How Pre-fabricated Metal Buildings Can Save Your Construction Schedule
Saving time on your construction projects is crucial because even though it's cliche, time is money in the construction industry.
Pre-engineered metal buildings save your construction schedule, and money, in many ways.
The faster a construction project is finished, the quicker you can get started on another project on your schedule.

And since metal building construction is the fastest in the industry, that means you spend less on builder’s insurance and labor.
Faster construction means more time for more projects.
Time is of the essence for commercial or industrial ventures.
The faster a commercial or industrial building is completed, the sooner can open for business and start earning a return on their investment.

Work With A Metal Building Specialist
When you decide to build with a prefab metal building, you need to work with a metal building specialist.
When you work with a company that has experience with metal buildings, you get someone who knows that both the product and metal building construction is critical.
The metal building specialists at STEVENS bring years of hands-on construction experience and a thorough knowledge of pre-fabricated steel building systems to the table.
STEVENS knows the right questions to ask so they can get a complete picture of what your project will need before giving you a building quote to begin the metal building construction.
They are also prepared to answer any questions you have.
They can also offer valuable insights and knowledge about your pre-fabricated metal building that can streamline the project, saving even more time.
Their experienced team helps bring every project in on time and budget.
High-Tech Engineering and Design Software
Steel is a strong, consistent, and predictable building material, lending itself well to state-of-the-art computer-aided design software.
When you use sophisticated steel engineering software, you can dramatically reduce design time for your metal building system by making optimal use of steel’s inherent strength.
Three-dimensional structural analysis software can assure structural integrity throughout all prefab metal buildings projects.
This design software can quickly and efficiently generate manufacturing drawings for individual framing components, speeding up the manufacturing process.
Fewer Framing Pieces
Steel has the strongest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material, meaning you don't need to use much of it in your building.
You can use design and engineering software to create the most efficient use of steel.
That means that metal buildings' framing requires far fewer framing components to get an excellent, durable structure.
Fewer pieces mean less time spent on the framing of prefab metal buildings.
Everything Arrives Compliant
When you build with a pre-engineered building kit, it arrives already compliant with your current local building codes.
That means there is no hassling with building inspectors to get your construction project up to code.
Everything Ships Together
All the options you order with your framing package will arrive with your steel.
So if you ordered exterior sheathing, interior steel sheathing, skylights, wall lights, vents, gutters and downspouts, and insulation materials, they would all come at the same time as your steel.
You don't have to wait around for shipments from other sources, so your metal building construction can begin right away.
Faster Framing Erection Saves Time
Your structural components will arrive from the factory in a pre-engineered metal building system, ready to assemble.
You don't have to cut, weld, punch, or drill anything.
Everything in your kit will come marked and ready to bolt and screw together for quick metal building construction.
A prefab metal building from STEVENS works much like a life-sized erector set.
You will also save time on the lateral framing with pre-welded clips.
Most clients find they reduce construction time by 33% or more when using prefab steel buildings.
Less Clean-up and Waste
STEVENS metal building systems will drastically reduce your waste, especially when compared with other methods of construction.
The little waste that does remain after construction is quickly sold at a local scrapyard.
