Are you curious about the benefits of choosing a pre-engineered building for your next construction project? Is it really as cost effective as everyone says it is? What are the money saving benefits of choosing a metal building for your next commercial construction project?
These are all great questions to ask before choosing a metal building for your project. The advantages of going with this building solution over conventional methods are endless, but in this article we’re going to focus solely on how a pre-engineered building can save you money.
Firstly, a pre-engineered building can be erected more quickly than conventional construction methods. The term pre-engineered can be taken literally here. No time is devoted to traditional construction techniques that require parts to be drilled, cut, fitted or welded on site. This attribute results in less money spent during the actual construction phase. Additionally, there is less waste at the job site because the building is pre-made at the manufacturing plant to precise specifications. This also means less disruption in your business’s productivity. The faster the building goes up, the quicker you and your employees can get back to work.
Building a little further on the previous advantage, because pre-engineered metal building systems are delivered and installed quickly, the need for on-site changes, on-site subcontractors, and other added expenses incurred with conventional construction methods are almost completely eliminated.
These buildings are amazingly strong and durable. Constructed primarily from steel, your pre-made building will withstand the elements and the test of time. Additionally, steel is around 66% recyclable which offers environmental benefits as well as financial benefits. Butler Manufacturing uses up to 74% recycled steel in their buildings. For you this means better energy efficiency, a longer building lifespan, and a reduction in materials used to build your project, all resulting in reduced costs for building repairs, maintenance and energy.
Steel buildings are safer than traditional construction materials. Aside from its obvious advantages in strength and durability specifically when discussing the weather, steel buildings are also heat and fire resistant. Because steel does not burn, insurance companies will often times offer discounts and reductions in premiums making your pre-engineered building investment just a little bit sweeter.
