General Steel Metal Buildings

General Steel Buildings:

For decades, metal buildings were typically purchased through contractors for commercial and industrial projects such as warehousing facilities or manufacturing spaces. Then we coined the phrase “if you need space, you need the General” over two decades ago because wanted to make the benefits of steel buildings available to not only businesses but also individuals, churches and organizations; all without the need for a middleman. In the years that followed, we assembled the most experienced team in the industry, sourced the highest quality materials available and built the most recognized metal building brand known for its solutions to any construction project.

Custom Designed for Any Use Imaginable

General Steel buildings are used for: metal garages, barns, workshops, breweries, auto shops, church sanctuaries and everything in between. Our buildings are the most durable, flexible and affordable choice for construction projects of all kinds and carry the longest warranties in the industry. Which is why for over 20 years General Steel has been America’s first choice and our team has designed, delivered and constructed solutions for virtually every use imaginable.

Unmatched Experience

We account for every detail from the start so you don’t have to worry about costly change orders in the future or a vulnerable underloaded building. Most importantly, your investment is safe with us and your building will last for generations when you choose General Steel over the other inferior buildings you may be considering.
