Detailed below are some of the most important features and benefits associated with modern metal buildings:
If you are reading this, you have at least given some consideration to erecting a steel building on your property. Perhaps you have a small business and you need storage for materials. Or you are looking for a private hangar for your airplane; or paddocks for your horses; or a hobby area—the possibilities are endless. And fortunately for you, the steel building options are just as unlimited.
With the advent a few decades ago of the Pre-engineered Steel Building, or PEB, the costs of constructing large, open structures have come down while at the same time increasing the life, durability, safety, and efficiency of the structures. Generations ago, it became clear that steel was a much more practical building material for commercial use than wood. As technologies improved and prices decreased, steel began to be used more and more in even small to medium commercial applications. Today, steel holds a 95% market share for commercial/industrial use in Canada, the United States, and many other developed countries and is quickly growing in popularity in even developing countries. In recent decades, the PEB has made it possible to expand the field of steel usage as a building material into almost all structure types, both large and small. Whereas an endless variety of styles are possible, steel buildings generally fall into two design categories: Quonset and gable.
One of the most compelling advantages of the Pre-engineered Steel Building for personal and residential use is that nowadays it can be finished to be fully integrated with the existing architecture. For instance, a PEB garage or shop can be designed to look exactly like the home to which it is attached, right down to the architectural shingles and window boxes! Conversely, with the wide latitude possible in Pre-engineered Steel Building design, you can build a structure on your property that is completely unique. Stand out or make a statement, if that is your focus. For example, your art studio can be built to look like it came right out of Sausalito or Greenwich Village.
PEBs in both the Quonset and gable styles are currently being used effectively in a wide variety of applications in virtually every structure type that had once been the exclusive domain of the wood-framed or brick-and-mortar building. Quonset huts, for instance, make an excellent design for an airplane hangar because of its inherent strength and large dome capabilities. Gable-style warehouses make it possible to effectively use every inch of floor space and utilize multi-story racking. A technology known as clear-span can be used to create completely open horse-riding arenas and sports centers with unobstructed views from any seat. Retail stores and factories are able to keep their per-square-foot costs down using a PEB for their construction. Homes and even churches have been built using PEB technology to great success. If you can imagine it, a PEB can likely be designed to make it possible.
If you are still reading, please take a moment to consider a few of the reasons that steel buildings are quickly becoming the answer to many space challenges in today’s world and why, per square foot, Pre-engineered Steel Buildings far outscore other available options in durability, flexibility, economics, and just plain old-fashioned good taste.
