Prefabricated Industrial Steel Buildings

When it comes to constructing an industrial or manufacturing facility, a prefabricated steel building is one of the best courses of action. It can provide ample space and variable roof heights to ensure that your building can handle your employees and equipment without compromising safety and efficiency.

Not only can we provide prefabricated steel structures for your industrial needs, but our services also guide you through every step of the planning and design process.

Prefabricated Industrial Steel Buildings Cost 

Industrial and manufacturing facilities are often large-scale projects. They need to be safe for employees utilizing large machinery, such as conveyor belts and crane systems. That means it’s essential for you to find an affordable construction option.

Prefabricated steel buildings are a more cost-effective option when compared to many other materials. The lightweight metal needs less labor and construction costs. Your first question will likely be, “How much will this cost?” But there are several factors that have to be considered, including:

  • Size — Industrial or manufacturing facilities, such as plants, average more than 10,000 feet. The price tag will increase based on the amount of material required for the structure.
  • Location — The environment that you’re building the industrial building in will play a role in the price. If you’re located in an area that requires heavier steel to keep out the elements and stay sturdy during rough weather, it can increase the cost.
  • Purpose — The use of the structure is often factored into the price. There are many building features that will need to be accommodated for an industrial or manufacturing environment, such as suspended catwalks.

During the design process, we’ll help you look at every contributing factor so you know what cost to expect. We consider every aspect and work to help increase your cost savings by reducing weight and load considerations if possible. We can provide you with a free quote to start.

Determining Your Clearance Requirements

Every building should put safety first. This is especially true in an industrial facility where heavy machinery, chemicals and power tools are used. That’s why it’s important to have an unobstructed interior clearance for what tasks will be taking place. The ceiling height is an important consideration. These facilities may house tall machines and crane beams. The clearance requirements will help us determine the proper load distribution throughout the structure. That way we can ensure safety and stability.

We’ll take a look at what you plan to do with the space. We’ll decide how the structural elements will work together to accomplish them safely. This means reaching an interior clearance without exceeding a maximum exterior ridge height.

Aesthetics of Prefabricated Industrial Steel Buildings

When you think of the word “industrial,” you probably think of dull colors and bare-bone walls. Even though function and safety should be at the top of your priority list, you can also consider aesthetic features such as glass, brick or stone that will elevate the environment.

The aesthetics of the building must be discussed early in the design process. We want to ensure that the structure can properly handle the additional weight and pressure for the attachment and safe load considerations.

Wall and Roof Panel Options

Durability and sustainability are essential for industrial buildings. To that end, we have wall and roof panels that fit your particular needs and environments and are able to provide a sturdy structure while being resilient against elements like wind and rain. You can even choose colors that reflect your company’s personality.

We offer a variety of different panel finishes, such as embossed or textured. You can even choose insulated panels. Proper insulation can help keep the temperature comfortable for your workers during their shifts.

Accessory Options

There are many accessories that you should consider adding to your building to ensure the safest and most productive industrial or manufacturing workplace. It’s important that the structure can be configured for accessories like ventilation systems and roll-up doors for deliveries and shipping. 

As with aesthetics, accessories are discussed during the planning process to ensure that they’re incorporated into your building’s load consideration. 

Customizing the Project for Your Needs 

Prefabricated steel buildings provide design flexibility while still having materials that are energy efficient, durable and low maintenance. The customizable capabilities of our steel building products can provide you with exactly what you need for your industrial project.
