Why Are Metal Buildings The Best Choice For Medical Facilities?

Posted by CDMG Team on Apr 19, 2021 10:56:04 AM

Pre-engineered metal buildings are the premier choice for a number of industries. 

Metal buildings are ideal for several applications, including churches, recreational facilities, and warehouses.

But another industry that stands to benefit from the use of steel buildings is the medical industry.

Many medical buildings are prefabricated hospital buildings, and thanks to the design and customization abilities, it's hard to tell that these facilities are metal buildings. 

But the use of steel in medical facilities hasn't been around forever.

In the past, the medical industry used wood structures that weren't as ideal for their facilities as metal buildings are.

But, what is it that makes steel the ideal construction material for hospitals and other medical facilities?

In the article below, we will go over several benefits of metal structures that make them the best choice for the medical industry.

The Difference In Prefabricated Metal Buildings For Residential and Industrial Buildings

Posted by CDMG Team on Feb 16, 2021 10:12:52 AM

A pre-engineered metal building is a structure built using a structural steel framing system engineered to fit your project requirements.

The predetermined components of the structure are manufactured off-site in a factory.

Components are pre-cut, pre-punched, and prefabricated per your design specifications.

When the building is finished, it is delivered directly to the project site, where they may be assembled by a qualified metal building company like CDMG.

Prefabricated metal buildings are a cost-effective, more durable alternative to the more expensive and less durable traditional building methods.

You also aren't giving up any style, comfort, or safety.

The days when steel structures were ugly and reminded you of a horse barn are long gone.

Prefab metal buildings made with steel are both elegant and durable. 

From industrial facilities and warehouses to restaurants, medical offices, and residences, custom metal buildings are a proven solution for various projects, and the metal building will have the utilities that can support a number of different businesses.

Which is better, pre-engineered metal buildings or concrete buildings?

Concrete tilt-up construction and the poured in place or cast in place method pours concrete into wall and column forms.

The concrete then sets, drying in the forms. After that, the forms are removed, and the concrete is finished.

Pre-engineered metal buildings utilize commercial-grade steel columns and rafters to create easily assembled frames.

The frame form the skeleton of the building. Thanks to the strength to weight ratio of steel this allows for open floor plans.  This is one of the reasons that pre-engineered metal buildings are ideal for sports and recreational facilities
