In many parts of the United States, the gas and oil industries are wildly successful, sustaining entire communities. It’s important for any industry to have solutions that work for it so it can keep going for years to come. When it comes to buildings to house all of the materials, processes and product that the industry produces, steel buildings are the obvious best choice for the job. Steel buildings have everything needed to be a great investment for the industry, as well as protect the material investments that come with oil and gas. Here are just a few reasons why steel buildings are the best choice for industries like Oil.
One of the most important factors of steel structures is how quickly they can be put up. This is one of the biggest considerations you’ll have to make when choosing a building method, because this has an effect on how quickly you’ll be able to start or continue your operations. Oil is an industry that is constantly growing, and having to wait on the construction of a building for weeks or months on end can put a damper on your business in a big way.
Choosing steel buildings will save you money in both upfront costs as well as long-term costs. Material-wise, the costs of a steel structure will be anywhere from 10% – 30% less than buying raw materials to build a similarly sized building. That’s in addition to lower labor costs, lower insurance and the lack of regular repairs and maintenance that will be required to keep the building in good shape. For buildings made of materials like wood or concrete that need constant upkeep, these costs can add up quickly.
Works In Any Climate
Steel buildings are structures that work in any climate, so no matter where in the country you operations are based out of, your building will be just fine. It might be 30 degrees or 70 degrees, but steel structures will stand up to these fluctuations and changes without damages to it whatsoever. THings like heavy snow and high winds would wreak havoc on buildings made of materials like wood, which can warp under the pressure, and brick or concrete, which can crack and decay under extreme weather conditions.
Our steel structures are engineered to last for years and years for a number of reasons. It’s a naturally strong material that is not susceptible to many of the things that affect other materials. Steel is resistant to pests like termites and they also don’t warp. This is imperative since the industry doesn’t really have the time to be replacing buildings every 10-15 years.
Lack of Maintenance
Another great thing about steel structures is just how little maintenance they require to stay in good shape. With steel buildings, there is virtually no maintenance that will be required, something that will save you time and money over the lifespan of your structure. Structures made of materials like brick, concrete or wood always have to be maintained, fixed and otherwise repaired in some way but with steel structures this isn’t an issue.
