Prefab Metal Buildings Designed For Easy Shipping & Construction in Hawaii
From the traditional backyard shed to a custom masterpiece, SteelMaster’s team of experienced building specialists will help you design a building that will fit your needs as they have for decades.
In addition to thousands of commercial and residential customers, our buildings have earned the favor of every military branch, as well as the FBI, DEA and the Army Corps of Engineers. Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam uses several SteelMaster buildings to store their valuable equipment. One of our buildings is also used as a concession stand for the base’s movie theater.
SteelMaster’s metal buildings are cost effective and can save you money years down the road. Our steel modular buildings are easy to put together. Depending on the size of the building, they can be assembled by a team of two to five people within a matter of days.
SteelMaster makes the building process much easier than a traditional building because our structures only require one size nut and bolt to assemble with no welding involved. No welding means you’ll save money by not needing a certified welder and a certified welding inspector.
Plus, our buildings require very little maintenance which saves a ton of money in repair costs, and they are also energy efficient.
Our buildings will also save you money on shipping costs. The steel arches of our buildings are stacked on a palette and shipped from our state-of-the-art factory to ports. Even arches for larger SteelMaster buildings will fill only one shipping container. Because our metal arches are packaged so neatly, shipping costs are reduced by thousands of dollars.
There are several natural disasters that threaten the islands of Hawaii, especially when it comes to housing. SteelMaster’s arch-style homes have survived dangerous hurricanes, severe hail storms, tornadoes and other severe weather events.
After the Kilauea volcano erupted on the Big Island in May 2018, many communities were completely wiped out by lava. However, a photograph showed that the steel arches of a SteelMaster building were still standing.
This is because our buildings are made of commercial grade steel that has been subjected to several rigorous tests to see how it holds up in an intense fire. Plus, the eruption temperature of Kilauea lava was about 2,140 degrees Fahrenheit, but it takes more than that amount of heat, 2,500 degrees, for steel to even begin to burn.
As the volume of land use and building codes has increased in Hawaii, obtaining a building permit has become complicated.
However, SteelMaster’s experienced team of professionals already know what documents examiners require to obtain a permit for a building and can provide you with some of those documents, making the process less stressful.
Plus, our building specialists can potentially save you thousands in engineering fees with our in house engineering. Every building comes with state stamped engineered blueprints for your specific location.
Our buildings will also save you money on shipping costs. The steel arches of our buildings are stacked on a pallet and shipped from our state-of-the-art factory to ports.
Even arches for larger SteelMaster buildings will fill only one shipping container. Because our metal arches are packaged so neatly, shipping costs are reduced by thousands of dollars.
Hawaii is ranked as one of the top states in the U.S. when it comes to green buildings per capital, according to the U.S. Green Building Council. In 2014, the Aloha State had 30 certified green building projects, representing about 2.7 million square feet of real estate and amounting to 1.95 square feet per resident.
If you’re interested in a green or sustainable building, SteelMaster’s building specialists will help you design an eco-friendly building. SteelMaster is proud to have a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified consultant who has experience in sustainable design, construction and operations standards.
All of our buildings are made of at least 80 percent recycled steel and are covered in Energy Star-rated Galvalume Plus coating, which reduces energy consumption by reflecting heat. This special coating will keep your building cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
There are also several ways to customize our environmentally friendly buildings to increase their sustainability. Customers have the ability to take advantage of natural sunlight by installing large windows. They can also install 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 the building’s eco-friendly potential.
Hawaii’s agricultural industry is thriving due to its rich soil from heavy rainfall and mild year-round climate. There are over 7,500 crop and livestock farms and over 30 percent of the state’s land usage is dedicated to farming.
Greenhouse and nursery products are the leading agricultural commodities in Hawaii. Pineapples are vital crops to the island as well, with most of the plantations located on the island of Maui.
SteelMaster’s metal agricultural buildings are the perfect solution for any farmer’s storage needs. Our farm storage building kits come in different models that can be customized to meet your space and size requirements. The prefabricated kits have been used to store large tractors and other equipment, hay storage, sand storage, grain storage and more.
Other agricultural commodities in the Aloha State include coffee, cattle and hogs.
Mike M. created a building for his own coffee production company, Pua’a Lani (Hog Heaven), using a SteelMaster metal shipping container cover and two salvaged shipping containers.
The plants on the property can produce thousands of pounds of coffee, and Mike needed to make sure he had adequate space to handle production demands. Initially, Mike purchased an S-Model 40 x 40 Quonset Hut that he planned to use as a storage facility and a processing area for the coffee.
When Sales Manager Scott Buckman told him about SteelMaster’s metal shipping container covers, Mike decided that was the better option for his needs. At first, he thought it didn’t seem like something he would be able to do, but once he put up the first arch, he discovered the process was a task he could handle.
