Custom Designing Your Medical Facility

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 your medical building will operate, 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 medical 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 safe, efficient medical facility.

Reliable and Versatile

Steel is the world’s premier building material because of its strength and durability. General Steel buildings are produced using 100-percent, American-made steel that adheres to the industry’s most stringent technical specifications. When your medical building is home to potentially thousands of patients and staff, safety should be at the forefront of any conversation.

Another advantage of constructing a steel building is the clear span framing of our steel building kits. General Steel can accommodate almost any specialized layout required for your facility. Our medical building kits are free of interior columns, allowing maximum space for needed facilities.
