There have been many attempts to use different materials for the structural support systems of buildings over the years, but stainless steel is not one that I have come across before. The BROAD Group, based in China, recently highlights a multi-story, cantilevered building made entirely of stainless steel.

The company says that the building method is similar in cost to a more traditional concrete building and that the factory made panels allowed this particular building to be constructed at a rate of 3 floors per day. The secret sauce to them building with stainless steel is their BCore slab, which is a series of thin stainless steel tubes sandwiched between stainless steel plates to create the floor slabs.
