Designed According to the Needs of Your Business

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 car wash, 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 business to ensure that your building is equipped to withstand the wind and snow loads of your area as well as any insulation requirements.

Once we get an idea of what building kit best suits your project, we work with you to add customization options, including a wide variety of doors, windows, and exterior color schemes. The ease of steel construction allows us to modify layouts and add further customizations without breaking your budget. From design to construction, we provide the materials and expertise to transform a building kit into a car wash business.

Design Flexibility and Efficient Spaces

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 a car wash 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.

Another key advantage in choosing a steel building over more traditional building materials is the speed of construction. When you receive your building kit from General Steel, it is ready to be erected. With simple bolt-together construction, you can quickly get your car wash business up and running. The more efficient timeline of steel construction over traditional materials will also save up to 50% on time and material costs.
