Today, a number of the most beautiful churches in the United States and worldwide are built with 100% metal. Metal buildings are no longer considered the rusted out barns that blemished the American landscape for many years. Metal buildings now have hundreds of applications from sanctuaries to gymnasiums, from sports complexes to schools, from self-storage structures to grocery stores, from fellowship halls to pastor’s residences, from offices to structures that might conform to any human need today. The metal building technology has undergone myriad changes in its design and engineering that have now made this method of construction, one of the fastest growing facets in the church building industry today.
The simplicity of its design complemented with the versatility of the structures has fuelled the popularity of metal structures for use as churches.
* The clear-span construction (or column-free interiors) and
* The high ceilings.
Both of these features are easily and readily accommodated with quality metal building design. Properly-constructed metal buildings have a track record of being extremely resistant to the forces of wind, snow, rain, seismic activity, and insect infestation.
Pockets unscathed with finesse unmatched!
The increasing popularity of metal building constructions, especially as the benefactor for churches also revolves around the cost effectiveness and swiftness of pre-engineered construction.
Some metal buildings can be purchased and erected at significantly lesser cost than conventional construction. All component building parts of a metal church are pre-punched, pre-drilled, and pre-welded at a factory prior to shipment to the erection site. This pre-engineering allows for rapid assembly processes and precludes the need for a specialized and expensive workforce. This results, thus in a lower quantity labor force required along with rapid assembly processes. Once delivered, depending upon its size, a church can be completed in far lesser time than more traditional building methods take. Metal buildings are also extremely flexible and can be designed for virtually any configuration. Metal building designs are no longer limited to the more primitive geometrical “box” shapes of the past.
The metal building industry is also a leader in the American recycling processes. The majority of all metal used in the United States is recycled and all new metal contains some recycled metal in its constitution. The fact that there is unlimited recyclables to any metal product is the most melodious piece of news for eco-friendly masses.
