Why You Should Choose Steel for Your Business


As your business begins to grow, you may begin to feel the walls of your, once perfectly sized, space closing in on you and your company’s potential. It’s inevitable for any business fortunate enough to thrive, and it’s a fantastic problem to have. Choosing the right way to expand can be difficult, and making the wrong choice can cause a lot of unnecessary spending and hassle. Luckily, there is a universal solution for businesses of every type and size; prefabricated steel buildings. Businesses across Canada are making the smart choice and opting for steel. From landscaping companies to churches, auto shops, gyms and corporate offices, steel offers the flexibility and affordability to accommodate the needs of any business, large or small. Here are a few reasons why steel is the right choice for you.

If you are currently renting office space, like many small businesses are, you’re probably sick of making payments on another person’s investment. Or maybe you own your own building, but you’re limited by its small size and need to move into something larger. Either way, steel is the answer you’re looking for. When you own a steel building, you’re investing in the future of your company. Not only will these permanent structures appreciate your property value, they’re easier to expand and modify than traditional wood or concrete buildings, so your space can grow with the business, and you won’t ever have to move again. It’s worth noting that these buildings are fully customized to your specifications so you won’t ever have to settle for a less-than-perfect existing building. Prefabricated steel structures put you in the driver seat, allowing you to choose from modifications like roll-up doors, insulation, lighting, window size and placement, skylights, gutters and sectional doors.

The DIY nature of assembling prefabricated steel buildings allows for quick, cost-effective business expansion for small businesses and tight budgets. All of the heavy lifting is completed by our staff of highly experienced building designers. They will design your building to meet your needs and specifications, and every kit comes complete with their instructions on how to perfectly fit all of the components together. Your building will require no cutting or modifications to erect, and will go up quicker than any woof or concrete construction project, saving you valuable time to get your business up and running sooner rather than later.

Steel is among the most durable, long-lasting and sustainable materials available for building construction. It withstands weather conditions and wear and tear better than concrete and wood framed buildings can. The non-combustible nature of the material reduces both risk and costs to insure it. Steel also happens to be the most low-maintenance building materials available, so keeping your building like-new will be as easy as a few annual checks. On top of all this, you’re protected by Olympia’s comprehensive warranties, so you won’t ever have to worry again.
