Advantages of Building with Steel

If you’re looking for an affordable building solution with lifetime performance, choose to build with steel.

From residential garages to large complex structures, our high-gauge steel building components offer you a durable, versatile building alternative to wood or aluminum.

Steel Building Advantages:

  • Steel is sustainable. A 100% recyclable, green choice with no steel or material waste occurring before, during, or after manufacturing and construction.
  • Hurricane-rated. Our weathertight steel buildings will stand up to anything mother nature throws our way.
  • No harmful chemicals – not treated with arsenic, acid, or pesticides.
  • Steel does not shrink, swell, split or warp, and is non-combustible.
  • Steel can span greater distances than wood to provide larger open spaces without a need for intermediate columns.
  • No need to paint or replace rotting parts. Our steel buildings are virtually maintenance-free, which helps reduce your operating costs.
  • Dirt and pollutants wash off in the rain.
  • Eliminate moisture and bacteria for a fresh interior with multiple ventilation options.
  • Light-transmitting panels reduce the need for artificial lighting and help decrease utility bills.
  • Growing and/or expanding? Building additions and future expansion are easy.
  • Protect your investment – steel buildings can be moved, disassembled, or sold if no longer needed.

In addition to all of the above, you can get your new steel building up faster than with traditional construction methods, and customize it to your liking with over 20 color choices.

This Shed was Ready to Go in Weeks!

Now on our fourth steel building project for the nuclear plant in Chalk River (Government of Canada), we’re used to tight project deadlines, and this was our fastest delivery time yet!

The second custom 11 1/2 x 18 ft. guard shed we’ve made for the staff at the nuclear plant…we fabricated the steel frame, added insulation, assembled the building, and outfitted it with full electrical, heat, and air conditioning.

All manufactured, shipped, and ready to go within two weeks!

Our client was beyond thrilled to receive their new steel building…another project delivered quickly, and on time as promised. 🙂

Benefits of Building with Steel vs. Wood

Steel is one of the most resilient building materials on earth, capable of just about anything!

Dependable and built to last, steel frame buildings offer long-life performance, stand up to extreme weather, and are a smart investment for any personal or commercial building project.

Steel Building Benefits

Long-Lasting Structural Performance

  • Won’t rot, mould, warp, split, crack, or creep.
  • Not vulnerable to termites/insect damage.
  • Will not expand or contract with moisture content.
  • Steel is produced in strict accordance with national standards (no regional variations).

Durable, Resilient Material

  • Steel is not combustible. In some areas, local fire and building codes require the use of steel vs. wood.
  • Sturdier than wood, steel is also better able to withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes or tornados.
  • Steel is engineered to provide a reliable, consistent load path.
  • Manufactured under quality control & quality assurance procedures to ensure all project requirements are met.

Environmentally-Friendly, Sustainable

  • Results in less scrap and job site waste than lumber.
  • Steel is continually recycled (these steels will still be in use hundreds of years from now, lessening the environmental impact on future generations).
  • Steel, when recycled, loses none of its strength and can be recycled into products such as cars, bridges, and cans.
  • Can be used to comply with sustainable design standards requirements: International Green Construction Code (IgCC), ASHRAE Standard 189.1 (Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings), and the National Green Building Standard (ICC-700).
  • Can also provide credit points for green building rating systems like the USGBC’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and the Green Building Initiative’s ANSI/ GBI-01 (Green Building Assessment Protocol for Commercial Buildings).

Reduces Costs, Increases Efficiency

  • Steel framing improves design efficiency, saves time, and reduces costs.
  • Provides a significantly greater strength-to-weight ratio than wood.
  • Allows for larger bays and wider frame spacing than wood construction.
  • Increased flexibility in bay spacing, framing layout maximizes usable floor space.
  • Fabricated off-site, steel reduces on-site labor, cycle time, and construction waste.
  • Shorter construction time results in earlier occupancies and lower financing costs.
