Modern Prefab Retail – Houston, TX
Cafe ZunZun in Houston, TX is the first of its kind. A complete design collaboration with our coffee roasting clients to bring one of the most sustainable buildings and company practices H-Town has ever seen.
Rooted in sustainable agriculture practices, climate stability, human rights, and enriching livelihoods, Cafe ZunZun is not just selling cups of coffee, they are here to make a difference.
The goal of this project was to create a structure that would not only house the roasting and brewing operation of this business but create energy efficiency. For these reasons, they turned to EcoSteel and our prefabricated metal building systems to help get the job done.
This fire-rated insulated steel building system encompasses commercial grade architectural components to ensure decades of durable use. Insulated steel roof and wall panels provide superior insulation values to keep interiors cool while roasting coffee in extreme heat during the Summer months-vital to decreasing the energy consumption and creating a greener and more sustainable society.
Sustainability has been a trending topic for the past few years but has been a hallmark of the steel construction industry for decades. Steel is the only material used in construction today that can be 100% recycled and reused, you can’t say that about anything else!
Steel promotes sustainable construction in other ways you might not think of. Due to the tight tolerances achieved in prefabrication, steel buildings offer the following benefits:
- Less waste onsite
- Safer construction
- Less community disruption
- Smaller Jobsite footprint
- Less pollution from heavy machinery
Additionally, EcoSteel’s prefab metal buildings are ideal for solar and wind power. An option available to all our residential, commercial or industrial clients allowing for a NetZero building (NZB) operation. This type of building application greatly helps to reduce overall costs and resource conservation by producing its own energy resources.

Wellington Cellars Story:
East Hampton, NY
With strict Architectural Guidelines on the main road into the famous beachfront enclave known as The Hamptons, the developer was unable to build with an exterior metal wall finish in order to remain within a historical beach cottage theme. With an owner’s mandate to eliminate lumber products for healthy indoor air quality and fire safety, this EcoSteel Prefab Commercial Building utilized a reclaimed wood Facade System to conceal the insulated steel panels.
Introducing Prefabricated Athletic/ Physical Therapy Solutions;
Integrated Exercise Therapy (IET), is the premier exercise and wellness facility in the Hamptons. Their core philosophy is based on a quote from world renowned physical therapist Gray Cook — “First move well, then move often”. Even Aristotle in the 4th Century BC said that “Life is Movement.” At IET, they are dedicated to helping you move, very well. Since most people are not trained in Physiology or Kinesiology, they don’t have a good understanding of how to move properly. IET’s goal is to help you learn what your body needs and to provide you with the tools to move better throughout your entire life.
This Holistic Wellness Building approach will maintain superior thermal insulation over traditional methods while covering up the metal finish to meet code requirements.The prefab building is designed for Hurricane Wind Loading and extreme temperature changes while maintaining a safe and stable interior environment.
This new Bay Area custom all steel home has many exciting features, including walls of glass with commanding views. With a roof deck, sliding sun shades and a living area of just over 3,000SF, this stunning EcoSteel custom steel building in California (designed by Paolo Volpis) is now under construction. The owner specified a custom dark grey/ metallic finish for the exterior wall panels. The doors and windows will be Fleetwood Glass, along with the roof top hand rails.
Sitting near a fault line, the custom steel home is engineered for extreme seismic forces. The design incorporates superior energy efficient roof and wall panels that will exceed Title 24 Code requirements.
