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 institutional building, 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 an impressive facility.
A key advantage in choosing a steel building over 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 building up and running. The more efficient timeline of steel construction over traditional materials will also save up to 50% on time and material costs.
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 more flexibility when it comes to designing a building that will reflect the needs of your organization.
Institutional buildings are often public buildings, including libraries, athletic facilities, schools, or medical buildings.
A prefabricated building provides the best value due to its design versatility, strength, durability, and efficient construction. A manufacturing facility requires a high degree of customization, and a preengineered building kit from General Steel provides the functional and aesthetic components that make your facility your own.
The cost of an institutional building depends on a few factors; first, the size of the building package. Larger structures cost more but are cheaper when considering cost per square foot. Second, building prices are determined by design, including the custom features that you select for your institutional building. Lastly, the price of steel at any time can fluctuate based on market performance. These factors combine to set your final price.
