The terms “steel building kits” and “pre-fabricated” are often used interchangeably with the term “pre-engineered metal buildings.” All these terms denote a given fact; in choosing the building, clients are offered a range of design variations that have been engineered to fit together during erection, which meet the specific and often unique requirements. The term also applies to the amount of pre-delivery work that takes place in a factory. When metal buildings in Charleston SC arrive, on-site, very little work is needed to erect them and prepare them for the specific needs of the client.
The advantages of metal buildings:
Metal buildings in Charleston SC have several distinct advantages over other types of structures, including:
- Shorter time to occupancy: Pre-engineered metal building components are built off-site. This means that it takes far less time to complete the structure. While the building components are being fabricated, other infrastructure work takes place simultaneously; there is no loss of valuable time. Small buildings constructed in this manner can be up and ready for occupancy in days, rather than weeks; large buildings can be up in weeks rather than months.
- Lower cost of construction: Pre-engineered components are produced using state-of-the-art automated equipment, so, cost of production and subsequent erection is considerably less costly. Metal buildings can be erected on-site by semi-skilled labor; there is no need for highly paid carpenters, masons, etc.
- Easy to expand the footprint: Metal buildings make expansion easy. Typically, one sidewall or end wall is removed, the new structure is erected, matching panels and roofing are installed, and the expansion is complete. Expansion can comfortably take place without disrupting the day-to-day activities.
These are but three of the many advantages to specifying a metal building. Others include minimal maintenance and lower insurance premiums due to the fire-resistant properties of steel.
