Warehouse construction

Storage and warehousing of stock or parts are where steel sheds and similar buildings come into their own. A steel framed building means the whole of the inside of the building is available for storage and access with no internal pillars to get in the way. Steel walls are also lighter than brick allowing for taller interior heights. This allows for high-shelving increasing the volume of storage per square metre, or for the storage of tall or bulky objects such as boats or machines.

For warehouses where cost and volume per square foot are the principle business considerations, it's almost impossible to beat the value of a new steel building.
