Top Reasons to Choose a Steel Building

A steel building offers several noteworthy advantages compared to traditional wood or concrete buildings, whether you're looking to set up or expand commercial premises or extend a residential.

Here are just some of the reasons a steel building makes an excellent choice.

Ease of use

Most steel building kits are pre-engineered and easy enough to put together that many customers choose to do it themselves. All the pieces of an Atlantic Steel building line up with precision and are joined using nuts and bolts throughout, meaning your new building will come together in no time at all. However, some other suppliers use self-tapping screws to fasten them together and it is not so straightforward to put these ones up.

Strength

Each of our steel buildings meets or exceeds all British and EU standards relating to buildings in the UK, being sufficiently strong to withstand all but the most extreme of weather conditions.

Durability

Steel buildings made from pre-fabricated parts that have been treated against pests, fireproofed and made weather resistant, meaning that the finished building requires little in the way of maintenance. The pieces themselves are built to last, being made from quality steel and designed so that, once erected, they benefit from even greater strength.

Your building, your design

Virtually any steel building can be customised to meet your precise requirements. That is one of the great benefits of erecting a building from kit form. Not only that, but if you need to expand your building at a later date, it is simplicity itself to get another steel building kit to suit.

Cost-effective

All of which leads to substantial savings in both the short- and long-term. The initial outlay is less than that of a concrete or wood building, in terms of materials and workforce combined. Moreover, future costs are reduced thanks to the ease of expanding your steel building, the lack of maintenance required, and how strong and sturdy the whole building is.
