5 reasons to use a prefabricated building

29 August 2019

Efficiency, Cost, Time, Durability, Performance. These are essential criteria to considerate when you’re planning a commercial or institutional project. Among all the possible options, a prefabricated building meets all these criteria and has even more advantages.

1. One Building, One Delivery : That’s Efficiency!

When you’re choosing a Steelway prefabricated building, all your building’s components are shipped at the same time. You get the whole building envelope in one delivery. It includes the primary structure and the secondary structure, the insulation, and the wall and roof claddings. All panels are precut in length and it includes all starter and finishing trims, and door and window mouldings.

2 and 3. Save Time and Money

A prefabricated building means no more delay associated to the delivery and no skilled workers to manage. It take less time to install and only one construction trade is required to fully assemble the building envelope. By saving time, you’re also saving money. There is more. You also save money on the building itself. Prefabricated buildings are usually lighter than traditional buildings. For this type of building you pay by the pound, that’s why they are cheaper.

4. Durability and Strength

Prefabricated buildings offer the same resistance to snow and wind as traditional buildings. They also respect Quebec’s construction standards. Furthermore, different options are available, such as standing seam roof systems (no visible screws) which last up to 70 years, and LEED certified white roof claddings.
