Why do steel frame warehouse buildings perform so much better than their counterparts? It’s an important question to answer before beginning your new storage project. The answers will open up new potential for your organization and for your budget.
Here are just a few reasons steel frame warehouse buildings are the real deal:
Steel frame warehouse buildings are easy to modify.
Once a wooden structure it’s built, the design is pretty much set in stone. You can’t disassemble a portion, change its shape or expand on it easily at an affordable cost. Steel, on the other hand, does allow for easy modifications. In fact, it’s easier to build the shape and size you want from the get-go than with any other traditional building material. This makes it easy to ensure your warehouse always fits the needs of your business, and because support beams aren’t required, you’ll always be able to put your space to its best use.
Construction with steel is quick.
Compared to building with wood or concrete, building with steel is a fast, seamless process. While the problem of needing a new warehouse rarely pops up overnight, the faster you can build a safe and secure structure, the faster you can use it to fuel higher revenues for your business.
Steel frame warehouse buildings are much more affordable.
When considering the different types of materials widely used—steel, wood, cement, stone—it’s obvious which choice is best for your project. This is especially true for warehouses, as building costs per square foot go down as the size of your project expands. It’s also much cheaper to expand a steel structure. Industry experts estimate your initial construction costs will be up to 40 percent cheaper.
Steel frame warehouse buildings present lower liabilities.
Steel frame warehouse buildings are extra durable and resistant against several problems responsible for increasing costs and creating needless losses. You won’t have to worry about fires resulting from the elements or nearby buildings. You won’t have to worry about water either. If properly prepared and installed, your steel building will be impervious to mold and rot as well. These protections lend themselves to increased security and safety, and as one popular consequence, you’ll wind up paying much less for insurance than you would with a building made of other materials.
Steel constructions are more versatile than you probably realize.
If you’ve only checked out older steel warehouses, or worse, old agricultural buildings, you have no idea what today’s technology really provides. Insulated panels allow for temperature-controlled facilities, while noise-canceling technology helps keep your operation quiet, day or night. Using steel can help you expand your business hours and responsibilities without drawing notice from your competition. Most importantly though, you won’t be a nuisance in your community, regardless of how the land around you develops throughout the years.
