4 Reasons To Use A Pre-Engineered Metal Building For An Aluminum Manufacturing Plant

Pre-engineered metal building systems have a variety of designs that are all very unique.

The systems are made up of flexible structural parts that work together to make something efficient, useful, and easy to change.

The systems are built upon the flexibility of structural elements that work together to create something efficient and highly customizable.

When building owners use pre-engineered buildings, they can reduce the number of unknown conditions and variables during the building process.

This makes the construction process easier, requiring less money, time, and materials.

This is one reason why metal buildings are becoming more popular for manufacturing buildings.

In the following article, we'll go over four reasons why you should use a pre-engineered metal building system for your aluminum manufacturing facility.

What's A Pre-Engineered Metal Building?

Prefabricated metal buildings are made with a structural steel framing system that can be designed to fit the needs of your aluminum manufacturing plant.

All the building components for your steel manufacturing building are built in a climate-controlled factory to meet your exact project needs.

When the parts arrive on the job site, they have already been cut, punched, and put together based on how your designs.

Having everything ready to go and pre-built allows for much faster construction times.

When the building arrives at the project site, a qualified metal building construction company puts it together.

And there are several aluminum factory-friendly options for your aluminum manufacturing building, like overhead doors.

Let's take a closer look at a few benefits of metal building construction for aluminum manufacturing facilities.


Top 4 Benefits Of Using A Pre-Engineered Metal Building For Your Aluminum Manufacturing Facility

1. Unrestricted Space

The size of aluminum facilities can vary tremendously, from small facilities to massive structures, some well over a million square feet.

Fortunately, steel structures can be as big as you need them to be.

The strength of steel allows for clearspan construction.

With clear-span capabilities, you don't have to worry about interior columns interfering with your designs and efficiency.

No other building material available allows for almost unlimited lengths in your designs.

You can design 300-foot-wide structures or have towering overhead spaces to accommodate overhead cranes or mezzanine floors.

And the construction time for metal building kits is still much faster than conventional construction times, even if they are massive.


2. Structural Strength

Structural steel is the strongest building material available.

You can also add specialty coating to components to make them even more resistant to corrosion and dirt.

The longevity and sustainability of a steel building kit save time and money during the lifespan of manufacturing buildings.

They will also withstand extreme wind speeds and aren't as vulnerable to storm damage as conventional construction.



3. Low Maintenance

No matter what exterior finish you choose, whether it's strong steel panels, brick, stone, tilt-up concrete, or a combination of finishes, the exterior of a steel building requires little maintenance.

And with steel construction, there is no need to paint every few years like you would with a wood exterior.

Steel is termite and rodent resistant, so you don't need to regularly treat your structure with harsh chemicals.

And as an inorganic material, steel doesn't support mold, mildew, or other fungi growth.

Steel framing won't rot, warp, split, twist, or creep like wood framing will over the years.

All of this will keep your operating costs down.


4. Energy Efficient and Eco-Friendly

Steel buildings for manufacturing facilities are very economical because pre-engineered steel buildings use energy-efficient materials.

The thermal and insulating properties decrease the need for more energy to maintain your heating or cooling needs.

This makes them very cost effective and keeps your utility costs down.

And steel is the most recycled material in the world, so it's very easy on the environment.

Prefabricated steel buildings are one of the most environmental-friendly building systems available.



Depending on the scope and scale of the aluminum manufacturing business, there are several benefits of using a pre-engineered metal building kit.

You can have a compact single-layer facility or a large, sprawling multi-layered complex structure.

Whatever your needs are, a metal building kit can meet them.
