A Prefab Metal Building for Manufacturing

Why a Custom Metal Building Creates a Great Factory Constructing a prefab metal building for a manufacturing plant makes perfect sense. Think about it. Manufacturing turns raw materials into new products.  Fortunately, no one understands this concept better than the pre-engineered metal building industry. After all, quality-controlled steel manufacturing buildings create prefabricated steel buildings. Prefab Metal Building Benefits for Manufacturing…

Should You Build with Concrete or Steel?

Part 1: Comparing Reinforced Concrete and Prefabricated Steel Buildings Is steel or concrete the best choice for a low-rise commercial or industrial building project?  For this comparison, let’s look specifically at reinforced concrete buildings versus pre-engineered steel building systems. Poured-in-place— also known as cast-in-place— empties concrete into wall and column forms.  The concrete “sets,” drying in the forms.  The builder…

Is It a Pre-engineered or a Prefab Building?

Understanding Building System Terms You’ve probably seen construction articles throwing around terms like “prefab building,” “pre-engineered building” and “modular building.”  But what do these terms actually mean?  Let’s get down to basics. Pre-engineered Building A pre-engineered building generally refers to a metal building. Steel lends itself particularly well to pre-engineering.  Steel’s properties and strength are well known.  Created in mills…

Incredible Adaptable Prefab Metal Buildings

Why Steel Buildings Rule in Low-Rise Construction Prefab metal buildings dominate low-rise construction— and with good reason.  Economical to build, simple to erect, and cost-effective to operate, pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB) are adaptable and reliable.  Today PEMBs are the first choice for all commercial and industrial low-rise construction— and for residential accessory buildings, too. Incredibly Flexible Designs A fundamental rectangular…
