Aesthetically Pleasing

ADVANTAGES OF PRE-ENGINEERED STEEL BUILDINGS


A Pre-Engineered Steel Building can take on any look that a customer desires.

6. Just because it’s steel, doesn’t mean it has to look industrial

Pre-engineered steel buildings have come a long way from the day of the industrial looking arch-type structures with un-painted steel galvalume exteriors. The Prefab Metal Building systems of today, come in wonderful colours for walls and trims. They allow for easy openings on endwalls as well as on sidewalls, windows, front and side entrances and large openings that can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Our standard steel building packages provide customers with several different colour options for cladding. Standard buildings also come equipped with customers’ choice of coloured trim on corners, along the eaves and also frames all openings for windows and doors. Standard colour options provide for a very aesthetically pleasing prefab steel building.

In some cases, customers have come to us with architectural drawings for conventional projects. Understanding the advantages of going with a pre-engineered steel building system over a conventional building design, they ask for our help to transform the project into one of our buildings. Maintaining the architectural exterior appearance of the structure is very important in these projects.

Pre-engineered steel structures can be equipped with stucco panels; faux brick, wood siding, vinyl, or stone facades.  They can also be engineered to carry the load of any finishing materials and signage over entrance ways.



Insulated Metal Panels are also used to make incredibly beautiful appearances which are very purposeful and add functionality and efficiency to the structure.

The engineered nature of these prefab steel buildings allows for each design to be its own unique project, without the increased expense typically associated with customized architecture and engineering.  This allows customers the freedom to plan and design the exterior of their steel structures in a multitude of creative ways.
