Quick & Easy Construction
Cold weather, high winds, heavy snow, and frozen ground are all things that residents in Alaska have to consider before building a Quonset Hut. Because of this, the opportunity for assembling buildings is much shorter compared to other states.
Some of our buildings are located in Valdez, Alaska, where residents can see as much as 551 inches of snowfall during a harsh winter. Snow can start as early as September, but most of the accumulation happens between January and early March so for at least three months of the year (or year-round in the extreme north of Alaska) your building needs to be strong enough to survive accumulated snow weight.
With consistent cold weather and snowfall, construction time is typically limited to late spring and warmer summer months so the need for a building that can be delivered and erected quickly is critical. SteelMaster’s prefabricated Quonset Hut kits are quick and easy to assemble—you don’t need to have any building experience to put together our structures. Many of our buildings can be shipped within 30 days and put together in just a few days. Buildings can also be easily unbolted, dismantled and moved to a new location to be reinstalled.
