The Advantages of Steel Structure Warehouse

Steel is the ideal construction medium for warehouses and other industrial buildings for a variety of reasons. In addition to being economical and durable, steel also provides the simplest solution for building designs requiring large expanses of open space as well as significant design flexibility.

For these reasons and others, steel building materials now comprise 71 percent of the new commercial building market and an impressive 95% of the industrial building market.

The main advantages are as following:

Cost-efficiency

  • Faster design/build process. Once your warehouse plans are submitted to us, the building will be preengineered and fabricated by our specialists. This results in a more affordable and streamlined process from start to finish, yielding ready-to-erect building components that are shipped directly to your job site.
  • Lowered labor costs. Because the warehouse is largely prefabricated, construction timelines can be reduced by as much as 30% to 50% or more. Time equals money in the world of construction so the faster you can build it, the less money you'll shell out in terms of labor.
  • Reduced maintenance costs. The third savings comes via lifetime costs. Since metal buildings are low-maintenance, building owners save significantly on general maintenance, repairs and replacements over the course of the building's lifetime. This adds up to tens of thousands of dollars or more, especially when you consider that high-quality metal roofs and exterior panels can last upward of 50 years and that threats of fire, pests and building rot are dramatically minimized when compared with wood and other organic building materials.

Durability

Steel is resistant to many of the typical threats experienced by wood, such as rot, mold, mildew, pests and fire. However, a well-designed steel building is also more resistant to wind, heavy snow loads and seismic activity.

Clear span-ability

A "clear span" design is one that can extend for 100 feet or more without any load bearing poles, posts or columns installed in the interior of the building. Depending on your needs, a warehouse can be designed to span as much as 150 to 300 feet. This makes it easy for industrial-sized equipment and machinery to be set up as well as for vehicles and people to move safely within the structure.

Flexible design options

Clear span design is one example of steel's ability to accommodate specific design options. Your warehouse can also be designed to incorporate a mix of clear span spaces and traditional office spaces or living spaces.

Eco-friendly

Eco-friendliness is more than just a trend. Data shows that green buildings are increasingly in demand by both building owners as well as the customers that will purchase their products/services. Steel is an inherently sustainable building product due to the fact that it utilizes recycled materials during the production phase and is 100% recyclable at the end of its lifetime.

The key to reaping these five benefits is to work with a qualified steel structure supplier. The combination of a solid building design tailored to your needs, high-quality materials and expert construction yields a finalized design that will meet your any needs.
