Why the Pre-Engineered Steel Building Industry?
Metal buildings account for more than 60% of all low-rise, non-residential structures of up to 300,000 square feet — more than 500 million square feet a year!
Design/Appearance – Building systems can incorporate glass, brick, stone or pre-cast concrete.
End Use – Metal buildings are used for: schools, retail outlets, office buildings, public buildings, industrial facilities, agricultural facilities, churches, auto dealerships and more.
Growth – Metal buildings are designed to be expanded easily; one of the many benefits of a completely integrated set of mutually dependent components and assemblies.
Computer-Aided Design – With standard components, computers simplify the design and code process.
Cost – Standardization saves time in construction.
Construction Time – Less time spent on front-end design allows for construction to begin sooner while computers minimize questions and margins for error. Additionally, steel metal building contractions arrive at the construction site as a series of pre-sized components that bolt together. Since cutting and fitting of components are not required, less time is spent on construction.
Project Completions and Occupancy – Less time in design and construction means faster occupancy and a quicker return on investment for the owner.
Energy Savings – Selection of insulated roof and wall systems, properly installed, can significantly reduce HVAC costs.
Carefree Upkeep – Quality materials with an emphasis on long- life finishes seriously diminish, and can even eliminate structural deterioration, cracking, rot and insect damage more common in other types of buildings.
