Withstand Extreme Weather with a Steel Building

Living in the Midwest, we at FS Construction Services are no strangers to extreme weather. Boiling hot one minute, downpouring the next, and a feeling that we’re never quite safe from the snow, our four seasons put us, and our clients, through the ringer, year after year. And while there’s no way to control, or even reliably predict it, there are ways to stay prepared for it all – rain, snow, or drought.

Steel Buildings Hold Up During All Types of Weather

Of the many types of structures we get to work with, few are as strong or as durable as a steel building. With an incredible strength-to-weight ratio, a steel building is ideally designed to withstand the ebbs and flows of extreme weather and the many inconveniences and misfortunes that can come with it. And our partners at Butler and Sukup Manufacturing have made names for themselves with their strong, customizable, multi-use steel buildings.

The materials used in a pre-engineered steel building can be rated for your area’s wind, load, and impact needs. Additionally, steel buildings have been proven to hold up better to fire and even earthquakes than other types of buildings. To stay warm, a variety of insulation types and thicknesses are available to make your space comfortable even in the coldest months. Galvanized or coated steel will not only withstand corrosion and rust, but steel isn’t susceptible to rot and pests like wood can be, meaning it’s able to hold up to forces both without and within. Extreme weather with a steel building can be withstood.

Obviously, no structure is perfect, but a steel building will get you about as prepared as you possibly can be for to weather whatever storm or stress may come. If you are interested in a steel building, or if you have any questions at all, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

A Better, Faster Metal Building

Understandably, when it comes to major projects, like building a new structure from the ground up, clients want to know that corners haven’t been cut and concessions haven’t been made. At FS Construction Services, we understand the hesitation in believing in something that just sounds too good to be true. However, thanks to some very smart engineering and good planning, our partners at Butler Manufacturing have really pushed the envelope with their Tier II Classic Building System.

Build the Best with a Butler Metal Building

This metal building system isn’t just fast, but it also offers wide-ranging customizability and flexibility, allowing it to serve every function from warehouse to agricultural storage to commercial space and pretty much any other option in between. These building can be built to almost any size and scope, with a variety of structure, roof, and wall systems, as well as options for skirt walls, below-eave canopies, and adjacent units. Additionally, there is an option for pre-insulated metal panels, increasing the thermal efficiency of your building.

Of course, one of the most unique features of these buildings is just how fast they can go from idea to standing structure. Butler has worked to ensure short lead times, but more than that, all of their structures come with factory-punched roof and wall panels designed to fit together in any number of configurations. This allows for an assembly that’s 30% faster than a traditional new construction.
