Prefabricated Steel for Commercial Buildings

A prefabricated steel building can be utilized for a multitude of commercial uses, from a showcase to a retail shop. They can also work as additional storage for your current business. There are many details that go into building a structure that will help you serve your customers and build your business, and we’re here to help.

Not only do we provide prefabricated steel structures for commercial use, but our services also guide you through every step of the planning and design process.

Cost of Prefabricated Commercial Buildings 

Cost is always one of the most important aspects to consider when you’re choosing the materials for your commercial building. There isn’t a straightforward answer when you’re asking, “How much will this cost?” The price of a prefabricated commercial building can vary from project to project. 

There are many factors that contribute to the cost of your prefabricated steel, including:

  • Size — The larger the building is, the more steel that you’ll need, which will add to the total cost.
  • Location — The environmental impact on the steel will affect the cost. If you’re constructing a commercial building in an area that has to withstand harsh weather and heavy winds, you’ll require sturdier steel, which will increase the price.
  • Purpose — Some commercial buildings may be straightforward designs, which will have a lower cost than designs that have to accommodate features like deflections for glass.

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

Understanding the building’s limitations can ensure that the prefabricated commercial building will be safe for your intended use, whether you’re trying to stack inventory high or showcase large products. That’s why you must consider the unobstructed interior clearance for what tasks will be taking place. We need to know the proper load distribution throughout the structure to ensure safety and stability, which stems from the clearance requirements.

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

Aesthetics of Prefabricated Commercial Buildings

A commercial building has to be able to properly function while still being aesthetically pleasing for customers. A steel building doesn’t have to look dull! Prefabricated steel buildings allow you to incorporate features such as brick, stone and glass. 

These additions must be discussed early in the design process so that we can ensure that the structure can properly handle the additional weight and pressure for the attachment and safe load considerations.

Wall and Roof Panel Options

Your wall and roof panels provide durability and sustainability for the structure, such as keeping out moisture.

The look of your roof and wall panels can help take your building’s aesthetics to the next level. Not only can you choose colors to represent your company’s identity, but you can also choose different finishes, such as embossed or textured. It’s even possible to get panels that have built-in insulation.

Our prefabricated commercial buildings come in a variety of colors and finishes so they can fit your exact vision.

Accessory Options

There’s more to a building than just walls and a roof; features can add function as well as comfort. There are many accessories that you can consider incorporating into your project. Accessories are discussed during the planning process to ensure that they’re incorporated into your building’s load consideration. 

Here are accessories that are staples in nearly every commercial building and we can include into your package:

  • Windows.
  • Electric-powered doors.
  • Mezzanines.
  • Ventilation.
  • Insulation.
