Why Choose Steel Buildings?
The size and scope of your project or the type of building you need doesn’t matter–prefabricated steel buildings save you time and money without sacrificing quality, strength, or durability. Steel buildings go up faster and require less manpower to erect than wood frame buildings, saving you on labor costs. Since it is a manufactured product, there is less waste compared to traditional construction, so you save on material costs. Plus, steel buildings have a lower initial cost than traditional wood frame structures because the steel is lighter and costs less to ship than wood. Since steel buildings are fire-resistant, purchasing a steel building could save you up to 30 percent on your building insurance premiums.
Our highly experienced team of engineers can design the steel building that’s right for you in Smithfield, North Carolina, whether you need a basic shop, a commercial building or a special-use structure requiring large, open spaces. Our designs are guaranteed to meet your needs as well as your local building code requirements.
The strength and durability of steel make prefab steel buildings “lifetime structures.” They can withstand all types of weather, and with the proper roofing and cladding maintenance, they will easily last a hundred years or more. The strength of steel makes it the only material available that can easily accommodate structures with large, unencumbered spaces of up to 250 feet, like arenas, industrial buildings for manufacturing, and religious-use buildings.

PEMBs For “Green” Construction
Pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs) are touted as one of the most environmentally friendly forms of building construction. PEMBs are meticulously designed to provide the required building function with the least amount of construction waste. Also, steel is a recyclable material, adding to the green aspect of PEMB construction.
Not only is PEMB construction “Green”, but it also allows for greater understating of the final costs and building time involved for your next building project. All these aspects make pre-engineered metal buildings the ideal solution for large commercial and industrial buildings all the way down to smaller buildings such as shops and utility buildings or our ExpressLine buildings.
