Many companies are experiencing major benefits of prefab metal buildings. When it comes to commercial construction, there’s no comparison. Steel prefab is the overwhelming choice over other materials. In today’s marketplace, wood framing may hold a grip on the residential market, but steel claims the lion’s share of all other construction markets. In fact, Grand View Research tells us that steel prefab construction accounts for over 70% of all non-residential new construction in developed countries like the United States.
There are too many variables when it comes to materials like wood. Every source for wood used to manufacture buildings differs from location to location. Depending on the environment in which the source was grown, its strength fluctuates due to the stress trees can face over the course of their lifetime.
On the other hand, metal is a manufactured material. Therefore, metals used for prefab commercial buildings are consistent in their integrity. Metals such as steel are not subject to the elements. Consistency is attainable, because the manufacturing process is controlled from start to finish; rather than being vulnerable to the threat of moisture or insect infestation.
Using a prefabricated metal to construct your commercial building allows for a much wider span within the structure. This is due to the fact that metal buildings do not require load bearing walls or support columns to be spaced closely together. Allowing for a larger, uninhibited floor space gives you flexibility in providing a better workspace and maneuvering heavy equipment.
Metal prefab buildings also provide for quick and customizable construction. The materials for a steel structure are manufactured and assembled off site in a controlled factory. This process is much less labor intensive than using other building materials; which can be higher maintenance. With the material being prefabricated, construction time is cut by as much as one third versus wood framing.
Once construction is complete, the life of a prefab metal building is decades longer than ordinary wood-framed structures. Rather than degrading over time, the integrity of a steel building lasts throughout its entire lifetime. No other building material matches the strength of steel so a prefab metal building stands up to whatever you throw at it.
