If a project can be completed faster and cheaper then it’s well worth looking into, right? This is the basic premise behind pre-engineered metal buildings which are making their mark on the building industry worldwide.
What are the key benefits of pre-engineered metal structures? How do they compare to traditional building techniques?
Key benefits of pre-engineered metal buildings
As a general rule, when you master the creation of a single component then there is less margin for error, and you can continue to improve on that product.
In much the same way, the creation of pre-designed steel segments to a set standard coupled with a consistent methodology of assembly results in a constant product. This rinse and repeat system equals considerable time savings, not unlike the precise systems used in successful businesses like McDonalds where everyone knows their place and there are no surprises. Manufacturing and assembly processes operate on an assembly line-like method, fast and consistent.
Can you imagine how much money Ikea saves on the cost of staff assembling their products in a year? The same concept can be applied to pre-engineered structures.
The bulk of the time and effort spent in creating these frameworks resides in the initial design and planning stages. Therefore, the cost of a dedicated team required to configure, assemble, and erect on site is vastly reduced.
You can be forgiven for thinking that these pre-designed structures are simply a dull, cookie-cutter solution to building and construction. Far from it.
Many companies make use of modular designs which grant the client a host of options which fit together like Lego, all manufactured using great design, simple processes, and lighter products.
Certainly, pre-engineered metal buildings are paving the way for the fast and efficient erection of quality structures throughout the globe. Can you make use of these?
