Metal Buildings Cost Less to Construct

Why Prefab Steel Buildings are the Best Construction Method

Let’s look at the ways pre-engineered metal buildings cost less to build.

Erecting a Steel Building Saves Time

RHINO pre-engineered steel buildings cost less to build because our construction method significantly speeds up the building process.

RHINO Metal Buildings Cost Less by Slashing Construction Time by 33%

Here are seven ways RHINO’s metal building construction saves time:

  • PREFABRICATION: All the framing components for RHINO steel buildings come ready to assemble.  Every piece is cut, welded, drilled, and painted at the factory.  Consequently, framers do not waste time culling, measuring, cutting, drilling, or welding.
  • FEWER PIECES: Steel’s strength creates a strong, durable structure with surprisingly few pieces.  Fewer pieces mean faster construction.
  • Man standing in front of the steel framing he erected.EASY ASSEMBLY: RHINO’s building system ensures hassle-free metal building construction.  The factory clearly marks every component for fast identification.   To simplify the process, the plans indicate the correct placement for each pre-labeled framing piece.
  • LOWER LABOR COSTS: The quicker a building goes up, the less money spent on labor.  Therefore, our prefab metal buildings cost less for overall labor, too.  Since erecting a steel building is so simple, some people erect their own steel buildings for even greater labor savings.
  • BUILDER INSURANCE SAVINGS: Since RHINO structures erect faster, builders spend on builder’s risk insurance, too.
  • LESS CONCRETE: Because steel’s unmatched strength-to-weight ratio actually makes the total framing package lighter than any other construction method, less concrete is required when erecting a steel building on a slab.  Therefore, less concrete is necessary for RHINO foundations, which offers additional savings.
  • FAR LESS WASTE: Removing construction debris costs money.  The more material left over to haul away, the greater the expense.  Fortunately, pre-engineered metal buildings produce very little scrap.  As an added bonus, any leftover steel scrap is sold for recycling.
