Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings

Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings in Fitchburg, MassachusettsIf you own or operate a commercial or industrial business and you’re looking for new space to relocate or expand, you might not at first consider pre-engineered metal buildings in the greater central Massachusetts area. You might even think that pre-engineered metal buildings would be a much more expensive proposition than a traditionally constructed building. But you should definitely reconsider.

Pre-engineered metal buildings offer a number of key benefits and cost-savings. Pre-engineered metal buildings have greater structural strength and are more weather-resistant because they are carefully constructed under controlled conditions, unlike building out in the unpredictable New England weather.

The main advantage pre-engineered metal buildings have over traditional, “stick-built” structures is that they are virtually maintenance free. Steel is rust and corrosion resistant, can be easily painted if desired, and stands up well to wind, snow and even fire. If a steel-framed pre-engineered metal building is erected on the proper footing it can remain standing and in good repair for 20-30 years or even longer without maintenance or painting.

In fact, pre-engineered metal buildings offer several significant benefits, including:

  • Reduced insurance rates because pre-engineered metal buildings resist a variety of damage more easily than traditionally built buildings
  • Improved insulation for substantial energy (and cost) savings because pre-engineered means they’ve been carefully designed and improved using the latest integrated design techniques to ensure maximum energy efficiency
  • Low maintenance costs because the steel and other rugged construction materials used for the exterior require little attention
  • Fewer foundation and settling problems because pre-engineered metal buildings are lighter overall than traditionally-constructed buildings
  • Less expensive remodeling and expansion costs because pre-engineered metal buildings are modular, enabling faster, easier expansion
  • Better value retention because high quality pre-engineered metal buildings retain their beauty and value exceptionally well over time
  • You can recycle the building at the end of its life – steel holds its value remarkably well in the recycling market and is capable of returning a substantial portion of your investment after your pre-engineered metal building has outlasted its use

Pre-engineered metal buildings are the logical choice when a maintenance free, long lasting, weatherproof structure is required. To learn more about the features and benefits of versatile pre-engineered metal buildings, contact the metal build experts at D.R. Poulin Construction.
