Custom Prefab Steel and Metal Buildings
Although once used primarily for business or home storage solutions, today prefabricated metal building systems are used in a wide range of applications and are some of the most attractive buildings to be seen.
While some companies specialize in smaller buildings (like portable storage sheds), Braemar Building Systems designs custom pre-engineered steel frame buildings of any size.
What Is Your Approximate Building Size?
Although we can design and manufacture any size building you need, the majority of our buildings are larger than the typical small prefabricated storage or garden shed buildings you might find online or at a home improvement store.
The small storage sheds are often delivered as a completely assembled building, or, in several modular sections requiring little or no on-site assembly. (Check our resources links for companies that specialize in small prefab sheds of this type.) These smaller prefab structures are frequently designed with flooring of some type included and can be placed directly onto the ground without requiring a structural foundation for the building.
Custom Building Engineering and Designs
Our specialty is with custom steel frame metal buildings that are engineered to meet particular building performance requirements, your design aesthetics plus conformance with local building codes.
All Braemar buildings are first pre-engineered for those requirements. Then, all of the steel frame components along with the metal wall and roof components are prefabricated at the manufacturing facility. And finally, all of those elements along with any building accessories (doors, windows, vents, gutters, etc ) are delivered to the building site where they are assembled (erected) onto a prepared building foundation.
Depending on the size and complexity, the building may be assembled by the building owner, or, by a contractor hired by the owner. (Braemar does not employ building assembler / contractors but can refer local assembler / contractors to you if you would like for us to.)
Pre-Engineered for Local Building Codes
Where a small prefabricated building may not have any particular code requirements, in most areas larger buildings need to be designed and engineered to comply with all applicable local, and state building codes. Beyond safety, building codes also factor in certain requirements for building strength that are based on the intended use of the building. Local codes will also usually factor in at least some minimum level of tolerance requirements related to local weather conditions. Typical snow loads or wind speeds are examples of two factors where the same basic building size may have different local code requirements for a location in Colorado than a location in Texas, Florida or Alaska.
Although factoring in all of these requirements is a complex process, it's easy for you because we do all of the work. Part of our service is to help you determine the physical needs (usage) you will have for your building. We then use that information along with your all applicable building code requirements to design and engineer your building properly.
Once the building design is completed, all of the data including the building dimensions, rigid frame column types, roof pitch, load requirements, local building code specifications and all other relevant data are input into a sophisticated software program that generates the manufacturing requirements, building plans, costs, erection manual and supporting information for the complete building.
Today, we are able to quickly create finished plans and specifications for your building in only a tiny fraction of the time it used to take. This allows us to be able to quickly be able to provide you with a firm quote on the cost of the building. And once you have approved the building, we can transfer your building's data directly into our manufacturing systems and begin the manufacturing of your building's components.
Important Benefits of Prefab Building Components
Prefabricating all of the structural steel and metal components of the building in the factory eliminates the materials waste common in traditional construction, saving materials cost and also being more environmentally friendly. (Any excess materials waste at the factory is 100% recyclable steel.)
Your building is delivered directly from the factory to your job site. It arrives with all of the prefabricated components neatly organized and marked for easy identification along with a complete and detailed assembly manual.
Braemar's building designs utilize a rigid steel frame and are frequently designed with clear-span interiors. A clear-span building (also referred to as free span buildings) does not require interior support columns. This provides the ultimate in flexibility for how the interior of the building may be used. Clear-span buildings are an excellent choice for any type of building from small storage buildings (flexible storage space) to huge aircraft hangars.
