One of the biggest advantages of using a SteelMaster Quonset Hut as a grow house is that there are no beams or trusses. Instead of making renovations to an existing building, you can create your own custom grow room design plans. The layout of the grow building is completely up to you, the customer. Your building can be designed to be a full-room grow house or divided up into different rooms.
Taking advantage of the limitless interior space can be very beneficial to growers. A SteelMaster metal warehouse can be used as an all-in-one growing facility, extraction lab, and distribution center. Because of the unlimited interior space, vehicles can easily access the building for loading and unloading.
SteelMaster’s metal structures are one of the most cost-efficient options on the market, especially when it comes to labor costs. You don’t need to be a construction expert to put together one of our buildings. Our prefabricated arches are pre-punched and pre-drilled at our factory before they are delivered to your job site. When the kit arrives, you’ll receive most of what you need to put it together with just the help of a small crew depending on the size of the building.
According to Buildings Guide, the average commercial building cost is between $16 and $20 per square foot. SteelMaster offers steel buildings in a variety of sizes ranging from 10’ to 150’ in width, and the price of each building is approximately $8 to $12 per square foot.
SteelMaster’s metal buildings come in a variety of sizes and can be customized for grow operations of all sizes. When your business expands, your building can as well—without the costly renovations. Our buildings can easily expand with the addition of extra steel panels to the existing structure.
SteelMaster’s metal Quonset Huts are noted for their durability and longevity, especially when it comes to disaster resistance. Our buildings are able to withstand extreme weather conditions including high winds, severe snowstorms, hurricanes, and earthquakes. Our steel prefabricated buildings are sold worldwide and can adapt to any climate. They can withstand corrosion in highly humid environments, whereas wood buildings can get moist and rot.
Unlike steel buildings, grow tents have a limited lifespan. The fabric rests on supporting poles, causing the roof seams to sustain some of the tent’s weight. Over time, this can cause wear and tear to the fabric. Plus, the lightweight frames of grow tents can limit the type and amount of hanging equipment a tent can safely support. Because our buildings are some of the strongest on the market, they can easily support the weight of lighting and ventilation equipment.
While fabric grow tents may be less expensive, they must constantly be cleaned to avoid mold and pests. The overlapping metal arch design of our prefabricated steel buildings makes it almost impossible for pests and other animals to get inside. Steel buildings require little to no maintenance after assembly. This is because of a special coating called Galvalume Plus that helps prevent rusting and basic wear and tear on the arches.
