Customized Buildings for 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 will be using your manufacturing 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 manufacturing 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 efficient, highly functioning manufacturing facility.

Clear Span and Versatile Spaces

Steel building kits are the ideal building solutions for manufacturing facilities of all sizes. Perhaps the biggest advantage of a steel manufacturing facility is its versatility. We understand that manufacturing operations must be as efficient as possible, which is why we work closely with you to ensure the building layout accurately reflects your manufacturing processes.

One of the primary benefits of a steel building for a manufacturing facility is the column-free space that comes with our clear span buildings. With up to 300 feet of uninterrupted space, you can maximize inventory space and process efficiency without losing the strength and durability to protect your assets.
