Thinking Outside the Tin Box
November 2, 2014
CAN YOU RECOGNIZE A METAL BUILDING FROM THE OUTSIDE? THINK AGAIN.
You can’t judge a book by its cover. Or a building. Not these days.
What looks like brick on the outside could actually be a metal building. What looks like stucco could also be metal. What looks like wood could be metal. What looks like anything but metal could be…you see where we’re going with this: metal.
Metal is no longer easily detectible. Its gotten sneakier visually. In fact, its disappeared. While these metal buildings still deliver cost-effective, durable structures, today’s versions incorporate custom features, efficient insulation, contemporary aesthetics and flexible solutions for a wide array of uses and applications.
The metal building systems market incorporates architects and designers as an integral part of the production process, providing customized products that range from multi-story buildings to clearspan structures. Utilizing speed of completion, labor savings, sustainability and durability as its foundation, the metal building systems industry has added the value of customized designs that can be uniquely tailored to fit a broad array of specifications in the way of size, shape and accessories, while still serving its core markets of agricultural buildings, office buildings, hangars, schools, churches, recreational centers and community centers.
