Why Are Industrial Steel Buildings the Best Choice for Manufacturing?
The manufacturing sector makes up approximately 12% of the U.S. total GDP. Manufacturing contributes to the U.S. economy by providing jobs, consumer products, heavy machinery, and more. As such a vital asset of the worldwide economy, American manufacturers need to build reliable, long-lasting buildings today to meet the increasing demand of the expanding market.
All manufacturing operations have their own set of requirements when it comes to building features. For some, cooling and climate control is a major concern. For others, they need a building that is easily expandable and portable.
No matter the requirements, prefab steel manufacturing plants can be designed accordingly. Steel buildings are affordable, customizable, and quick and easy to install. They are also capable of being engineered in custom sizes and can be expanded upon later.
Custom Engineering for Bridge Crane Support
One of the key advantages of prefabricated steel buildings for manufacturing is their ability to be custom engineered to support overhead or bridge cranes.
Unlike traditional buildings, steel structures offer the flexibility to accommodate cranes, making them an ideal solution for manufacturing operations. While not all steel buildings come pre-designed to accommodate cranes, they can be easily modified during the design and construction phases to meet the specific needs of crane installations. This customization option allows manufacturers to optimize their workspace and enhance operational efficiency for weight-bearing projects.
When engineering a steel building to support overhead or bridge cranes, several structural considerations come into play. These include:
- Load-Bearing Capacity – The structural design of the building must take into account the weight and dynamic loads imposed by the cranes. The building’s columns, beams, and foundation are reinforced to withstand the added stress and ensure safe crane operation.
- Clear Span and Height – A steel building’s clear span design is designed to accommodate the crane’s horizontal movement. Tall vertical height clearance is also considered to allow for safe lifting and movement of materials.
- Bracing and Reinforcements – Additional bracing and reinforcements can be incorporated into the building’s structure to enhance stability and mitigate any potential sway or deflection caused by crane operations.
The versatility, reliability, and efficiency offered by pre-engineered steel buildings make them an ideal choice for manufacturers who are seeking to optimize their operations with efficient lifting capabilities.
Benefits of a Prefab Steel Manufacturing Facility
There are many advantages of using steel for a manufacturing building or industrial factory, such as:
Incredible Durability and Strength
The durability of steel buildings is unmatched. Made with reinforced steel, I-beam support systems provide robust framing that can accommodate all types of manufacturing demands without the obstruction of interior support columns. Steel is strong enough to support heavy equipment such as hefty bridge cranes and rails for slaughterhouses.
Our manufacturing facilities can be engineered to withstand severe weather conditions such as excess wind, rain, and snow.
Long Life Spans With Little to No Maintenance
It is important for manufacturing plants to invest in quality, performance, and reliability. Steel buildings meet each of these requirements with their long life span and minimal maintenance needs. Steel is resistant to pests, fire, and corrosion, ensuring a long lifespan for the structure. The durable nature of steel also reduces the likelihood of structural repairs, saving time and money in the long run.
Energy Efficiency and Sustainability
Steel buildings can be designed to optimize energy efficiency. With proper insulation and ventilation systems, steel manufacturing buildings can minimize energy consumption for heating, cooling, and lighting. This not only reduces operational costs but also contributes to a greener and more sustainable factory.
Additionally, steel is an eco-friendly material. It is highly recyclable, meaning that steel factories can be dismantled and the materials reused or recycled at the end of their lifespan. Additionally, using steel reduces waste during the construction process, resulting in a smaller environmental impact.
A Cost-Effective Solution
Metal manufacturing buildings often prove to be a cost-effective solution. Steel is relatively affordable compared to other building materials, and its strength allows for large open spaces without the need for extensive support columns or walls. This maximizes usable floor space, reducing construction costs and providing flexibility for future expansions or modifications. And, due to how low maintenance the structures are, you can spend less money on repairs.
Popular Industries for Our Prefab Manufacturing Buildings
Prefab steel buildings are an excellent choice for many industries and manufacturing processes. Examples include:
- Fertilizer processing
- Farm equipment
- Food processing
- Heavy machinery
- Military and defense
Flexible, functional, and versatile, an industrial steel building can get the job done. A steel building can also be designed to offer extra space for offices, breakrooms, restrooms, walkways, storage areas, and loading docks. You can even add a lean-to to cover loading docks and entryways from rain or snow.
Special Features Included With Our Industrial Steel Manufacturing Buildings
There are a few features that make our steel manufacturing facilities stand out, for example:
