Industrial Buildings

Metal Crane Buildings

Braemar Building Systems has the experience and knowledge to design and fabricate industrial steel buildings with integrated overhead crane systems to assist with material handling and moving heavy loads.

Our ClearSpan design capabilities allow for unobstructed spaces so manufacturing, material handling, and assembly spaces can all be strategically arranged to optimize workflow patterns and business operation needs. Our industrial steel crane buildings are assembled with a heavy-duty primary framing system that can adequately support extremely heavy overhead crane systems as well as mezzanines and multi-floor designs.

Designing a Crane System

When it comes to metal buildings with overhead cranes, we first consider your overhead crane specifications, the span of the crane, and the space or distance your crane needs to cover within the building. We will account for the combined weight of the crane system and the crane’s maximum load capacity before custom engineering your steel building. In some cases, we can also reduce or eliminate the need for independent crane columns, which will save you space and money.

Whether you need a steel production plant utilizing the heaviest crane or a warehouse that needs a multi-crane system, Braemar Building Systems can design and deliver an extremely strong and durable industrial steel crane building.

Crane Types

Benefits of Steel Crane Buildings

Pre-engineered metal buildings offer the best value and smartest solutions for all your industrial steel crane buildings.

  • Cost Savings—Our prefab metal buildings offer numerous short- and long-term economic advantages. They also reduce loss and damage due to environmental exposure and hazards. Metal buildings provide increased longevity and are virtually trouble and maintenance-free.
  • Design Flexibility and Adaptability—Our industrial metal crane buildings offer superior architectural and design flexibility to accommodate all your building needs and requirements. We offer numerous customizable design options that offer ease of expansion when more space is required or reconfiguring is necessary to accommodate requirement changes and needs. 
  • Long-life and Low Maintenance—Steel offers superior strength and durability. Our steel crane buildings withstand harsh environments and weather conditions while maintaining their structural integrity for the safety and protection of your congregation. Their low maintenance design translates to cost savings over the long life of your building.
  • Speed of Construction—Our pre-engineered metal building kits are quick and easy to assemble. Building components are engineered for your project using our advanced technology and are ready to be installed when they arrive at the construction site. This increases the project’s speed to market and lowers the in-place cost.
  • Eco-Friendly, Highly Sustainable Option—Compared to traditional building materials, steel is a highly sustainable option. Also, our buildings are adaptable to energy-efficient insulation systems that allow you to reduce energy costs and provide a safe air environment to protect all your valuable assets.
  • Attractive Appearance. We pride ourselves in designing metal buildings that are both attractive and economical. Our building specialists have a wealth of ideas and suggestions to ensure you get a building that meets both your aesthetic and functional needs at an affordable price.

Framing System Selection

The layout and design of a manufacturing space should help production, not hinder it. Braemar Building Systems has a full range of framing options.

  • Clearspan - A clearspan metal building is made of a steel frame that lacks vertical support columns, resulting in a barrier-free interior.
  • Multispan - Multispan metal buildings are used for applications that require vast amounts of space but permit interior columns, such as warehouses and distribution centers. The use of columns to support the roofing system enables these structures to exceed the width of clearspan buildings.  
  • Extended Bay - Our extended bay system is custom-engineered to allow for versatility in architectural design while accommodating structures needing longer areas of floor space. Extended bay designs decrease the number of interior columns. This streamlines the design process and reduces costs.  
  • Lean-To - A lean-to-metal building is a clearspan structure joined to an existing one. It features a single-sloped roof with a height and pitch that suits the adjoining building.

Design Features

Although usability is the primary purpose of a manufacturing facility, appearance shouldn’t be overlooked entirely. Well-appointed metal buildings can attract talented workers and strengthen client relationships. A wide range of design features are available. 

  • Eaves
  • Downspouts
  • Decorative Roofing Panels
  • Windows
  • Decorative Wall Panels
  • Metal Roofing Panels
