2017 might be in full swing, but there is still plenty of time to create and execute a comprehensive business plan that works best for you. Whether it’s a new small business or adding to an existing project, a lot goes into making these plans a success. There are plenty of factors that you’ll have to consider in your plan, especially if your plan includes a space for a head office, retail location, storage or a manufacturing. No matter what your end goal is as far as use goes, steel buildings are your best bet for meeting all of your business plan goals.
When it comes to starting a new business, nothing is more important than spending your money as wisely as you can in the very beginning. Going with a prefab steel building is something that will save you around 30% in upfront costs when compared to the cost of raw materials to build a structure of the same size. Not only will you save on these upfront costs, but your construction costs will be lower in addition to the costs to heat and cool your structure thanks to its natural insulation. With the help of energy efficient appliances, you can save hundreds or even thousands over the course of a year to keep your head office, store or storage unit at a reasonable temperature.
Often when we think of steel structures, we envision a very specific type of building that looks much more industrial than anything else. Depending on what your business is, this aesthetic might not be the right look for your space, but it’s important to understand just how flexible steel buildings really are. From custom roofing and paint options and custom siding and facing, there’s plenty of ways that your steel building can look exactly the way you need it to look so you can have a structure that is the best reflection of your branding and the kind of space you need.
Prefab steel has the advantage of being a building material that can come together much quicker than building with other materials! A project that might have taken weeks or even months with other construction materials like brick or wood, can be completed in just a matter of days. This is excellent for any business for a few reasons. Not only does this mean that you’ll be able to use your structure much sooner and get a return on your investment faster, but you’ll also save money on labour since you’ll only need general labour for a much shorter period of time compared to other building methods.
Steel buildings are extremely low maintenance, and can last for much longer periods of time without needing regular repairs or fixes. This is an important feature because, especially in the first year or two of a business, it’s important to keep costs low so you can get some real return on your investment. Unlike other structure types, you won’t have to constantly be fixing your structure – although annual inspections are highly recommended.
