Pre-engineered steel buildings may at first glance seem like an expensive route to take, but the savings in construction, maintenance or replacement costs can be vast. A steel framed building has greater structural strength than a traditional ‘stick-built’ structure, and various models have been in demand for years as a cost effective, weather resistant solution to various building needs.
Many pre-engineered metal buildings can be purchased from a Building Supplier such as Image Building Systems, Next a crew will quickly erect and put the finishing touches on a complete structure in mere weeks instead of taking months to construct a comparable building made from traditional materials.
The uses to which a pre-engineered steel building can be put are many, and varied:
- Distribution Centers
- Horse Barns
- Storage units
- Aircraft hangars
- Fire Stations
- Sports arenas
- Manufacturing plants
- Recreation centers
The main advantage pre-engineered buildings have over traditional structures is that they are virtually maintenance free. Steel is rust and corrosion resistant, can be easily painted if desired, and stands up well to wind, snow and even fire. If a steel framed building is erected on the proper footing it can remain standing and in good repair for 20-30 years or even longer without maintenance or painting.
Steel frame buildings have another benefit in that they can be ordered in a variety of sizes and dimensions, making it easy to customize to both the space available and the use for which it is intended. Buildings can be designed to accommodate an existing foundation, if desired, or even erected with a minimal footing in some cases.
