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.

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.
