How is a steel building more cost effective than my other options?
When purchasing a steel building, you are receiving a custom engineered building that is built to last. Steel buildings are structurally sound, durable, and require less maintenance, which decreases long-term costs.
Will a steel building do well in my climate?
Using a variety of panel and insulation types, your building is designed to be efficient in all climates, whether it is in the cold of Alaska or the heat of the Bahamas. There are options for wherever your project is located to create a climate-controlled environment.
What is a Primary Steel structure?
Metal Building Manufacturing Association (MBMA) defines primary steel, or the main frames of a steel building, as an assemblage of rafters and columns that support the secondary framing members and transfer loads directly to the foundation. These are typically made from shop fabricated I-beams and structural members.
What is a Secondary Steel structure?
Metal Building Manufacturing Association (MBMA) defines secondary steel as members that carry loads from the building surface to the main framing. For example—purlins and girts. These are typically made from cold rolled steel and supports the sheeting or exterior finish of the building.
What is Roll Formed Sheeting?
Roll formed sheeting is made from coated sheet steel using rolling mills to shape steel into desired cross sections at room temperature. The sheeting or cladding is typically used on the exterior and sometimes the interior of the building. The end results are different widths, profiles, and colors which can be used for creating any look or finish on your custom project.
What is the difference between hot and cold rolled steel?
Hot rolled steel sections (angles, channels, S-shapes, W-shapes, etc.) are formed by rolling mills while the steel is in a semi-molten state. Cold rolled steel is formed by using press brakes or rolling mills to shape steel into desired cross sections at room temperature.
What will my project cost?
At PEMB-USA, we provide competitive costs. Please connect with your designated point of contact at PEMB-USA to discuss the details and complexity of your project.
Who is responsible for unloading and building when my steel arrives?
The contractor, erector, or owner is responsible for unloading. They are also responsible for providing any equipment required.
Who do I contact about damaged or missing material on my order?
At PEMB-USA we are with you throughout the whole process. If there is a damaged component or missing material, do not hesitate to connect with your designated point of contact so we can immediately address any concerns.
What type of panel should I use?
Building panels are also known as the cladding or skin of the building. Metal panels come in a large selection of colors, textures, and shapes, giving your project a custom look. We work with a variety of metal panel suppliers to find what meets your project needs.
Does my building need insulation?
PEMB-USA has many options for different types of insulation dependent on end use of the building, local building codes and requirements, and the end owner’s preferences.
What types of buildings does PEMB-USA offer?
PEMB-USA designs, engineers, and fabricates custom metal buildings. Projects range from government facilities for military bases, warehouses, riding arenas, and school buildings to small residential buildings, farm buildings, and shops.
