Global Steel Buildings Canada recognizes that making buildings greener can have a significant impact on the environment overall. Steel is the best choice for an environmentally responsible building material.
According to the Canada Green Building Council, buildings generate up to 35% of all greenhouse gases, 35% of all landfill waste comes from construction and demolition and up to 70% of municipal water is consumed in and around buildings.
Whatever your application, Global Steel Building Canada’s pre-engineered steel buildings are designed, built and delivered to meet your specifications, meaning no waste will be produced on the job site.
Steel is the most recyclable material on the planet at 88%, more than all other materials combined. Steels metallurgical qualities allow it to be recycled continually with no deterioration in strength or performance.
Our panels are Energy Star rated to help regulate your building temperature. Because of the inherent strength of the steel it is built with, a pre-engineered steel building from Global Steel Buildings Canada can support thicker insulating layers. Both of these factors combined means your business will see a decrease in energy costs year round, a savings of approximately 30% that you can re-invest into your business.
Our buildings can be designed to accept solar panels giving you the opportunity to find further savings and reduce your dependency on the electric company. Continual increases in electrical costs are inevitable as ageing infrastructure will need replacement. The average return on investment for solar panels is 8.5%
Due to its properties, steel is resistant to mold, decay or insect infestation and cannot absorb bacteria growing moisture. Because of its environmental resistance, steel creates a healthy, green structural work space. In agricultural applications livestock will thrive in this healthy environment and crops can be stored without fear of spoilage.
If you are looking for a pre-engineered steel building for a commercial or storage application, the people working in and materials stored in the building will be healthier and safer than in a building using more traditional materials.
Buildings delivered by Global Steel Buildings Canada are tough and are resistant to severe weather.
Our buildings can earn you multiple points towards LEED® certification.
