Benefits of Metal Buildings

Metal building systems have proven time and again to be the most economical use of steel for low-rise, non-residential construction. Trust us. We’ve been doing this since 1966.

Custom Builds

Most of what we build is custom, never to be reproduced. Forget about the limitations of stock lengths, widths, or bay spacings. There are optimal designs that help minimize costs while still delivering the design performance required, but some things just can’t be put into those boxes. Solving the unique problems that come along with each new build is something that we do everyday. We build limitless styles for endless operational needs. And we provide solutions as much as we provide buildings.

Roof Systems

Our advanced standing seam roof systems provide excellent weather resistance, minimal maintenance, and energy efficiency, all at an excellent value. Standing seam roof systems have proven themselves as lifetime products when cared for properly. Never again will you have to factor in a re-roof. With minimal maintenance, a standing seam roof can outlast us all. Third party testing has proven that a Galvalume standing seam roof can exceed 60 years of useable life.

Metal Wall Panels

Our metal wall panels are versatile, attractive, and best of all, economical. A perfect blend of form and function. Pre-painted, single skin metal panel walls are the most economical solution to providing long-term enclosed space in a building project. With finish warranties of 35 years, there is no need to factor in the expense of a repaint every 3-5 years. Using a unique profile and 26- or 24- gauge construction, the Chief Standard (CS) and Architectural Panel (AP) wall offerings are guaranteed to please.

Quick to Build

We understand getting your operation up and running is a top priority, and there is no quicker way to make that happen than with a metal building system. At Chief, we can help you get into business quicker by minimizing design time and on-site construction. Our network of highly capable Builders are located throughout the US and poised to deliver you the service and the building you need within your schedule.

  • STEEL: THE ULTIMATE SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL

    Steel, unlike other construction materials, can be recycled over and over again?without ever losing quality. it?s called multi-cycling, and the result is that old steel can be reborn into new structures.

    STEEL MANUFACTURING IS A PROCESS?AND THANKS TO MULTI-CYCLING?IT HAS NEVER-ENDING LIFE CYCLE. RECYCLED STEEL CAN COME FROM MANY PLACES, INCLUDING:

    Consumers:

    Almost 100% of out-of-service cars are recycled every year. Recently, that yearly total accounted for recycled steel equivalent in weight to 11.6 million cars.

    Deconstruction:

    Steel components removed from a building can be re-used and never sent to a landfill.

    Waste:

    Steel generates virtually no on-site construction waste. And if there is waste, you guessed it. It can be recycled.

  • STEEL: THE ULTIMATE SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL

    Steel, unlike other construction materials, can be recycled over and over again?without ever losing quality. it?s called multi-cycling, and the result is that old steel can be reborn into new structures.

    STEEL FABRICATION, THE PROCESS OF MANUFACTURING PROJECT-SPECIFIC COMPONENTS, ACCOUNTS FOR 70% OF LABOR ASSOCIATED WITH FINISHED STEEL PRODUCTS.

    For that reason, we have implemented some of the industry?s most efficient fabricating processes at Chief Buildings, and any waste generated is recycled. Finally, we take great pride in working with each and every customer to create the most energy-efficient buildings.

  • ENERGY-EFFICIENT PROCESSES

    HERE ARE SOME OF THE POSITIVE RESULTS OUR INDUSTRY IS MAKING:

    One ton of steel can be made in half an hour, compared to 1980 when 12 hours were needed to create the same amount. The result?less energy is consumed in today?s mills.

    Steels' carbon footprint has been reduced by 47% since 1990.


    95% of the water used in steel production is recycled. The result?only 60 net gallons of water are used to produce one ton of steel.

  • ENERGY-EFFICIENT STRUCTURES

    HERE ARE SOME OF THE POSITIVE RESULTS OUR INDUSTRY IS MAKING:

    Our steel structures, fabricated offsite, can be erected quickly in the field, reducing construction equipment emissions.

    Our steel generates virtually no on-site construction waste, and any waste generated is recycled by our network of builders.

    We build to suit endless operational needs, making companies (and their buildings) run more efficiently.
