Advantages of Steel Buildings: Fast Construction

May 24, 2020


Prefabricated Metal buildings are quick from beginning to end.

11. It’s a Quickie

We frequently talk about the fact that Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings are designed to be efficient in every way. This efficiency, pertains to more than just the steel structure itself – The entire building experience from inception to assembly, is quick and efficient in every way.​

When a customer places an order for a metal building system, they can expect to receive stamped engineered drawings in as little as two weeks.  In as few as four more weeks, they can expect to have their steel building arrive by truck to their site. This is a typical time frame – the complexity and size of the project may diminish or extend these times in either direction. Furthermore, once on location, following the simple erection process and understanding the ease of assembly makes the construction time faster too.

The engineering process ensures for quick assembly, as all components for the steel building arrive on site as a kit. And because the pre-engineered components are easy to assemble, of course it follows that these metal buildings are faster to construct than any comparable conventional or wood structure.

The speed of construction comes from the fact that all prefab steel building parts are organized, available and at the ready, with no welding and only minor cutting to do on-site. This coupled with the simplicity of the pre-engineered building with its limited number of standardized components, allows for quick and easy assembly by construction crews.

Less time spent erecting, equates to diminished construction costs and a faster occupancy.

Re: Testimonial

Hi Michael

I want to let you know how much I appreciated doing business with you and the Norsteel team. From my first contact, and throughout the entire process, Norsteel and you in particular were very helpful and informative. With your concise input, I was able to enter each phase, knowing in advance what I needed to prepare, and what Norsteel was doing on my behalf to ensure accurate and timely drawings, delivery schedules and support that ultimately delivered an amazing building that I am proud to show off to friends and family.

Your supplied engineered drawings were approved by my building inspector without hesitation. The delivery of materials was very well executed, with advance discussion of delivery day and time to accommodate my schedule. The material was packaged and loaded perfectly, and every piece was labeled to coincide with the bill of materials and erection drawings. The kit includes every item required for assembly – including nuts, bolts, screws, rivets, and gaskets and all were supplied in ample amounts and colour matched to the exterior ordered where applicable.

After much internal debate, I decided to undertake construction myself with a very small crew of willing friends. The erection drawings and instruction books provided were well written, easy to follow, and gave very detailed information about every aspect of the assembly process which allowed us to proceed in confidence knowing that we were doing it right… the first time. The fact that every piece was easily identified, the correct size, shape, and all the bolt holes lined up with adjoining pieces made our progress quick and enjoyable.

I was amazed at how your insulation delivery coordinator took every effort to ensure that my insulation arrived at exactly the right time. (not too early or too late) Upon my notifying Norsteel of an approximate delivery timeline two to three weeks in advance, the coordinator called me a few days later to confirm, then called again about 7 days prior to the arranged date. Of course, I was guessing at when we would complete the skeleton throughout these conversations, as we had not yet begun…. The structural steel went up much faster than I had anticipated, and so I called the coordinator to see if they could reschedule delivery on very short notice – three days earlier than I had previously arranged. He immediately replied that they would accommodate my updated request! Awesome!

The sense of pride and accomplishment we gained by erecting our own building is very rewarding, and the money saved in doing so helped to make the project that much more affordable and enjoyable. Thanks for all your help!

Best Regards,

Dave Morton

Our EasyBuild Model is built for an even quicker turn-around time and is available for projects with widths up to 35’.  The EasyBuild is simpler to design, engineer, to manufacture and to construct – But it is still all-steel, durable strong and dependable.

Specifically made with our do-it-yourself customers in mind, Norsteel’s EasyBuild steel building kit can be erected easily, with little to no special machinery, in just a week or two. Imagine going from discussing your new garage or pool house, to sitting or working inside of it, within only a few weeks’ time.

Closing Out

Today’s Pre-engineered steel buildings are arguably the fastest mode of construction.

Each prefab steel building component is designed and made specifically for your metal building. Each component is designed and manufactured to match perfectly with the others. Each piece is labelled and easy to identify, and each piece is cross-referenced on the assembly drawings. This means that your prefab steel building – regardless of size, will arrive as a perfect kit, and each piece will fit together precisely. And because each component is detailed and specifically made for each particular steel structure, it follows that erecting the building is also quick and easy.

​In fact, every stage is faster when you purchase a pre-engineered metal building system – engineering, fabrication and construction – making them the quickest solution for durable, valuable covered space.

The entire process from design to engineering to erection, all within a few months’ time.
