This project consisted of three pre-engineered, manufactured metal building systems for a plant nursery in Miami, Florida. Why does this “concept for building” give excellent value? Well with this building concept you get fast track construction, fast designs unsupported clear spans (no intermediate columns) a long useful life standing seam metal roofs, more than one floor level, all in a fast track building package.
You don’t like the metal siding look. No problem, we’ll give you a manufactured metal building using a steel building frame, standing seam metal roof, normal every day exterior walls in block and stucco, brick or insulated metal panels. Using these materials for your new, church, school, refrigerated warehouse, or other facility provides the customer with a building that is structurally sound and pleasing to view, yet provides a fast track design and fast construction method.
We provide export services from the Port of Miami, in Miami Florida, USA. No matter where you live we will design a building to meet or exceed your local building regulations, we will do it fast and cost effectively. This concept for building saves the customer money by reduced start to finish construction time. Being ourselves business men and women we understand the principle; “time is money.”
Give us a call we will make sure that at the end of the project you will be glad you did.
Our contact information can be found at the top of the page or simply click on the contact us tab and send us an email. We will respond to your inquiry within twenty-four hours.
This type of building is a modern-day method that provides the client with cutting edge building technology in commercial building construction. In earlier times this kind of building was built using on-site wood post and beam construction like this building built in the 1920s.
There are several things to consider when deciding on a building. Choosing the right materials, the right sizes and the right dimensions are no small task, it’s also very important to choose the right manufacturer. Some of things you will need to consider include safety, cost efficiency, time and durability. You will want to choose a reputable builder and quality materials. By using this “concept for building” you will get a modern, safe, economical and quick solution for your building needs.
These days building with steel is gaining popularity in many areas. Prefab steel structures are suitable for a number of purposes such as airplane hangars, storage areas, garages, workshops and even churches. They also offer one of the best, safest, and most durable solutions for agricultural buildings and horse riding arenas.
Not only are they more safe and comfortable for the animals and the people working with them, prefab metal structures also enable owners to cut operating costs, and optimize space. A traditional wooden barn is much more susceptible to fire and other natural disaster than a steel building. Not only is a steel barn built with an I-beam more durable than a light gauge pole barn, the nature of the structure also provides more usable space.
Agricultural steel buildings can be designed to make optimal use of natural lighting, which saves a lot of money in the long run, and offers an environmentally friendly solution. Using insulation packages the structures can efficiently be kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Steel riding arenas can be constructed with or without walls, the latter offering great ventilation, while simultaneously keeping rain out. Fully insulated, enclosed riding arenas make for ideal riding temperatures even in the winter time.

Throughout the history of humankind, different types of buildings have been constructed depending on various factors such as the building materials available, the specific uses of the buildings, and the level of expertise of the builders. And, buildings have evolved from one decade to the other to reflect the needs of the society. Notably, steel buildings have earned the marvel of many during these modern times. “Tension Fabric Buildings” are another kind of steel building. The difference is that instead of metal cladding they are clad in a long-lasting, fire-proof PVC fabric.
Generally, steel buildings refer to metal structures in which the members are made of steel in order to offer internal support as well as exterior cladding. The steel components of these buildings are generally joined by welding, riveting or bolting, and this reinforces their strength. The construction of steel buildings is usually accomplished through industrial processes. In modern construction, steel buildings are best known for the diversity of their shapes as well as their architectural expressiveness that make them more reliable than other types of structures. During this century, steel buildings have evolved into various specific types according to their use, which can be storage, places of work, living accommodation, and others.
Steel buildings offer several advantages. To begin with, due to the high strength of steel, the strength of these buildings is unmatched compared to structures constructed using other building materials. This is particularly essential when one desires to have a building with a strong foundation for use with heavy machinery. Next, steel buildings save time and money as compared to using conventional building systems. The inherent strength of steel implies that less structural members are required, and this translates to savings in construction, maintenance, and replacement costs.
Other benefits of steel structures include increased sanitary conditions, environment conservation, and flexibility in case of alteration for different uses. On the hand, the main disadvantage of steel buildings is their susceptibility to corrosion. However, this can be surmounted easily through applying some protective measures, for example, applying special coatings and paint.

The overdue bill for water systems is reaching alarming size, with economic consequences that will weigh on U.S. businesses for years to come.
An economic analysis on unmet public water and wastewater system needs commissioned by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) paints a grim future for the U.S. economy. The costs associated with unreliable delivery and inadequate treatment, the analysis shows, will combine to cut the nation’s gross domestic product by as much as $416 billion over the next decade if current spending levels remain unchanged.
Failure to Act: The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Water and Wastewater Treatment Infrastructure is the second of four ASCE-commissioned assessments of infrastructure spending.
The analysis examines the economic consequences of aging drinking water, wastewater and wet weather management systems on businesses and households based on existing capital spending trends. Lacking any new investment in this infrastructure, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 estimate of a $55 billion shortfall in maintenance and upgrade needs could balloon to $84 billion by 2020, and nearly double to $144 billion by 2040.
While the effects of this funding gap will vary, the report projects that businesses will face the added cost of dealing with water shortages, increased rates, conservation, and outlays for either self-reliance or relocation to areas with more reliable infrastructure. An increase in water-borne illnesses due to unreliable delivery and treatment services will likewise burden households with increased medical costs, leaving less money for discretionary spending.
Productivity will also suffer, according to the report, with a potential loss of nearly 700,000 jobs across all sectors of the economy by 2020. Twice as many jobs may be at risk by 2040.
The report notes that while current sustainable practices such as conservation, more efficient water use, and new treatment technologies could ease water demand, any gains will likely be offset by factors such as population growth in areas of the country where resources are less abundant.
