Three Key Short Term Benefits of Using Pre-Engineered Buildings
When you build with steel, whether it is for business, civic or personal use, the possibilities are endless. How do we know this? We’ve built hundreds of pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs) through the decades and we have seen and experienced the results ourselves. After providing high-quality, affordable steel building components for a wide variety of industries for 50+ years, our family-run company has first-hand knowledge of the multiple benefits of using prefabricated metal buildings for certain projects in the industrial, commercial, agricultural, aviation, government, and community sectors.
There are multiple long term advantages when you build with a pre-engineered metal building system, however, in this post, we will highlight three primary short-term benefits of using pre-engineered buildings that we’ve seen time and time again, whether you’re starting from scratch with a metal building structure or adding metal roofing or metal siding to an existing structure.
Short Term Benefit #1 – Metal Buildings Are Highly Customizable
Don’t let words like “pre-engineered” and “prefabricated” steel components fool you. No two buildings are alike. Each structure is built using a steel framing system specifically engineered to fit your project requirements. In fact, we encourage our customers to send us the drawings and specs of a project so it can be customized to fit their specifications.
When you look through our portfolio of steel building structures, you’ll see a range of designs and functionality that were created to fit the needs of the client whether it was an air hangar, a business park or a church. Our pre-engineered steel buildings can also be complemented with a range of color choices and different structural additions like trusses, mezzanine floors, fascias, canopies, and crane systems.
Short Term Benefit #2 – Shorter Construction Time
Pre-engineered metal building structures built by Pacific Building Systems are completed on average three to five times faster than conventional construction. How do we do this? All of the components of the pre-engineered metal structure are pre-cut, pre-punched, and prefabricated off-site and come ready to assemble so the building process is significantly more efficient than traditional methods of onsite construction.
As your building is being pre-assembled, your contractor can get a jump start on construction by preparing the site and clearing the land. Once both stages are completed, the structural components are carefully labeled for easy assembly, expertly packaged and delivered directly to your site using our private fleet of trucks, ready to build so your contractors can get started right away and waste no time.
Short Term Benefit #3 – Save Money With Lower Construction Costs
Prefabricated steel building systems are usually the more practical and affordable choice because they reduce up-front costs on nearly every phase of construction without losing quality. In fact, steel buildings are some of the sturdiest, most cost-effective structures you can build.
Our well-crafted design and fabrication methods save our clients money in the short term by reducing unnecessary waste and allowing for faster installation time than other brands, thus minimizing field labor expenses. However, that is just the beginning. Our prefabricated steel building structures offer lower life cycle costs for greater return on investment including lower insurance premiums, lower maintenance and better durability so your building will retain its value longer and be enjoyed for generations to come. We’ll go into greater detail on these many long term benefits in our next post.
We hope this post helps to clarify some of the questions that you may have about building with a custom metal building system.
