Steel buildings are used for virtually all building applications and surpasses construction engineering standards. It has a broad array of finishes to give you the look and design you want. Steel is supreme in versatility and designed and has the highest strength to meet all of your needs. With it's high level of elasticity to withstand seismic impacts in earthquakes, it's clean strong applications and superior spans gives to you the safest best use for indefinite years of services. Steel buildings have little to no maintenance in their upkeep. Steel often receives a discounts on insurance premiums due to the none combustible UL fire rating. Steel building are the best choice for it's lower cost, longevity, durability, low maintenance, and recyclability.
According to the Building Efficiency Initiative, a smart building is one that delivers services that improve productivity at lower cost and environmental impact over the lifecycle of the building. A smart building is stocked with technology across it's systems of the building operators.
Steel building accomplished all of this and is 96% completely recyclable. This efficiency saving you money from day one.
Steel is sturdier than wood, better at tension loads (seismic) then masonry or concrete, It is better able to withstand natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes or tornadoes. Because of this, steel-framed cost less to insure. Steel is 60% stronger per weight of other materials.
Steel has very low to no maintenance. Steel Roofs lifespan 45-75 years vs. wood asphalt 20-30 years. Steel does not warp or rots. You will always have straight walls, floors and rooflines, and you will never have to worry about insect damage.
Unlike wood, steel is not UL combustible rating. It does not burn and does not catch on fire. Because of this, local fire and building codes in some areas require the use of steel. Also, insurance costs are typically lower.
