Metalwork, in the building trades, refers to the cutting, welding and riveting of, usually, steel parts of a building. Most smaller structures, such as homes, have little call for metalwork, but larger buildings, and especially skyscrapers, are often completely wrapped around internal skeletons of steel beams. Many infrastructure projects like bridges are likewise heavily dependent on the trade of the metalworker.
