Have you ever been curious how the progress of metal construction throughout history has taken the first metal buildings to metal structure recent developments and the custom designed metal buildings so widely used today? Image Building Systems has been in the business of metal construction for many years, and our experienced team has some insight to share about history and metal construction.
What are some pros of custom designed metal buildings? If you have any familiarity with pre-engineered steel for buildings, the question may have crossed your mind of whether or not this type of construction is truly advantageous, and if so, for what. You may or may not have had some experience with pre-engineered construction already, but we can offer a closer look that will allow you to observe all that a steel structure can do for your business, your home, or your community.
There are a lot of buildings out there, and a lot of examples of unique architectural design. How are you going to make your structure stand out from the rest and capture the attention of your customers or your community? Image Building Systems suggests using pre-engineered steel architecture. We are offering you design options that give you the freedom to customize and create your structure, with the potential to take on greater possibilities for visual appearance than other forms of architecture offer.
Progress of Metal Construction
As the scope and size of metal buildings continue to expand it is important to look at how far the industry has come. In 1941 when Quonset Huts were beginning to be manufactured out of North Kingstown, Rhode Island’s Quonset Point Navy Base (famed as the home of the SeaBees, the Navy’s construction battalion) nobody would have imagined the stadiums and arenas being built today as metal buildings.
The original Quonset Hut footprint was 16’ x 36’ and was shaped like a half pipe. Even decades after the war in the 1950s and 60s there were substantial limits on metal building height and span. These early metal buildings started to gain attention for being inexpensive, being easy to erect, quick to erect and lasting longer than their conventional wood construction counterparts. Being made up of just a few different individual pieces the buildings were easily engineered and easily approved by zoning boards across the country. All of these factors led to considerable metal building construction across the country. They were however limited to metal buildings that were unmistakably metal buildings.
Using steel to build has created an advantage for environmentally-friendly and sustainable construction as well. Steel is reusable and recyclable material; more than 80 million tons of steel are estimated to be recycled per year. Because steel can be completely recycled, our buildings are sustainable and a great form of waste-free construction. You can save money on construction and operating your facility at the same time as you can lighten your environmental conscience with the knowledge that you have one of the most eco-friendly construction options out there.
You may have noticed, but steel construction has grown in popularity and widespread use throughout the years. It commonly makes its appearance in industrial settings, commercial buildings, storage and recreational spaces, and even for residential use. You may be curious what makes pre-manufactured steel a great choice for construction in all of these contexts. Perhaps you haven’t yet considered the reasons why steel construction like this may be a great option for your own purposes as well. We can show you a few reasons you may want steel for your project, and how you can save money finding the material you need to build.
Whether you are constructing your company’s new building, designing your first home, or erecting a community recreational facility, choosing steel for construction is the way to go. There are a number of advantages that make steel great for construction, and the uses for steel buildings are endless. We have yet to find a purpose it construction that pre-engineered doesn’t suit, and so far, it has allowed people to significantly reduce their costs and time spent on construction projects anywhere it is used. What makes steel so great for building construction?
Metal Structure Recent Developments
Only recently, with improvements in Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Engineering, have metal buildings undergone a renaissance. Across the country hockey arenas, churches, large warehouses, and community centers are custom designed and erected as metal buildings. These structures while pre-engineered are now designed specifically for their use by metal building contractors and erectors. This purpose-built design used by companies like Image Building Systems has allowed businesses to continue to expand their ideas of what is possible within the metal buildings industry.
While the metal building industry continues to expand, at Image Building Systems we think the moniker of Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings has become dated. After 4 decades of CAD and CAE improvements in our industry, it’s now time our buildings were known not only for efficiency but for their design flexibility. Please consider this the beginning of the Custom Designed Metal Buildings Industry. While we can now be as versatile as structural steel, Custom Designed Metal Buildings are still clearly the best option for those looking to save time and money.
What is so great about CAD developments for construction and specifically pre-engineered steel is that anyone can see an idea of exactly what you would like the finished building to look like, creating models, prototypes, and detailed images that give an idea what the structure will look like once it has been built. You can adjust, redesign, and change your plans for the project as much as needed before you begin to build, and the finished product will be exactly what you have in mind to build, using designs that you can visualize and create even if you aren’t an architectural expert.
We want to give you the guarantee that our service and product quality will never be second-rate. Quality matters to construction, and it matters to us.
