Why You Are Seeing More Steel Buildings

Why Steel Buildings Are So Popular

When it comes to steel buildings, there’s several reasons why the building method has become so popular over the last few years. Even though overall construction and labour costs have continue to rise, prefab steel has stood out as an economical response to this trend. Whether you’re looking for a storage unit, a workshop or an airplane hangar, steel buildings are becoming the go-to option to meet all your needs more and more for tons of reasons


Our steel buildings are expertly engineered to give you exactly what you’re looking for. From high quality plans to assistance with permits and other questions and concerns you may have, Olympia steel buildings in particular will guarantee that you get exactly what you’re looking for by the time the job is done.

Design Choices

It’s easy to customize your steel building to meet your needs. Many people shy away from steel buildings based on their more industrial look, but it’s important to remember that there are a plethora of options available to you that can bring your steel building much closer to your aesthetic vision. From siding and trim colour to the shape of your roof,  you’ll have more than enough options to choose from before you get to your final design. You’ll also be able to choose door options, roof accessories, interior wall options and so much more – either in our design process or after the fact as you customize the structure to meet your needs.


Your steel building is affordable in a variety of ways, and it’s one of the things that make it such a popular choice. Not only are the upfront costs an average of 30% less than other building methods, but you save money every step of the way as well. Those savings will extend well into the construction process as you won’t need as much labour to complete it, nor will you spend money on waste removal. Each building is engineered specifically to your project needs, so time and money spent resizing or repurposing raw materials will also be eliminated. The savings will continue on for years to come, as steel structures typically need little to no continual maintenance to stay in top top shape. Look into specific coatings and treatments that can add even more long-lasting durability to your structure.

Quick Construction

Thanks to easy construction, your project will be completed in much less time than when dealing with other types of building materials – a few days or weeks instead of months on end. This means you’ll be able to maximize your return on investment much sooner than when building with wood or brick, for example. A commercial unit built with prefab steel can be rented out much sooner than one constructed with wood without rushing or compromising quality to do so.

Environmentally Friendly

As the world’s most recycled materials, steel as a building method is the probably one of the most conscious choices you can make. By choosing steel, you’re saving precious natural resources like wood – which will in turn save trees and forests typically used for building purposes. The vast majority of the steel currently used for industrial purposes will return to the same types of uses once it’s taken down or discarded. In a matter of months, this same material will run through the manufacturing cycle and be used later in another prefab steel building.

Steel buildings are also naturally energy efficient, as their interiors do a great job at maintaining reasonable temperatures – helped along also by good insulation and temperature control devices like furnaces and air conditioners.
