Why steel for retail building?

Designed to accommodate changing requirements and needs, metal buildings can easily be expanded or reconfigured as more space is required or usage changes. With low maintenance and a life span of up to 50 years or more, steel buildings provide a superior ROI and much longer life than traditional wooden buildings.

  • Durable & Fire Proof: Resistant to fire, mold, and pests, steel is one of the toughest and most resilient materials available, offering maximum protection against extreme weather conditions.
  • Space-Optimized: Offering the maximum usable floor space, clear span designs create functional retail spaces, while multi-span designs boost space with strategically located columns.
  • Customizable Design: Accommodating your needs and those of your tenants, steel offers optimal design flexibility with a variety of exterior and interior options for an aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Rapid Construction: With most components precut and welding completed during production, assembly can be completed onsite with minimal cutting/trimming as a DIY project or constructed using a professional crew.
  • Cost-Effective: Professionally designed and manufactured, steel buildings offer low construction, maintenance, and insurance costs combined with longevity and reduced weather-related damage or loss.
