Benefits of Steel

Benefits of Building with Steel

Lower Construction Costs

Precision Steel Building are very cost effective. All parts are labeled, pre-drilled and welded all clips on the building as well. Goes together like a big erector set.

Your construction costs may be reduced by 60%.

Ease of Expansion

We offer an expandable rigid frame end wall. You can grow at the same rate as your structural requirements.

Durability and Weather Resistance

Steel is one of the strongest building materials available today, and can withstand Colorado’s extreme weather conditions including high winds, severe snow storms, hurricanes, and even earthquakes. Our buildings are engineered to your local building codes & loads typically done by elevation.

Shorter Construction Time

It typically takes less time to construct a steel building systems structure than other building types. This is because the pre-engineered metal building systems components are designed and pre-built to be easy to assemble. Processes that take place on the construction site with other building materials, take place before metal building systems components have even left the factory. Smaller buildings that would take weeks to build, can be up in days. Larger buildings, that would take months, can be up in weeks. 10,000 square ft commercial structures can be completed in just under three months, etc.

Insurance Advantages

Because of its superior strength and fire retardant nature, steel has been proven to withstand extremely harsh conditions, leading insurance companies in most areas to offer rebates of up to 40% to insure metal building systems structures.

Minimal Maintenance

Steel buildings require little to no maintenance, unlike a pole barn that will expand and contract and requires maintenance every 2-3 years.

Alternative exteriors

Steel construction technology has come a long way. Steel buildings can be finished with the same exterior coverings that structures made of any other building material are. Choose to add a finish that will allow your steel building to match seamlessly with its surroundings, whether they be your stucco house, your garage of wood and masonry, or your paneled storage building. Choose any of these traditional finishes, or use a set of wall and roofing panels with an aesthetic color and surface-texture combination.

Sustainability; Building Green with Steel

The energy consumption due to the construction and maintenance of buildings, constitutes a sizeable portion of our eco-footprint. When you choose a steel building systems structure for your construction project, however, you can be guaranteed that you are making an environmentally responsible decision. To confirm this, take a quick look at: http://www.recycle-steel.org/

“A typical 2000-square-foot home requires about 40 to 50 trees, about an acre’s worth. With steel, only the equivalent of about six scrapped automobiles is needed.”

Environmental Benefits of Building with Steel

  • Material recycledand 100% recyclable – every bit of North American steel forged contains recycled steel, and is 100% recyclable.
  • Highly efficient use of materials
  • Long life cycles – metal building systems structures last a long time
  • Most steel products don’t release pollutants(like some treated wood products) – be sure to ask your manufacturer if they use environmentally friendly paint and coatings
  • Reduced heat island effect:buildings featuring cool metal roofing reduce impact on microclimate and habitat
  • Energy efficient– steel buildings heat and cooling loss statistics (especially around doors, windows, foundation, and roofing) are significantly lower than other types of construction

The US Green Buildings Council has developed the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green buildings rating system, which is based on six key sustainability categories. Choosing a metal building systems structure can improve the LEED Sustainability rating of your construction project in five out of the six critical categories used to determine your rating!

When you choose a steel building structure, you are building for a sustainable tomorrow!
