Working with General Steel is a collaborative process that ensures that your final product reflects your specific needs. The process starts with a two-way conversation between you and our experienced team. We want to know exactly how you envision your auto repair shop, how it will fit within your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the shop to ensure that your building is equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.
While steel is best known for its strength, there are a few other factors that make steel a superior building material. One advantage of steel construction is design flexibility. This is especially important for an auto repair business because you must be able to maximize your allotted space. From the workspace to the store layout, the design of your facility not only affects work processes, but also has the potential to affect sales. And if expansion is needed in the future, steel building kits can be easily modified to fit your needs.
Clear span framing requires no interior columns for support, which allows more space for work bays and retail sales.
Our two most popular door options for auto shops are roll up and sectional doors. The advantage of a roll up door is that it does not use up any space in the ceiling of the building, but a sectional door requires less building height above the door opening.
Designing a new auto shop with our team almost always ends up in a more efficient space. Check out the video below to explore this question in greater detail.
