Advantages of Pre-Engineered Construction
Design Flexibility: Today’s pre-engineered buildings can be used along with, or in combination with, traditional buildings.
Pinned Based foundations – which reduces the amount of bending or moment being transferred into the foundations. This can reduce the size of the column foundations by as much as 50% over conventional fixed based columns
Design Optimization: the building design can reduce the weight of the steel. This savings can be as much as 30% compared to conventional steel buildings.
Pre-engineered buildings take an average of 33% less time to erect compared with other types of construction.
With no need for interior columns or bearing walls, the open clear span allows the interior design flexibility needed in many industrial and commercial applications.
Will handle extremely large loads, such as Over Head crane loading, piping, HVAC, sprinkler and other collateral loading.
Elastic by nature, the buildings are engineered to flex in the event of an earthquake and to meet or exceed seismic loads.
Almost any shape and size of building for almost any use, with variable eave heights, lengths, widths and cladding possibilities.
Without the restrictions of bearing walls, the design limitations of conventional buildings do not apply. Almost any type of building material can be incorporated, and there is a wide variety of attractive choices for trims and cladding.
Produced in a controlled manufacturing environment in accordance with strict national standards to ensure quality and consistency. CAN/CSA A660 and CWB Certified.
More resistant to corrosion and decay than other building materials. Roofing systems can last upwards of 30 years without any significant maintenance.
Exterior claddings provide excellent water and moisture protection.
Made of steel and are non-combustible
A variety of insulation systems are available, including fiber glass metal building insulation, foam insulated “sandwich panels” and sub purlin systems, ensuring the building is well insulated and cost effective to heat.
Operating Costs: The cost to operate and maintain pre-engineered buildings is among the lowest in the industry. Superior thermal efficiency reduces heating and cooling bills. Space age finishes and metal standing seam roofs cut maintenance costs to a minimum.
Movable Assets: A pre-engineered building can be taken with you when you move or it can be sold to a third party. These buildings can be disassembled and then transported to a different location or sold, unlike traditional wood or concrete buildings.
Materials stay straight and true, which prevents air leaks and costly energy loss.
Designed to allow future additions and expansions, as required.
