Save Money on Construction and Operating Costs with PEMBs

Pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs) cost less to buy and build that other traditional buildings systems.  However, that is just half the story.  PEMBs continue to save you money after construction.

How Metal Buildings Cut Material Costs

The same incredible strength that supports today’s skyscrapers also frames over 50% of today’s commercial low-rise structures and 95% of all industrial low-rise construction.  That strength is steel.

Granted, the benefits of steel buildings should be enough to convince you to choose metal buildings over alternative building methods.  After all, steel buildings outperform and outlast all other structures.

However, the bottom-line rules.  Steel would not be so popular if were not also extremely cost efficient.  Here’s why prefabricated metal buildings are so economical:

  • Recycled steel is not only eco-friendly, it is also less expensive to produce. Moreover, no matter how many times it recycles, steel’s strength never degrades.
  • Steel possess the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material. Consequently, a lot less material creates a much stronger structure.
  • Factory-made goods sell for less than handcrafted goods. Why?  Factories cut costs by producing in volume, and by increasing efficiency.  Therefore, factory-made metal buildings also offer the most economical, precision-made structures.

How Metal Buildings Cut Construction Costs

Prefabrication makes metal buildings quick and easy to erect.  There is no culling, measuring, or cutting required.  The building kit arrives ready to assemble.

  • On large commercial and industrial projects, time is money. Slicing construction time by 33% brings huge savings to a building project budget.
  • Small to medium sized projects allow competent do-it-yourselfers to erect their own structures with a few friends. They save money on construction, have a great time as they build, and earn bragging rights.
  • Churches, organizations, and small businesses sometimes opt to slash construction costs by banding together to erect their structures.

How Steel Buildings Cut Day-to-Day Costs

Shrewd people look beyond today’s cost to the long-term costs of anything they buy, including buildings.  Steel buildings reduce operating costs several ways, including:

Built Strong to Last Long

Steel buildings last decades longer than wood-framed structures.  Moreover, they hold their good looks and value far longer, too.

If expansion becomes necessary in the future, the building owner finds adding steel endwall extensions economical to buy and erect.

When a metal building finally outlives its usefulness, the owner simply sells the steel to be recycled once again.
