Designed Specifically for Your Congregation

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 will be using your church facility, how it will fit on your property, and your ideas for interior and exterior design, among other factors. We then research the location of the building to ensure that it’s 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 beautiful church.

Clear Span and Unmatched Durability

Steel is the world’s premier building material because of its strength and durability. Steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any construction material, which means steel components add strength without adding stress to a building’s frame. This strength gives you and our team more flexibilty when it comes to designing a church facility. Our clear span structures allow us to easily modify layouts to most accurately reflect the needs of your congregation.

Another primary benefit of steel buildings over traditional building materials is its energy efficiency. This is especially true for the large buildings usually required for church facilities. As an eco-friendly material, steel cuts energy costs, saving you a substantial amount of money over time.

Secondly, steel construction allows for facility expansion more easily than other construction methods.
