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
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.
