Innovative Steel Aviation Buildings

We’re Experienced With Aviation Hangars

Air travel is an ever-changing industry. It faces unique demands in safety, environmental concerns, security and circulation. Steel is a top-choice material for aviation buildings because of its light weight and high tensile strength. We prefabricate steel building components in compliance with global industry standards and local building codes. Make your aircraft hangar or airport building architecturally inspiring. Combine steel with other materials like precast concrete, glass, brick, stone and veneers.

We’re Trusted Nationally

National Steel Buildings is a certified Varco Pruden Builder. The second-largest metal building manufacturer in the U.S. trusts us to represent them, and you can too. 

We’re With You Every Step of the Way

Our team of suppliers, designers and builders have a reputation for excellent communication and a high commitment to quality and service. We understand everything from designing on paper to erecting in the field.

Why Steel Aircraft Hangars?

Aviation buildings need a lot of vertical and horizontal space uninterrupted by support beams or columns. Steel has the tensile strength to span long distances without losing its integrity. It also has the ductility to hold its shape during earthquakes and storms. Prefabricated steel buildings allow for ample floor space with high ceilings and eaves. Wide bay door systems allow for even the largest airplanes.

Aircraft hangars and airports often require different sections for multiple uses. Our in-house engineering team factors in fire suppression systems, energy efficiency, ventilation, crane systems and even offices into their designs.

Examples of Steel Aviation Buildings

Whatever your needs, National Steel Buildings can provide a high-quality facility designed and built to your exact specifications and time frame. We proudly use only American steel in our products, and our components are preengineered to make construction fast, safe and simple. 

Here are some examples of aviation buildings that benefit from steel framing and components:

  • Aircraft hangars.
  • Airport terminals.
  • Airport buildings.
  • Aerospace manufacturing plants.
  • Ground control towers.
  • Aviation pavilions.
  • Aviation display halls.

Building Aircraft Hangars With Steel

We use sophisticated design technology to prefabricate steel components. That means there’s no cutting, welding or specialized tools required on the job site. Using steel framing and materials significantly cuts down project time frames, costs and safety issues. That means you save on materials, insurance, labor, scrap disposal and more.

National Steel Buildings offers one streamlined solution from inception to design, manufacturing, delivery and construction. Our engineering and design experts make sure you’re getting the most cost-effective and structurally sound solutions for all your aerospace needs. And they can do it with a quick turnaround. Whether you have a construction partner you like to work with or not, we can collaborate with any level of on-site support you need. 

How Much Do Steel Aircraft Hangars Cost?

That’s a difficult question to answer, and it depends on a number of different factors. The location, size, use of the structure and time of year will all affect the pricing of everything from the steel itself to transportation and construction services. 

National Steel Buildings delivers significant cost savings to our customers in a couple of different ways. First, we’ve been buying and building nationally for 17 years, so we have the buying power to get premium materials for a fraction of the market price. Our design experts also use value engineering to save you more. We take all the building details into consideration and reduce weight and load considerations wherever possible.

Can Aviation Buildings Be Aesthetically Pleasing?

Absolutely! First and foremost, aviation buildings need to be safe, durable and functional. Steel can meet all of these architectural requirements and more. The high-tech wall and roofing systems available today come in attractive colors and textures. They function with energy efficiency for precise temperature control. Steel components can be combined with traditional building materials such as stone, brick and glass. Use them to create a look and feel that represents your aerospace business.
