Designed for a More Efficient Operation

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 industrial builsing, 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.

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 an attractive and highly functioning industrial space.

Save Up to 50% Compared to Traditional Construction

Steel is renowned for its strength, but one of the primary benefits of purchasing a steel building for your industrial space is its versatility. Our building kits are designed according to use, which means we are able to modify floor layouts as well as include customization options that reflect precisely how your building will be used.

Another major advantage in selecting steel for your industrial building is the quick and easy construction. Steel building kits come ready to be erected with simple, DIY-friendly bolt-together construction. This not only allows you to save up to 50% on time and material costs over traditional building materials like wood and stone, it also allows you to get your business up and running as soon as possible.
