Earth Friendly Building Options from Future Steel Buildings
Most people aren't, but once you think of it, it makes sense. Future steel buildings each contain a certain percentage of recycled steel, which varies based on our recycled steel supply.
Another step we take to help ensure an eco-friendly building is to recycle any steel scraps that are cast off during the building production process.
When a steel building goes out for delivery the arch pieces nest together creating a very small footprint and allowing for the shipment of multiple buildings on a single truck, reducing our fuel useage and carbon emissions. The only packaging that is really required for a steel building are a couple of small wooden blocks which ensure the arches stay upright and maintain their form.
Once you erect your steel building you might notice something odd when inside. In the summer your steel building will stay cooler than a traditional style building. That's because the metal reflects the heat of the sun unlike a traditional dark shingled roof which absorbs that heat and transfers it to the sweating people inside.
These are just a few of the earth friendly benefits with a Future Steel Building. Call us at 1-800-668-5111 to learn more and see what we can offer you!
