When designing and creating the perfect commercial building, there are critical characteristics that it should possess. These features include a sustainable design, proper aesthetics, accessibility, cost-effectiveness, safety, and security. Among the different types of commercial buildings, Butler buildings are the best at encompassing these characteristics of an ideal commercial building.
Butler buildings are pre-engineered steel or metal buildings that use high-quality roofing, structural, and insulating materials. These buildings are highly flexible in design and engineered to perform better than other conventional building types. Because of this, Butler buildings are becoming highly sought-after for commercial purposes across different industries.
Advantages of Butler Steel Buildings
From comprehensive design options to progressive building methods, many characteristics give Butler buildings an advantage over other designs. Here are some benefits of picking a Butler steel building for your commercial or industrial applications:
Superior Building Quality
Butler steel buildings are made with high-quality materials. In fact, their roofing systems alone have enough innovative features to put them ahead of other options.
The roof system on a butler steel building is engineered to be as weathertight as possible by using double-lock seams and a factory punching method to ensure proper roof alignment. It also features roof system clips that allow the structure to move freely as the panels expand and contract according to the daily and seasonal temperature changes. Furthermore, it comes with other features, including staggered panel splices, steel rod bracing, Kynar 500® and Hylar 5000® paint finish, and flexible ridges.
In addition, the fabrication process for a Butler steel building ensures its effectiveness and will preserve its value over time.
Butler steel buildings boast excellent energy efficiency and cost-friendly maintenance and replacement. They offer a wide range of sustainable roof and wall systems that achieve outstanding thermal efficiency. Moreover, these buildings also test the roof and wall U-factor assembly using the Butler guarded hot box. This state-of-the-art computerized data acquisition system can collect and provide accurate insulating information.
Butler steel buildings have a selection of 25-year color finishes that meet the reflectance and emittance standards to maintain a cool roof. These roof paint finishes improve cost-efficiency by minimizing the need for a significant budget to cool the building. In addition, these paint finishes lower roof temperatures and mitigates the energy costs for cooling a building by as much as thirty percent.
Maintenance and replacement are more convenient with Butler steel buildings. These buildings have long life cycles thanks to a fantastic roof system and high-quality and durable materials.
Butler steel buildings have highly flexible designs achieved through using 3D technology. This technique accurately visualizes the looks in the early stage of production and helps identify the needed adjustments to minimize error and reduce costs during construction and building.
Butler has the most extensive product line in the industry to meet various needs for functional or design purposes.
Butler provides its Butler Builder dealers with digital tools to keep tabs on all building components, order shipments, electronic erection drawings, and the initial design of the building. This helps avoid problems that may arise during the building process. Aside from this, Butler also offers a fall support system to provide better worker safety and a streamlined construction method that saves time and minimizes labor costs.
Butler steel buildings allow floor space to be maximized by developing a structural system that can achieve extended bay sizes up to 60 feet. This prevents interior columns from getting in the way, increasing the usable floor space.
One thing that sets Butler steel buildings apart is the rich research and development program. Butler has been perfecting its steel building design for nearly 120 years. Throughout that time, they have held over 50 patents, including the first featherweight standing-seam metal roof.
Butler has many tests focusing on product strength, efficiency, and longevity. These include full-scale load tests for frames, beams, and complex structures, acid rain tests, wind uplift tests, 1,000 hours of paint tests, and real-time tests to validate pain performance for up to 25 years or more.
All the R&D knowledge of Butler translates into Butler steel buildings, giving them the edge over other facilities in the market.
Butler connects you with experts from the Butler Builder network. They are an expert system of design-build contractors in regions like Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America. There are Butler Builder networks for local and government projects. Using their methods, these Builders will help you efficiently bring your Butler steel building project to fruition.
