Prefabrication Saves You Money AND Delivers Quality

Prefabricated means we’ve done all the engineering of the building materials for you before your building is delivered. The buildings are cut to specifications in the factory, then shipped as a kit to the building site to be constructed.

You’ll get the precision and quality of using multi-million dollar fabrication equipment at a factory without having to pay for a custom engineered structure.

SPEAK TO AN EXPERT


When choosing to construct a prefabricated steel building, there are big advantages:

  • Less expensive: A prefab building is generally less expensive to build than a custom engineered structure. Our standard building kits are designed for do-it-yourselfers to save on high construction costs.
  • Easier to construct: The components included with your SteelMaster building are made to exacting standards of accuracy for easy assembly with predrilled holes and bolts as the only required fasteners for construction. In other words, a lot of work of measuring and drilling is already done for you!
  • High quality: Our state-of-the-art factory is fully equipped with the latest technology and highly-skilled production technicians who go the extra mile to manufacture superior quality products to our customers.

Our Construction Manual Takes You Step-By-Step

The SteelMaster construction manual provides you with general step-by-step information on the assembly of your metal Quonset hut kit with illustrations.

Some of the information includes:

  • Storage guidelines
  • Construction and building insurance
  • Installation of parts and accessories (ex. Endwalls, Windows, Skylights, Vents)
  • Grouting, caulking and completing the building
  • Building maintenance and preventing damage
  • Warranty certificate

*Keyway foundation is standard on all buildings. Industrial Base Foundation option shown is for illustration purposes only

LEED Certified Buildings – Eco-Friendly While Still Being Budget Friendly

Due to steel’s recycled content and functional properties, building products made from our steel can be credited with the maximum number of points for the Materials & Resources Credit aspect of the LEED rating system.

Our steel building products contribute positively toward points under credits 4.1 and 4.2 of the LEED rating system:

  • Credit 4.1 (1 point) “Use materials with recycled content such that the sum of postconsumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least10% (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project.”
  • Credit 4.2 (1 point) “Use materials with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the pre-consumer content constitutes at least 20% of the total value of the materials in the project.”

In addition to recycled content, steel can contribute toward several other LEED credits, either directly or indirectly. 

Our in-house LEED Engineer William Swafford, has received the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USCGB) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate certification.

Literally the best company I’ve worked with when it comes to buying a building. They gave me the best quality Quonset... Hut I could ask for, and it’s the best looking building in my neighborhood! Backed with a 40 year warranty? Maintenance free? The sales rep and the administration team took such good care of me. Shout out to Monica, she was so professional and helpful. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quality building that’ll stand for a lifetime.read more
