Prefabricated steel construction has been around for a long time, but modern advances in design have given new and diverse functions to the material. Prefab steel's structural and practical advantages make it an excellent choice for many building projects, even residential ones.
At Poulin Construction Inc., we’re a one-stop source for the design, fabrication, and assembly of quality steel structures.
Advantages of Prefab Steel Buildings
Steel is one of the strongest, most efficient, and most eco-friendly construction materials available. Compared to wood, steel has superior durability and strength. It is not susceptible to temperature warping, termites, or fire. It also has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any construction material.
With modern computer-assisted design and manufacture (CAD/CAM), steel building components can be precisely fabricated to minimize the cost of raw materials, which means lower total costs. Steel is the most recycled material in the United States, and all Poulin Construction Inc. buildings use post-consumer steel in forging new steel components.
Reasons to Build Steel Buildings
Aside from the financial and structural advantages of steel, there are practical reasons to build with it. First, the cost of steel construction is significantly cheaper than other materials. The savings continue with insurance, as steel's durable and fire-resistant characteristics make coverage cheaper. Add to that the ease of dealing with a single material from a project's conception to completion, and you have a winning combination!
