Green Reasons to Build With Pre-engineered Metal Buildings

Green reasons to build with pre-engineered steel buildings and metal buildings systems for your next building construction project:
  • Steel is the most recycled material on the planet
  • Steel is sustainable
  • Steel is a cost-effective, durable option for building construction
  • Steel buildings are a part of all major Green buildings ratings programs and standards programs,  including the National Green Building Standard (ICC-700) for residential buildings, ASHRAE Standard 189.1 for commercial construction, and the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program.
  • Using pre-engineered metal building construction reduces the amount of construction waste at the job site. Steel construction waste is recyclable into other steel buildings construction
  • Reflective metal roofs on pre-engineered steel buildings keep the inside of metal buildings coolr and can save up to 40% in energy. 
  • Because they do not absorb heat as do other roofing materials, reflective metal roofs can also lower urban air temperatures, reducing urban smog.
