SteelMaster Buildings is proud to offer environmentally friendly buildings. These eco-friendly structures are designed to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on the natural environment by efficiently using energy, water and other resources, protecting occupant health and reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.
Whether you’re looking to build a green home or sustainable retail establishment, turn to SteelMaster’s building specialists to help you create an eco-friendly structure that’s as attractive as it is sustainable.
All SteelMaster buildings, whether they are specifically green, eco-friendly buildings or not, are made of at least 80 percent recycled steel and are covered in Galvalume Plus coating, which reduces energy consumption by reflecting heat. This keeps your building cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
There are also many options for adding onto and customizing our environmentally friendly steel buildings in order to maximize their sustainability. These include:
- Taking advantage of renewable resources such as use of sunlight by installing large windows using solar-powered energy sources.
- Utilizing high efficiency windows and insulation to reduce energy use and increase efficiency of the building envelope (the barrier between conditioned and unconditioned space).
- Orienting windows, walls, awnings and porches in a way that provides more natural light, maximizing solar gain and thereby lessening the need for electric light during the day.
- Installing on-site renewable energy sources such as solar power, wind power, hydro power or biomass to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the building and maximizing your eco-friendly building potential.
