Why Choose a Metal Commercial Building?

American-made, I-Beam steel framing, custom-engineered in factories across North America.

Pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB) provide many benefits for large and small businesses alike. They are ideal for organizations that need to occupy space quickly and efficiently.

PEMBs are also cost-efficient due to shorter build times compared with other construction methods. Equating to faster occupancy and lower construction loan interest charges. Efficiencies are also realized via the near-zero maintenance required on these structures.

Buildings can be engineered to span long distances of 100 feet or more, cost-effectively, with wide open clear span spaces.

Single source assurance is another benefit of steel buildings. The manufacturer is responsible for designing and engineering the building to your specifications, eliminating the need for an architect (if you choose to go this route).

Steel buildings can also be configured to be highly energy efficient and can also be fitted with solar panels for additional energy savings. Design flexibility allows for various design choices to match your corporate identity or existing structures.
