Top 10 Advantages of Using Pre-Engineered Industrial Metal Buildings for Your Business

Steel is a great material for building industrial buildings. It offers durability and robustness that wood cannot. Plus, it lasts longer and is more weather-resistant than traditional construction, making it cost-effective.

The good news is you don’t have to spend too much time and money building with steel. Here at Armstrong Steel, we offer industrial pre-engineered metal buildings designed to your specific requirements.

Whether you need a fabrication center, assembly facility, or manufacturing hub, we can design and manufacture a structure for you. We have years of experience building industrial steel buildings, so we are confident in our ability to deliver exactly what you need. Our industrial structures are pre-engineered to serve your specific purposes while meeting performance requirements. You can be sure that our buildings are tailored to your unique specifications — not a copy of older designs that which may not meet your needs.

If you’re still unsure about choosing industrial pre-engineered metal buildings, we have prepared a list of the top 10 ways your business can benefit from them!

#1: Durable, long-lasting structures

A well-designed steel-framed industrial building usually weighs less than wood, block, or concrete buildings. This is because of the material’s high strength-to-weight ratio, so you don’t need to use a lot of it to make a strong, long-lasting structure. Your prefabricated industrial metal facility will hold its appearance and value without the constant and thorough upkeep required by traditional structures.

At Armstrong Steel, we design pre-engineered industrial metal buildings with load-bearing in mind. Our in-house engineers will ensure your structure can withstand strong winds, rainwater, heavy snow, maintenance loads, and earthquakes. We consider the building’s load-bearing capacity, strength, material thickness, and force transmission requirements to ensure a structurally stable and robust build. Additionally, we make sure your facility meets local building codes to avoid problems down the line.

#2: Save time building

After finalizing the design, we fabricate industrial pre engineered metal buildings at our facility. This includes the wall and roof components while ensuring you have the necessary instructions and drawings to assemble the structure on your property.

Depending on your building’s size and complexity, you assemble it by yourself or hire a seasoned metal contractor. Regardless of your choice, our pre-engineered industrial metal building should take only a few days to complete. With a traditional wood and concrete building, it could take at least a few months before you can start using your facility.

#3. Save on labor costs

Our industrial pre engineered metal buildings are quick and easy to erect to help reduce labor costs. Armstrong Steel Building Systems are pre-engineered, and our team ensures all parts seamlessly fit together, with numbered components, pre-punched holes, and detailed assembly drawings to streamline the erection.

#4. No waste

Here at Armstrong Steel, we always do our best to maximize the use of all materials to avoid residual waste. We design every industrial building in-house and engineer your structure to meet your location’s codes and loads. As a result, you pay only for the materials we use, and there are no surprise costs down the road. Plus, it eliminates excessive material usage.

#5. Versatile

Industrial pre-engineered metal buildings can have specific framing systems to suit your requirements. They can be modular or clear-span to work with any application, from warehouses to manufacturing plants and assembly centers.

At Armstrong Steel, our systems can accommodate any design. Our pre-engineered steel buildings can even incorporate other construction materials, so they look less industrial and more stylish to meet your branding requirements.

#6. Cost-effective to expand

Our pre-engineered industrial metal buildings come in virtually endless dimensions, so we can determine the length, width, and height based on your situation and future requirements. The interrupted space means your structure can clear-span greater distances, which is difficult to achieve with wood.

In addition, industrial pre-engineered metal buildings simplify future expansions, with endless options for lengthwise or crosswise extensions. You can expand your current facility instead of building a new one from scratch to save money.

#7. Save money on insurance

Unlike traditional construction, pre-engineered industrial steel buildings are often cheaper to insure. You could save up to 30%, thanks to the building’s fire and weather resistance, durability, and longevity, which significantly reduces liability.

#8. Focus on your business

Pre-engineered industrial metal buildings are built to last! Our structures require minimal maintenance and upkeep, so you can focus more on your business and customers. In addition, this saves you more effort, time, and money in the long run.

#9. Increased safety for your business

Steel is an incredibly robust and sturdy material compared to wood. Our steel-framed industrial buildings won’t succumb to natural disasters and heavy storms. Plus, the non-combustible material does not ignite to add fuel to structural fires. This means more reliable protection for your assets and business in general.

#10. Worry-free structures

At Armstrong Steel, our industrial pre-engineered metal buildingsare covered by the longest guarantees our industry has to offer. Here are the following warranties that come with your structure:

  • 35-year rust-through-perforation warranty for the roof
  • 50-year structural warranty
  • 40-year paint warranty
