If you are considering building a new industrial facility, warehouse, or distribution center, you may want to consider pre engineered metal buildings (PEMB) as one of your options.
As contractors with a core specialty in industrial projects, Shockey’s project managers can quickly work through your facility program to determine if a PEMB might be a good fit with your business needs.
In doing so, they’ll compare PEMB to tilt-wall, precast concrete, and structural steel – all systems with which Shockey has a wealth of experience.
Some advantages of PEMBs include:
- Quick design, fabrication, and construction times
- Excellent durability
- Large column-free enclosures
- Affordable costs
- Minimal construction waste
- High-performance thermal properties
- Affordable operating costs
And that’s not all. Did you know that a metal building can qualify for project LEED points? Shockey’s metal building partner, Nucor®, is the largest steel recycler in North America. The average amount of recycled steel used in Nucor® products is over 80%.
PEMBs can be simple utilitarian structures, or they can integrate a more aesthetic appeal, especially when clad with materials such as masonry, glass, or concrete.
They can even be used in conjunction with a variety of structural materials to provide a hard-shell wainscoting in areas that might be damaged by equipment or trucks.
To discuss whether a PEMB might be right for your next project, please give Jennifer Macks a call at 540-723-4128.
