Pre-engineered steel buildings are used for many traditional applications such as agricultural, manufacturing, business and commercial facilities. However, there are numerous contemporary uses for steel buildings that you may find surprising.
A contemporary purpose for steel structures is evident in their use for universities and schools. More pre-fabricated, pre-engineered steel structures can be constructed and in working order in a fraction of the time it would take a traditional structure to be put up, and this fact is particularly favored by school boards and councils. The monetary savings in terms of onsite labor for the school or college can be considerable, and the rapid erection of the structure has only a minimal impact on the calendars of year-round educational institutions.
The convenience of steel building assembly has been noted by churches and temples. A number of temples and churches have little money on hand for building undertakings and they quickly determine that many conventional construction processes (masonry, wood, or brick) are frequently double the present market prices of steel. As I-Beam pre-engineered metal building structures basically bolt together for assembly, most churches and synagogues with bigger memberships might install their own structures. Parishioners with a building background can also group together to erect a church while lessening worksite overheads.
Automobile centers also enjoy and benefit from an all-steel building system style. Truck and auto businesses like the fact that their building can implement an upper floor which stores auto parts on the vertical rather than more expensive horizontal inventory parts storage. This allows previously redundant overhead space to be used without necessitating a larger and costlier building system.
Commercial quality steel as a building option is also becoming increasingly popular with entertainment centers and restaurants. Promoters enjoy the wider span framework application for their venues, which many Rigid I-Beam structures feature. With no inner load sustaining supports, clear span design allows for the maximum use of space within the steel building. In nightclubs this is necessary for line-of-sight matters and also for the convenience of uninterrupted floor spacing for eating, dancing, or holding large events in other venues.
Contemporary pre-engineered steel structures are being chosen for several other purposes – municipal buildings, warehouses, and bowling alleys are just a few. For that next building project, consider a new prefab metal structure, regardless of your elaborate or distinctive your design and plans.
