Need Space? You Need the General!
Schools today face a particular challenge with the need for affordable, efficient and flexible facilities. For educational institutions this challenge is greater than ever. Most public and private school systems in the United States are obliged to trim construction costs in reaction to constrained budgets despite the fact that the growing population of school-age children leads to overcrowded classrooms in many instances across the country. Luckily our buildings are designed not only to be efficient but also to meet the cost constraint that the budget demands.
General Steel School Building Designs
Advantages Provided to Schools
Educators call the General because of the customizations available to those who build steel buildings. Our buildings are completely designed-to-suit and easily expandable so your building can be designed to address the needs of your particular school and grow to accommodate increasing class sizes and expansions of extracurricular activities.
Steel buildings offer more cost per square foot savings than most other construction methods available and require low start-up costs, so that you can get the structure you need erected quickly. Additionally, steel buildings represent a growing trend in new construction, especially among budget-minded school officials, because of the potential savings of time and money compared to more traditional construction methods and materials.
Schools find it vitally important to minimize construction time for badly needed additions or entirely new buildings. General Steel school buildings are pre-welded, pre-drilled, and pre-punched at the factory, so they erect quickly and are completed in a fraction of the time it takes to build a conventional wood or stone structure.
Only the highest quality steel and premium components are used to produce General Steel buildings, allowing for straight walls, tight connections, and the exceptional durability you expect from one of America’s most recommended brand of steel buildings.
Whether you need a brand new wing for classroom space, a new athletic complex, or even an entirely new school, General Steel is the low cost solution for your building needs. General Steel’s buildings are made to be flexible, and there’s almost no limit to the configurations and layouts that can be accommodated. General Steel’s buildings can be designed to coordinate or adjoin to existing buildings, or to provide brick, rock, or stucco paneling for aesthetic appeal. A General Steel building is so flexible in design to be easily expanded to fit the growing needs of your student body and faculty for years to come.
