Why Choose a Prefab Kennel Building?

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

Metal kennel buildings is extremely durable and will be engineered to meet your specific local codes for wind, snow, and seismic loads.

Structure and style are widely customizable, from classic rural to totally modern. You specify the door and window openings. The strength of steel means no interior columns, and you can arrange the interior space any way you want.

Steel buildings aren’t susceptible to pest damage or to rot, cracking, or warping that can affect timber-framed structures.

A local contractor can handle the construction phase (many customers DIY build) as the structure is literally a bolt-together kit. Precision engineering gives you a kennel that will fit together precisely and easily.

And the structure can easily be expanded as your business grows. Simply remove the end wall, pour a new slab, and add 20 or 25-foot bays.

  • Near-zero maintenance
  • Insect, rodent, mildew and rot proof
  • Weathertight construction
  • Fire resistance of steel = lower insurance cost
  • Fast construction to occupancy
  • Wall-to-wall, clear span space
  • Custom manufactured to your specs
  • High energy-efficiency
  • Modular design for easy expansion
  • Numerous available finishing options
