Eight SteelMaster Projects Around the World
SteelMaster is proud to have sold more than 50,000 buildings in more than 40 countries. Our international buildings serve many industries including agriculture, mining, and the military, among others.

1. Minera Gold Fields – Peru
No matter what materials you mine or where you are located, SteelMaster’s team of project managers will help you find a durable building that will fit your needs. Minera Gold Fields, the company that runs the Cerro Corona Mine in Peru, uses SteelMaster buildings for its mining operations. The mine is located on the eastern slope of the western Andes, between 3,600 to 4,000 meters above sea level.
2. Perendes Technologies – Cyprus, Greece
Andreas “Andy” Perendes is a distributor for SteelMaster in Cyprus and Greece. Andy’s clientele ranges from small sheds and custom homes to large warehouses and big commercial projects.
With over 50 projects completed to date, he is one of our most successful partners. He frequently works with SteelMaster’s Senior Design Specialist William Swafford on many of his projects.
“We started off with a couple of projects for a few clients in Cyprus, and the next thing you know Andy bought eight structures to create the first SteelMaster outdoor showroom,” William said. “He built one main structure as his office and corporate headquarters, and the others were small examples of all of our models.”
3. Nan, Inc. – Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands
This double container cover project is located on the remote island of Kwajalein Atoll, which is part of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The total land area of the atoll amounts to just over 6 square miles.
“It’s literally a speck of land,” said Senior Project Manager Greg Broderick.
SteelMaster’s structures are specially designed to handle high wind loads in areas like the Marshall Islands. Every building is built to meet every state’s local building code requirements. We design our buildings in accordance with codes determined by the International Building Code and ASCE-7.
Although the small island is secluded, shipping was easy because Nan, Inc. handled the logistics once the material was delivered to California.
Additionally, the panel design of our structures makes shipping overseas easy. The panels are stacked on top of each other and framed with wood, then covered with a metal case for additional protection.
The panels are placed in a shipping container to ship to your destination. Several buildings can fit into a 20′ or 40′ container depending on the size of the buildings.
In some cases, the container can even be used as one of the walls of your building so you get the most value out of your purchase.
Ovidiu Popa is a longtime client and friend of SteelMaster. Over the course of 7 years, he has successfully bought and installed thousands of meters of SteelMaster structures across his native country of Romania.
Popa supplied a Q-model 15m x 100m to the nation’s largest manufacturer of windows and doors to store their valuable inventory and secure their assets against the elements and theft.
After SteelMaster manufactured and shipped the structure from our factory all the way to Romania, Popa and his small team of six members were able to build this massive structure in just two and a half days.
5. Royal Caribbean – Berry Island Bahamas
This building is used for storage on Royal Caribbean Cruises’ islands. The high wind load requirements on the island presented a bit of a challenge during the project’s design. However, SteelMaster’s arch system is High-Velocity Hurricane Zone certified and can be designed to withstand winds over 200 miles per hour.
6. World Vision – Haiti
SteelMaster has worked with various organizations to assist in recovery efforts, including AECOM, USAID, the United Nations, as well as non-profit organizations like World Vision.
In 2010, a magnitude 7 earthquake shook the country of Haiti, killing at least 100,000 and destroying more than 280,000 structures. The Assembly of God Church in Washington State purchased three buildings from SteelMaster and donated them to the affected area in Haiti after a devastating earthquake.
One building was used as a church and the other two were used for schools. A group of 50 people helped assemble these buildings. Most of the construction was completed in one month and the entire project was completed in three months.
7. Stedji Brewery – Iceland
From nano to micro to craft, SteelMaster’s team of experienced project managers can help you create a beverage production building that helps meet your bottom line.
Stedji Brewery is a family-owned company in Iceland that started in 2012.
The brewery has its own fountain of pure spring water that has been tested and proven to be among the purest and cleanest sources of water found in the world. They use this natural spring water as it comes from nature without adding any chemicals in their brewing procedure and guarantees that all of their beers have a refreshing pure taste.
Adults and children can anticipate a fun-filled visit to Hangar 37, a military-themed airsoft field in Spain that has incorporated two SteelMaster Quonset Hut hangars into their overall design.
When visitors travel to this oasis of adventure, they have plenty of options. They can get the airsoft war started on the battlefield, they can practice their aim at the shooting gallery, take a load off in the bar and coffee shop, or find a few trinkets to take home in the shop.
To enhance the look of the military-style theme park, owner Javier Garcia Juarez found SteelMaster buildings through an online search. His father also owns three Quonset hut hangars, so Juarez was already aware of the benefits of owning one.
Juarez is an industrial engineer so he purchased a building he knew he could trust and one he could actually put together himself with a little help. He rented a few tools and asked three people to help him erect the arches. He says he looked at a few other options on the market, but he was drawn to the shape of the Quonset Hut.
He owns two SteelMaster buildings and uses one of them as the main reception area.
SteelMaster has a department that specializes in serving the Latin American population and offers direct service in Spanish to clients like Javier. The Latin American Department is unique in the steel building industry, as it can support native Spanish speakers.
