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.

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

Steel Barns vs. Pole Barns

Steel Barns vs. Pole Barns

When choosing a building, it’s important to look at all of your options. Here are some differences between pole barns and SteelMaster metal barns.

Steel Buildings vs. Fabric Buildings

Steel Buildings vs. Fabric Buildings

From the clear span design to overall shape, steel buildings and fabric buildings seem to have a lot in common. However, there are significant differences that set SteelMaster metal buildings apart from fabric-covered structures.

Engineer For The Worst and Hope For the Best – Disaster Resistant Engineering

Technically speaking, no building company can claim that their building is 100 percent disaster proof, but our buildings are built to withstand a wide variety of environmental factors.


HVHZ Certified
In order to meet the engineering requirements of HVHZ, buildings must be able to stand up to not just hurricane force winds, but also can withstand debris impact.
Florida Product Approval
With the arch design of our Quonset huts and strength of steel, SteelMaster buildings easily meets Florida state product approval thresholds.
Wind Rated
Unlike traditional buildings that can have their roof blown off by strong winds, arch buildings are the roof, making it easy for engineers to design a building that can withstand the strongest winds.
Snow Rated
Low gauged steel combined with roof pitches of the A-Model and X-Model allow SteelMaster buildings to be built without fear of the weight of snow ruining your building.
Fire Resistant
All SteelMaster buildings are fire rated and are considered to be made from a non-combustible materials.
Seismic Rated
Our buildings can be designed to Seismic Design Category E for areas near a major fault with high seismic vulnerability.
“We were searching for a more resilient construction option for us. We knew we wanted to have a building that could withstand high winds from hurricanes.”
James Morris, owner of a Shellfish Hatchery

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.

Steelmaster was excellent to work with, Barrett and Matt made the process very simple and got me exactly the kit that I wanted. The shipping was fast, Jason the truck driver was excellent; he had great communication with his ETA, great backing skills, and was friendly. The kit was fun and enjoyable to put together, having previous experience from doing a Quonset about 15 years really helped, plus the fact of having cordless tools now (which weren’t popular/ were very expensive back then) made the process much easier. Once you get the first few arches up the building gets quite stiff and you can walk away from the project until you have time or bad weather improves, then with every bolt after that you can feel how strong it becomes. Very strong design and good metal. The building should last many many years, I wouldn’t be surprised if it outlives me. Thank you SteelMaster!

We received multiple wrong arch pieces, defective pieces and was even shorted an entire arch piece. However since it was more than 30 days from delivery their “firm 30 day policy” was stated as the reason they wouldn’t replace the pieces. 1/2 of the anchor bolt brackets were also wrong. Directions were horrible and YouTube videos from others were way more helpful. Their customer support people do not understand the products and tech support are not very experienced at building their structures. The tech support person i spoke to said he assembled one in a parking lot before. We have video of the wrong panels, missing panel and manufacturing defective panels that we received. Metal strapping used to ship also caused damage to pieces.They have reached out to resolve our issues. I will update when the have completed the delivery of the missing parts.They did step up and replace the damaged and missing pieces but i highly suggest you inventory and inspect everything during delivery. It will take hours to check everything but you don’t want to go through fighting to get the right parts.We do really like the building it’s a shame the customer service didn’t do the right thing from the first contact because they would have been able to avoid a lot of negative feelings.
