Advantages of Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings

Flavor FirstPre-Engineered Steel Building systems offer many advantages for businesses and religious organizations interested in constructing a durable and functional structure. Not obvious at first is the fact that a steel building does not need to look like a steel building….on the exterior or the interior!  More on this in our next post.

Carolina Specialties Construction has completed several pre-engineered steel buildings which are being used for a variety of functions; warehouses, retail businesses, processing plants, churches, manufacturing facilities, and public buildings, to name a few.

Advantages of building with pre-engineered steel systems include;

  • Steel buildings are versatile, allowing for great flexibility in design to suit your application
  • Open floor plans are possible due to the capability of the steel frame to span large spaces without intermediate supports
  • Building structure arrives at the job ready to erect, reducing building time, which saves labor time on site
  • Delays due to weather are less of a factor since the steel components are prepared off site in a factory
  • Waste is eliminated since only components needed for the structure are delivered to the site
  • Steel is recyclable so it’s use is environmentally responsible
  • There are many options which promote energy efficiency and can earn LEED points
  • Steel is durable and dimensionally stable, producing a strong building envelope which will not harbor insects, withstands heavy winds and snow loads
  • Interior and exterior finishes can be veneered on top of the steel walls to create a wide variety of appearances

We can help you determine if this system is a good option for your particular needs whether you are considering a new building or an addition to your existing space.
