Pre-engineered steel buildings are a great alternative to wood and brick constructions. Pre-engineered structures are typically less expensive, more durable and more versatile than other buildings. The great thing about pre-engineering is that all the components are cut to exact lengths and widths in the warehouse and delivered ready to be erected. Pre-engineered metal buildings have long ruled agricultural and aviation construction markets. Today steel buildings dominate commercial and industrial construction.  Steel is used to frame 65% of low rise commercial building projects and 95% of new industrial construction.  Some of the most common pre-engineered steel buildings are presented in the guide below.

Farm Buildings

For centuries farmers have constructed wooden barns. The first European settlers to create homes in North America all had barns. The log home would often have a central chimney and one side of the structure was for humans, the other for livestock. The second structure to be built was a storage shed for wheat, hay and roots to provide food for the humans and the animals during the winter months. Then the small livestock barn would be built. The number of out buildings would increase as the family became prosperous. Eventually the family would move into a frame or stone house and the original log cabin would be designated for livestock use. These wooden structures lasted a fairly long time. Today, farmers are opting for a steel farm building instead. Pre-engineered steel farm buildings are much longer lasting than the original wood barn. They are easily insulated to store livestock, and can store both equipment and products inside away from the outdoors any any extreme weather. Like any other pre-engineered steel building, farm buildings can be designed and customized to meet your specific farming needs.

Storage and Warehousing

Storage and warehousing are a common use of pre-engineered steel structures. Like garages and shops storage buildings can be designed to custom sizes. Easily add options like doors, windows and insulation. Storage buildings can be designed for clear span capabilities so you can use large warehousing equipment and easily store and move large material in your building.

Sports Arena

Pre-engineered steel buildings make great sports arenas. Using custom designs, these steel buildings are an excellent choice for any sport or activity. A multi-purpose recreational facility can be used for a variety of sports. From basketball court, tennis court, ice rink, or horse riding arena – these spaces can be designed for any sport or activity. Steel buildings are the best choice for arena’s. Because of an arena’s overall width, steel buildings have strong truss designs and the buildings limited need for center support beams.
