What Are The Benefits of Industrial Metal Buildings?

Posted by CDMG Team on Jun 1, 2021 11:09:04 AM

Industrial and commercial businesses have made pre-engineered metal buildings an important part of their business plans.

Prefabricated steel buildings can be used in various applications, like the automotive manufacturing industry, oil and gas facilities, distribution centers, warehouses, recreational sports facilities, and other industrial facilities.

Industrial steel buildings perform well, look good, and they will stand the test of time.

They are built to last and will last much longer than many other traditional buildings.

It's estimated that about 34% of low-rise buildings built in the United States utilize metal building design.

A majority of Fortune 1000 firms use metal building manufacturers for their facilities.

Metal buildings are well suited for many industrial applications.

In the article below, we will discuss just a few benefits of industrial metal buildings.

PEMB's Are Cost-Effective

Pre-engineered metal buildings can cost up to 30% less than traditional construction methods.

Who doesn't want to save money on their next building project?

These cost savings are due to the efficient design process that utilizes BIM technology.

Pre-engineered metal buildings are also constructed in factories, so you can be sure your steel structure will be of the highest quality, and you won't have to worry about any weather delays.

Industrial metal buildings have a much longer lifespan than traditional structures, and they require much less maintenance.

They are also resistant to pests, mold, and corrosion.

All of these factors add up to substantial cost savings over the life of your building.


Prefab Steel Buildings Are Durable

Industrial steel buildings are the most durable structures available.

They can stand up to daily wear and tear and even natural disasters, allowing them to last much longer than traditional buildings.

Pre-engineered metal buildings are the only structures strong enough to fight all environmental adversities, and they require minimal maintenance to keep them operating as efficiently as possible. 



Steel Buildings Are Energy Efficient

It seems like energy codes change every day, and they get more stringent each time they do change.

That's why it's important to keep energy efficiency in mind when designing a new structure.

Insulated wall and roof panels make metal buildings perhaps the most energy-efficient option available.

In addition to insulated panels, metal buildings are adaptable to several energy-efficient insulation systems.

Having a low-profile roofline can also eliminate unnecessary headroom to heat and cool.

Many pre-engineered metal buildings also contain over 70% recycled steel and are 100% recyclable.

Today, most steel building systems offer an opportunity to capitalize on earning LEED points right from the start, allowing you to help the environment and save on energy costs.


Metal Building Systems Are Fast & Efficient

Many building owners are happy to know that professional engineers design metal building systems using the industry’s most advanced technology.

This simplifies the entire construction process and significantly reduces erection time.

This means you can enjoy lower “in place costs” as well as quicker occupancy.

Industrial buildings made with steel also have shorter construction times because of their ability to be erected in less-than-ideal weather conditions.

Pre-applied textured finishes create a one-step installation process and eliminate multiple pass applications.

With conventional structures, the weather has a more direct impact on the duration of the project.

Construction crews and business owners have to depend on ideal conditions to proceed with each step of the construction process.


Steel Buildings Retain Their Value Longer

Quality prefabricated steel buildings retain their original beauty and value exceptionally well, especially when compared to traditional building materials.

Steel buildings stay straight and true for decades, and the stronger connectors used in custom steel buildings will not work out as nails used in ordinary wood structures do.

The sturdy metal walls and roof panels of custom metal buildings also come with warranties, so you're covered even if something does happen.



Industrial Construction Ideas Great For Steel

Nearly any industrial business can benefit from a metal building because of the numerous design options that are available.

Metal building solutions work well for:


Steel Building Systems Are Perfect For Industrial Buildings

No matter what industry you are in, steel is an excellent option for your next building.

You want your building to be durable, flexible, fire-resistant, safe from the elements, and cost-efficient.

You get all of that and more with industrial steel buildings.
