What are the Cost Differences Between Regular Lumber and Prefab Steel Buildings?
It’s no secret that constructing a new building – whether it’s a home or a commercial building – can be a headache and even the best-laid plans can go awry. Unforeseen delays and unexpected issues can quickly derail a project timeline, that’s where prefab steel buildings step in. Prefabricated steel buildings offer an alternative solution without compromising design or custom capabilities.
Efficiency is baked into every step of the creation process for prefabricated steel construction, beginning with the design phase. In a traditional build process, an architect works with an engineer and a general contractor to bring the structure to life.
At EcoSteel, we create a 3D model of the commercial or residential prefab building system so we can design and fabricate a kit of parts that can easily be assembled at the job site. Using building information management and cutting edge engineering and construction technology, we can reduce expensive mistakes along the construction line. Our process can eliminate the need for subcontractors, meaning fewer people to coordinate with and fewer mishaps that could prolong construction. And, because we create the prefabricated steel materials in a factory, weather-related delays are of no concern or expense to the project.
Overall, prefabricated steel buildings have a much shorter build time and which can lead to money-saving opportunities throughout the construction process. Once the home or commercial space is built, prefab buildings also out-shine their stick-built cousins in terms of energy-saving costs. Prefabricated steel buildings are extremely energy efficient with air-tight construction and premium insulation. These measures save the consumer tens of thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the building.
