNA. Every thought and decision within Schuff is instinctively done from a lean perspective. Dating back to Schuff’s early years, our commitment to waste elimination through a project life cycle, led us to the early adoption of BIM (Building Information Modeling) as well as development of our own proprietary steel management software, SIMS (Schuff Integrated Management System). In an effort to do everything possible to exceed our clients’ expectations, we’ve integrated lean construction into the Schuff Steel project delivery method.
Our process includes:
- Establishing milestones when items need to be finalized
- Committing and providing regular updates to the Project Team
- Allowing visibility of impacts immediately
- Incorporating plus/minus values after collaboration sessions to elevate the effectiveness of future sessions
Pulling from over 40 years of experience, hundreds of projects and our highly skilled team, we approach each day with a lean thinking mindset of how we can continually evolve our processes to further increase value for our clients. Our process is transparent and brings potential challenges to the surface, allowing time to find a solution. This stabilization increases the efficiency of the project while having a positive impact on quality and cost.
