Eco-friendly Buildings

SteelMaster Buildings is proud to offer environmentally friendly buildings. These 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 a building that is as attractive as it is sustainable.

All SteelMaster buildings, whether they are specifically green 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. You can learn more about the sustainability of steel by visiting our Recycling Steel page here.

There are also many options for adding onto and customizing our green 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

Wow these are great buildings.  If all designers took a little more time to design greener buildings we would all be better off.  This is a great example of how energy efficiency can be great and a competitive price can be maintained. - Mike of Solar Well Pumps
