Benefits of A Pre-Engineered Metal Building For A Manufacturing Facility

Posted by Ben Sparhawk on Aug 16, 2021 4:21:43 PM

If you're constructing a manufacturing facility a pre-engineered metal building is an ideal structure for your facility.

Manufacturing facilities take raw materials and turn them into new products.

No one knows more about that than the pre-engineered steel building industry.

Quality controlled steel manufacturing buildings do create prefabricated metal buildings, after all.

Several benefits come with using a metal building supplier to construct your next manufacturing facility.

We'll go over a few of them below.

What Are The Benefits of Using a Prefabricated Metal Building for Your Manufacturing Needs?

The manufacturing industry thrives on efficiency.

That's why prefabricated metal buildings are perfect for the manufacturing industry.

The fundamentals can vary depending on the material being manufactured and the industry codes and regulations.

Whether you're producing cars, polymer, steel, or prefabricated metal building kits, efficiency is crucial.

Industrial steel buildings offer enormous benefits for manufacturing operations.

Some of those benefits are:

  • High-quality insulation for lower utility costs
  • Protection from wear and tear, earthquakes, fire, mold, storm damages, termites, and other pests
  • Lower costs for insurance
  • Extremely low maintenance
  • Clearspan framing for easily customizable floor plans
  • High ceilings for large product production or mezzanines
  • Unlimited lengths ideal for long production lines
  • Easily expandable
  • Bolt-together framing parts
  • Faster construction
  • Factory-friendly options like overhead cranes and overhead doors

With these available benefits, it's no wonder pre-engineered metal buildings are taking over the manufacturing market.


A Closer Look At The Benefits

Steel structures provide a wide variety of benefits for manufacturing plants.

Let's take a closer look at a few of the benefits of metal building construction for manufacturing facilities:

Fast Construction: All steel framing components are manufactured to exact specifications in quality-controlled factories. The steel pieces for your warehouse will arrive at your job site ready to unload and erect according to the instructions.

Unrestricted Space: The strength of steel allows for clearspan construction. This means that you won't have to worry about interior columns interfering with your efficiency. In addition, there's no other building material available that can accommodate 300-foot-wide structures. You can also have towering overhead space to accommodate overhead cranes or for mezzanine floors.

Strength and Durability: Steel has the strongest strength-to-weight ratio of all other framing materials while staying surprisingly light. Steel's compressive strength leads to less overall weight and fewer framing pieces needed.

Safety: Pre-engineered steel buildings are resistant to heavy winds, rain, fire, lightning, and earthquake damage. No other building type is safer than a steel building.

Eco-Friendly:  Steel is the most recycled material in the world. Prefabricated steel buildings are one of the most environmental-friendly building systems.


Metal Buildings for Factories Are Cost-Effective

All of these benefits are great, but are steel industrial metal buildings cost-effective?

They are. Prefabricated metal buildings produce more building for less money than any other building type.

They do this in several ways:

  • Lighter framing requires less concrete and reduces foundation costs.
  • Factory-made framing and bolt-together assembly reduce your construction time by about 33%, reducing your construction costs.
  • Deep wall cavities leave room for thick insulation that can shrink your energy expenses up to 50% each month.
  • The safety of steel lowers your insurance rates.
  • Steel buildings require minimal upkeep, lowering your operating costs.
