Build faster with steel

Steel is also extremely resistant to natural occurrences such as cyclones, snowstorms, earthquakes and floods. Steel framed buildings have been known to resist earthquakes of a magnitude up to 7.9 on the Richter scale and winds up to 350 km/h ! As water damage is the primary contaminant in a home after a flood, having components such as steel which do not promote mold growth lessens the proliferation of mold entering the home. By creating homes resistant to various environmental effects, they are able to thrive for centuries. Steel parts are pre-engineered to a specific design inside the manufacturing plant and are shipped out, ready to be erected. This speeds up construction time significantly, making it possible to complete large-scale projects in a matter of weeks.

Save money with steel

Innovation in steel production, combined with greater competition to meet rising steel demands, has brought steel prices lower than they've been in twenty years. According to the American Institute of Steel Construction, "In 1980, 10 man-hours were required to produce a single ton of steel. Today that same ton of structural steel requires substantially less than a single man-hour." Thus, these cost savings can be passed on to the consumer.

The versatility of steel is unrivalled

Architects and designers like steel's ability to let their artistic imaginations run wild, while still having the ability to design and construct a building that is both safe and resilient.

By constructing a steel house, your causing less damage to the environment. In a steel home, every piece of manufactured steel is engineered, created and delivered with a purposeful destination. It is custom designed to fit your home’s structure, meaning that there is no steel “waste” produced onsite. In contrast, wood, the traditional method used to frame homes, arrives in bundles on site and is cut as needed, leaving an excessive amount of scrap wood pieces in the dumpster. Steel is one of the most recyclable and reusable materials in the construction industry. Steel’s strength does not wear down, creep or buckle and can easily be repurposed for other projects. It is also 98% recyclable, placing it at the epitome of environmentally-conscious building frame materials.

Reduction in Energy Costs for Your Home

Steel, being one of the strongest possible materials to use for your home, can support thicker layers of insulation without compromising structural integrity. With thicker insulation, homes don’t lose as much heat (or cool in the summer!) and this cuts costs on your home energy bill. You can set your home’s heat to a lower temperature than usual, as accounting for heat loss through your home isn’t a necessity. An insulated steel home can save you at least 30% off your energy bill.

Further Energy Saving with Solar

If saving energy due to your home’s superior insulation wasn’t enough, be mindful of the fact that steel frame homes are amazingly strong and can support solar panels without a problem. Solar panels add value to your home while reducing your energy bill, since you are creating your own! A typical return on investment for a solar panel is 15-20% and the investment continues to grow as energy is becoming more and more costly, not to mention the sense of security knowing that your home will be able to support these panels indefinitely. We provide part and full off-grid electric solutions, for solar panel installations click here or contact service@shipmyhome.com

Environmental Resistance

Steel is amazing for many reasons – but where it showcases most of its benefits is in its complete inability to allow mold to grow. Steel frame homes do not require any type of special treatments to prevent mold, decay or insect infestation. Steel cannot absorb moisture and therefore cannot host any bacteria that would compromise the health of the home’s habitants. Steel is also extremely resistant to natural occurrences such as snowstorms, earthquakes and floods. Steel homes have been known to resist earthquakes of a magnitude up to 7.9 on the Richter scale. As for floods, BONE Structure ensures that its shell components are made of flood damage-resistant materials. As water damage is the primary contaminant in a home after a flood, having components such as steel which do not promote mold growth lessens the proliferation of mold entering the home. By creating homes resistant to various environmental effects, they are able to thrive for centuries.

Meeting Green Building Codes and Standards

The knowledge that your future home will be durable is guaranteed with a steel-framed home. Its unparalleled structural strength, reduced maintenance costs, environmental resistance and recyclability indicate that your steel home has a guaranteed return on investment. The traditional wood-frame homes, that North America continues to build, are not in the environmental direction that this industry needs to be heading. Cold-formed steel is positioned to meet the highest sustainability standards as it is recognized in all major green building and rating programs, including the National Green Building Standard for residential buildings and the US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program. Steel has always been easily recycled into new studs, joists and other components used in construction of new buildings. Notably, steel is the only building material with an automatic default value for recycled content in the LEED program (Steel Framing Alliance, 2016), making it more sustainable than wood. Steel-framed homes are incomparable and they are a leader in the environmentally conscious age in which the construction industry is starting to grow towards.

Low cost housing Plans

Steel prefabricated homes have a longer life span than wood or concrete infrastructures. It is also the fastest and cheapest way to construct. The foundation for a steel home or office is much cheaper because of its light weight properties.

Taxes & Insurance

As steel prefabs are environmentally friendly, taxes are usually very low. It’s ability to withstand high winds, heavy snow loads, fire and seismic activities, combined with their resistance to pests and decay, insurance companies often offer lower premiums on policies underwritten for metal buildings.

Housing Plan Background

Low housing plans are homes or offices constructed based on our pre-made designed. The amount of square meters and the interior & exterior decor are standard. For more information or to get access to the those design, contact us at service@shipmyhome.com

Time frames

Time is money

Time has always equaled money, but it seems like this high-tech era of ours has made it so that every clients wants their building to come in under budget and ahead of schedule. Fast-tracked projects can be a nightmare for architects and construction crews - namely because taking shortcuts can lead to unsafe building practices and a finished product that isn't up to snuff. That all changes with the addition of steel. Steel parts are pre-engineered to a specific design inside the manufacturing plant and are shipped out, ready to be erected. This speeds up construction time significantly, making it possible to complete large-scale projects in a matter of weeks.

Meticulously calculated

Because the fabrication process is highly quality-controlled, project managers can place their attention on other issues and the pre-cut, ready to assemble parts eliminate the need for measuring and cutting on site. This also takes the element of human error out of the equation, reducing the amount of time spent assembling something only to find out it needs to be re-measured, cut and installed again.

Surrounding Environment

In addition to project time and budget issues, a faster construction timeline also reduces the amount of time your construction project impedes traffic, affects the flow into and out of surrounding businesses and any water or utility disruptions to nearby buildings.
