Steel is the Right Choice For Cost Savings

Cost Savings

STEELRITE® is all about saving time and money by removing cost from our buildings.

The reason why steel is the right choice for your structure, hense the name STEELRITE®, is that steel has the strongest strength to weight ratio of any building product. For instance, a light gauge steel 2x4 is approximately 40% lighter than a similar wood 2x4, believe it or not. Therefore, when building with light gauge steel, the overall building weight is significantly lower than other buildings. Especially when you compare these structures to the much heavier masonry and concrete buildings.

STEELRITE®’s building solutions can reduce the cost of foundations considerably and have less impact on the surrounding environment. The STEELRITE® long span deck option was designed to reduce the amount of concrete that would be needed to span a similar area. Our Thinflor™ deck weighs only 55lbs. per square foot as compared to 80 to 100 pounds with precast or poured in place. We require less concrete which saves time and money.

The building stability packages are also less expensive when considering the reduction in mass that needs to be kept stable in an earthquake.

We practice competitive bidding when procuring our building materials and are not tied to any one distributor or manufacturer.

We make it a practice to self-perform most of the stages of construction to keep labor and overhead costs to a minimum.

We also panelize our walls and assemblies to speed the construction process and reduce the overall duration of a project considerably, saving on general conditions and generating revenue quickly for our clients.

The overall total savings proves that STEELRITE® is the right choice for your next project.
