More and more nonresidential construction projects are choosing pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB), and government agencies are at the top of the list. As some of the most cost-effective and energy-efficient buildings to construct, a government PEMB allows agencies to grow and expand operations faster than in the past.
From office spaces to housing to warehouse and training facilities, the applications for pre-engineered metal buildings are soaring.
The Growing Use of Government PEMB Applications
Just like a business, many government agencies continue to expand their operations and reach. Some of the goals might be spending budget dollars as efficiently as possible while also expanding to meet deadlines put in place by policymakers.
When an agency is stretched too thin, it can’t operate as it was intended. Some of the benefits of PEMBs are that they are versatile, allow for the control of costs, and are projects that can be started and completed much quicker than other forms of construction.
Faster Construction and Less Interruption
PEMBs for your government projects will be completed much faster compared to traditional construction. All major components and parts are manufactured and assembled offsite. By the time those materials are delivered to your construction site, they are ready to be quickly put together on your pre-prepared slab.
These factors are vital because they will result in lower costs and business interruptions. You will pay less for pre-construction work because more is done off-site and there is less waste of materials. Since the time on-site is minimal, your business interruption is minimized as well.
Attractive, Consistent, & Customizable
It’s a common misconception that a PEMB is a cookie-cutter solution. While there is a library of shovel-ready starter drawings, you can customize any PEMB to exactly suit your needs. Once you have a solution that works for your agency, you can duplicate it over and over so that you have consistency for future expansion and growth.
Whether you are using a PEMB for aircraft storage, training, barracks, office space, or some other purpose, you can create buildings that have a uniform and attractive appearance on the exterior. On the interior, these structures can give you the form and function that your agency requires to meet its goals.
Sustainable Construction & Minimal Maintenance
Steel is one of the most sustainable and cost-effective building materials. A majority of steel products already contain large portions of recycled material, and these are items that will be recycled again at the end of their lifecycle. Since there is also less waste with this type of construction due to the methods used, a PEMB is also considered environmentally-friendly.
Government bodies need to keep a close eye on operating budgets, and a PEMB has comparatively low overhead maintenance. Steel is corrosion and rust resistant. These are also structures that, when built correctly, can go decades without any structural maintenance. Because they are strong, they can withstand harsh elements well.
