Our Warehouse Building Design Process

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 warehouse, 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 warehouse 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 professional warehouse.

Clear Span Warehouse Buildings

Steel building kits are the ideal building solutions for warehouses of all sizes. Perhaps the biggest advantage of a steel warehouse facility is its versatility. We understand that warehousing operations must be as efficient as possible, which is why we work closely with you to ensure the building layout accurately reflects your warehouse processes. And with customization options including doors, windows, and color schemes, your warehouse will be a perfect fit for your business.

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

What businesses can I start with a warehouse?

Warehouse kits are versatile buildings that are equipped to support business of many kinds. We’ve worked with e-commerce companies, server farms, consignment stores, indoor dog parks, fitness centers, microbreweries, and more.

Why is a prefabricated building the best choice for a warehouse?

A prefabricated building provides the best value due to its design versatility, strength, durability, and efficient construction. A warehouse requires a high degree of customization, and a preengineered building kit from General Steel provides the functional and aesthetic components that make your warehouse your own.

What is the difference between a warehouse and a distribution center?

The primary difference is distribution centers offer fulfillment services and warehouses offer storage space. Both can be profitable business investments.
