How Can a 100x100 Steel Building from Arco Help You Go Green?

With Earth Day just around the corner, you may be wondering how to make your business greener. After all, green initiatives help save money and make for easy marketing. If you are planning on opening a new campus or adding onto an existing building, consider a pre-engineered steel building. Steel is one of the most sustainable building materials available, and here at Arco, we make a wide range of steel buildings that fit your business’s needs and industry.

Sustainability During Construction

Simply choosing steel as your building material is already a huge step towards sustainability. Steel offers many advantages over other types of materials like wood. Steel can be recycled without degrading the quality, which means that any steel building is at least partially recycled!

100x100-steel-building-constructionThe pre-engineered building industry is growing rapidly and for a good reason. Choosing a pre-engineered steel building saves your business even more time and money during construction. Since putting up a steel building saves time, it also lessens the carbon footprint that would be used during construction from equipment such as bulldozers. You will also produce less waste during the construction process compared to materials that must be cut on-site.

Here at Arco, our buildings are manufactured at plants all over the US. This gives us freight advantages, and you don’t have to worry about the environmental impact made by importing materials from overseas.

Durability that Lasts

Arco steel buildings use only the highest quality materials, keeping your business sustainable long after the construction process ends. Steel is durable and withstands extreme weather conditions. Whether your area is prone to snow, tornados, floods, or any other type of extreme conditions, we’ve got you covered. While your competitors have to spend time and resources repairing wooden buildings after a storm, you can focus more on the business that happens inside your building. And you don’t have to feel guilty about throwing out materials that got destroyed.

Another advantage of a steel building is the roof. A steel roof keeps your building cooler than a typical shingle roof does. This saves money and energy used to cool the building during the summer.

Custom Features

Here at Arco, we offer many ways to customize your own features to help your building save energy. These include skylights to let the light in and save on electricity or gravity ventilation to improve natural airflow. Windows are notorious for letting in heat or cold, driving up energy bills, but our insulated windows prevent this problem.

The specific features that will work best for your building depend on location and industry. Our steel buildings include:

  • Aircraft hangars
  • Commercial buildings
  • Agricultural buildings
  • auto shops
  • Storage buildings
  • And many more!

Some people may worry that a pre-engineered building looks cheap or ugly. However, Arco buildings hardly look pre-engineered. When you work with us, you can enjoy the price and durability of a pre-engineered steel building combined with the aesthetic of a conventional building. Just take a look through our gallery to see what we mean.

Whether you know exactly what you want or you just have an idea and need more guidance, we will help you throughout the entire process. After all, we are the experts! Our excellent customer service makes us easy to work with, and we will never mislead you on a quote. Many of our customers choose to put up their building themselves, but we can also refer you to a qualified independent crew if you wish.
