Engineered Metal Buildings Cloverleaf

Have you ever wondered how metal buildings in Cloverleaf are put together or manufactured? The process is both complicated and precise. The manufacture of a metal building is an awesome combination of engineering, draftsmanship, ingenuity, teamwork, know-how and metal building manufacturing expertise. Each building receives the utmost care and attention throughout the manufacturing process, manufactured by experienced craftsmen and watched over by a dedicated staff of professionals from start to finish. Precision engineering, machinery and components plus exceptional quality control yield a precision high quality manufactured product.

Once a customer has purchased a pre-engineered metal building or metal building system, their sales person, who performs multiple functions of building consultant, building designer, technician and estimator, forwards the purchaser’s order to the steel building factory. In the top metal building factories, the factory itself fabricates all required building components in house. That way, all components are compatible and go together easily on the job site with no surprises and no waiting for components to arrive from different suppliers.

At the steel building factory, the order entry department oversees the order from start to finish, from the time the order is received until the steel building is shipped. Steel building factory staff verifies all design codes, snow and wind loads and seismic information to make sure that everything complies with the purchaser’s contract and enters the order into scheduling software to ensure that the buildings manufacture is efficiently managed.

How does one elect the best metal building to use in Cloverleaf based on all the factors to consider?

Contrary to popular thinking, the building construction industry does not only revolve around brick, mortar, steel and hard labor. Compared to the yesteryears of construction, the role of technology cannot be denied — it is essential in developing and enhancing the building sector to ensure processes are sped up, communication improved and efficiency is maximized.

To better illustrate the positive impact of technology on construction, let’s look at this scenario. In the 1940’s, 30 weeks is the shortest time that a new homeowner is able to move into his new detached, two-storey house. The speed in which the same house can be built is increased significantly over the years, and by the time the 1980’s arrive, houses can be built in as little as eight weeks. Today, with advancements such as prefab technologies, families are able to live in their dream homes upon completion of construction in a little over a month.

No significant efficiencies leveraged?

The integration of information technology paved the way for every industry to thrive and maximize productivity, but the construction sector has yet to see notable product gains. Stanford University researchers discovered that the impact of technology on construction of buildings is not as strong or consistent compared to impacts on say, manufacturing, for example. In manufacturing, the implementation of a particular technology within a process usually carries through and all products after that are produced using that same technology, or at least until improvements are made.

This is not quite true when it comes to ensuring the same brand of efficiency and consistency in the field of construction. Where the process flow in manufacturing is consistent, the construction sector adopts a “one-off” nature of construction. In other words, a construction process using a particular type of technology may or may not carry over to the next project. Each project is considered a prototype, and is to start from scratch. Back to square one, as some may observe.

This is probably due to project teams not remaining consistent throughout the project.

Understandably, project teams rarely remain the same when each project begins, but the issue may lie within project leaders as those with authority do not generally exercise efforts to continue systematic innovations throughout their practices. In a nutshell, people do not feel the need to share valuable knowledge and procedures.

Some ways to ensure significant efficiencies are leveraged include:

· Ensure standardization in documentation

· Aim to increase consistent technology adoption

· Leaders need to step in and take charge with wise and informed decision-making

· Integrate project structures across all projects

· Encourage open information sharing

· Increase frequency of project team meeting and discussion

Positive impacts of technology and innovations on building construction

When implemented wisely, these technologies can and will meaningfully improve the construction industry. They include:

1. Pre-fabrication

Pre-fabrication is the practice of assembling building components (be it walls or floors) off-site and then transporting the semi-finished components to be assembled where the building foundation is located. Think of it as “snap-on” technology if you will, but compared to traditional methods, this pre-assembly technique brings on to the construction sector:

- Time savings of 15-20%

- Increased cost efficiency

- Less energy and material wastage

- Ensure safety of construction

- Decreased pollution (less noise and dust) when components are assembled in a controlled environment

2. Communication

- Cameras placed on-site lets building owners view the ongoing process without actually travelling to the site.

- VOIP technology provides means for cost-effective communication back and forth

- Web-based project management systems allow seamless project collaboration and administrative activities between all parties involved — this increases productivity and accuracy while reducing cycle time.

- Strategic social media networking practices can help construction companies increase awareness, sales leads and generally bring on previously-unleveraged avenues of profits.

3. GPS System

Machines employing the use of GPS can perform tasks accurately without being told what to do, and when or where to do it. More importantly, it alleviates risks especially if there are rookie operators in the cockpit.

The last thing that you need when you purchase a metal building is to find that the building is not high enough once it is erected. And if you do not understand the terminology you may have no recourse from the supplier.

If you ask a manufacturer, supplier or contractor for a building that is 16 feet high, what exactly do you mean? Are you looking for a building that has an outside side wall height of 16 feet? Do you need 16 feet of CLEAR height inside the building?

Metal building kits are traditionally sold with heights referring to the outside eave height. In the case above, the 16 feet would refer to the height on the outside from the foundation level to the top of the roof purlins (the framing members that stretch from frame to frame.

This means that the interior clear height will be quite a bit less. In a narrow building, the interior height could be only 14 feet. In a much wider metal building, the interior clear height might only be 11 feet! That's right. You could loose five feet or more in height depending on the width (we're talking perhaps 150 feet wide or more) of your building, the required design loading and the particular type of building.

The roof slope of your building can also have an impact on the clear height of your building. You may require only 14 feet in height at the side walls but need 16 feet five or six feet in from the side wall.

All of these factors should be considered when deciding on the height of your new building.

Now I must tell you that the only places that you would loose that much height is at the frame lines. In between the frames, you would have your eave height less the height of the actual roof purlins (usually eight to twelve inches). So, if you needed 15 feet clear for a specific piece of equipment that would be placed right at the sidewall, a 16-foot eave height would often suffice.

The main thing is to discuss all of your needs clearly with your supplier whether he is a manufacturer, contractor or dealer. You owe it to yourself to ensure that the building that you place an order for will suit your needs.
