Benefits of Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings

Metal buildings are also referred to as Steel Buildings or Pre-engineered metal building. These structures offer many advantages to other construction types:

Durability - The durability of metal in construction has widely recognized advantages:

  • Last much longer than structures made of wood. Steel buildings offer low maintenance cost compared to wood buildings which deteriorate more rapidly, leaving the owner with costly continued maintenance.
  • Designed to withstand everything from heavy rain, snow, high winds and earthquakes.
  • Fire Resistant – Steel is more resistant to fire than wood.
     

Versatility – Pre-engineered metal buildings may utilize clear space (no interior columns). As such, the floor plan can be much more flexible than traditional buildings.  A wide open interior space and no maximum size can accommodate a wide variety of occupants.  The space can be retail, office, or even manufacturing.

Speedy Assembly – Unlike traditional construction that can take months and months to complete, erecting pre-engineered metal or steel buildings is much quicker.

Cost Efficient – Pre-engineered metal buildings are cost efficient.  As the buildings are design to exacting requirements, typically much less steel used; thus reducing costs.  Additionally, unlike traditional construction, there are seldom delays in metal or steel building construction.

Energy Efficient – Pre-engineered metal buildings allow for insulation to meet the increasing demands of energy code requirements.

Environmentally Friendly – Pre-engineered metal buildings are manufactured from steel which is recycled more when compared to other materials.  Steel also can be recycled an infinite number of times without losing strength.  Debris from the pre-engineered metal buildings from demolition goes to recycling plants rather than landfills.
