Worldwide Steel Buildings has designed and manufactured Hangars for customers all across the US and in several other countries. As an AOPA sponsor we understand protecting your investment is at the top of your list and are proud to say we have never lost a hangar due to weather. With several different styles available please stop by our Booth #4080 at The Spirit of Aviation EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh Wisconsin July 23-29, 2018 to discuss your project.

Summer is officially here – but we don’t need to tell you that. Cities across the country have been experiencing record heat and high temperatures, and fall is still months away. It’s hot out there!

Fortunately, air conditioning is available pretty much everywhere, and that certainly includes steel buildings. Each of our building kits is completely customizable to accommodate the specific climate control needs of your building usage. Keep in mind it will get cold again and you want to be prepared.

Flexibility to incorporate building systems

Whether you want to air condition the office space within a hybrid warehouse/office structure, or provide climate control for your entire garage, workshop, or single-family steel home, you can plan and layout your own HVAC (as well as power and other systems) for part or all of your building kit. Need a little help? Our experienced customer service team can work with you to understand your HVAC and systems needs and customize your building kit to achieve them.

Design elements to help you keep your cool

While HVAC is the primary means of keeping things cool in the warm weather, some of the most basic design elements can also be used to help manage climate and air circulation in your steel building:

  • Doorways / openings – with clear span buildings 24-225 feet, our steel building kits allow for large garage-style door openings on multiple sides of the building to provide cross-ventilation.
  • Windows – another obvious, but important one: our clear span designs also allow you to place windows to maximize (or minimize) natural light and ventilation based on your specific building site.
  • Ceilings / roofs – the open design of our building kits means you can customize the ceiling height and roof pitch to allow heat to rise to the top of your building, vent out of your building and away from your belongings, equipment – and from you.

The Fourth of July is a great time to gather with family and friends and celebrate the founding of our country. For us, it’s also a time to celebrate our customers’ confidence in our products.

Whether it’s starting a small business, expanding to meet the needs of your growing company, non-profit, or community, or creating a space for your family to enjoy, thank you for your trust in working with us. We’re proud to be a small part of helping you build your American dream.

If you’ve owned a steel building in the past, or even if you’ve just been researching building options, you probably already know some of the benefits of steel: strength, durability, value.

But did you know steel is the #1 most recycled material in the world? According to the Steel Recycling Institute, between 60 and 80 million tons of scrap steel are recycled every year by North American steel mills into new steel products and components. In fact, scrap steel is an ingredient in producing new steel.

Our building kits at Worldwide Steel Buildings are made of approximately 94 percent recycled steel, all of it sourced from American steel mills. Using recycled steel gives our customers all the great features of steel – lighter yet stronger than other building materials; resistance to all types of weather; flexibility of design; and more – with the added benefits that come from recycling, including:

  • Performance. Because of steel’s properties, it can be repeatedly recycled from one use or product to another without compromising structural integrity or performance.
  • Environmental impact. Recycling steel reduces the amount of resources consumed and emissions produced involved in creating steel products, reducing its impact on our environment and our planet.
  • Economy. Not having to produce new steel for every new product also reduces the cost of steel products to consumers – enhancing the already great value of this high-quality building material.
  • American manufactured. Worldwide is proud to use exclusively American steel, which means – because U.S. steel mills use largely recycled materials – that buying recycled steel is an important part of keeping money and jobs in our country and our communities.

Our goal at Worldwide Steel Buildings is to provide our customers high-quality, affordable steel building kits customized to their unique needs or purpose. We love to share our customers’ stories and the great things they are doing with our products:

Wings of Faith: “Real People Meeting Real Needs”

Wings of Faith Ministries provides ongoing support and donations to missionaries serving mainly Native American populations in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, as well as communities in Appalachian West Virginia. Their volunteer light aircraft pilots make more than 60 flights a year to bring food, clothing, medical supplies, and other aid to those who need it.

Several years ago, Wings of Faith purchased one of our steel building kits to house supplies and donations awaiting distribution to the communities they serve. Jim Yost, who coordinates logistics and deliveries for Wings of Faith, shared these thoughts and photos:

“Our building from Worldwide has proved absolutely invaluable in serving the very poor of the Native American reservations of the Four Corners area. I cannot imagine doing what we do without it. In May 2018, we moved over 50,000 pounds of supplies through this building.”

 

Thanks to Jim for sharing your story, and for the great work your organization is doing to help others! To learn more about Wings of Faith, visit flywithwings.org.

Summer is here – and wedding season has begun. June, August, September, and October are the most popular months for weddings, as well as other events such as family reunions, outdoor concerts or community gatherings.

Our high-quality steel building kits are fully customizable and an affordable way to create an event space tailored to your needs. Whether you own catering or special event business and want to offer customers a dedicated wedding/event space; your church wants to add or expand a reception hall, or you’re a proud parent wanting to create a custom space for your daughter’s (or son’s) dream wedding, we are here to help.

Wide Open Spaces

Because they don’t need columns, our steel structures offer clear spans from 24 feet to 225 feet, giving you clear floor spans and usable space all the way up to the peak.

Durable and Economical

Steel building kits are a convenient and quicker alternative than traditional construction – and generally much more affordable. The value of our custom metal buildings, however, comes not just from the budget but from their quality, durability, and ease of assembly. We manufacture our own trusses, which are welded in precision jigs for accuracy, double dipped in a rust-proof coating, and inspected to ensure your structure will stand the test of time.

Finishing Touches for a Perfect Space

Both our interiors and exteriors are fully customizable with a variety of styles, colors, and finishes to ensure your event space is not only functional, but attractive. Our customer service team will work closely with you to design your space inside and out, from \ electrical, water and HVAC, to layout, interior walls, overhangs or porches, and finishes ranging from wood to stone to stucco. Want a rustic country feel? Our Gambrel barn specialists can help you create a classic look and charm to your space.

  • Office

Steel buildings are far more advanced than you may think. Prefab steel buildings have windows, doors and stylish designs customized to your needs, so this makes them ideal for a home office. Instead of taking up home living space or having to rent an office, a prefab steel building can easily be built on your property. This gives you plenty of room for a comfortable office for both you and your clients. Ranging from small sheds 12’ wide to large clearspan buildings up to 100’ wide, you will be able to fit yourself and your growing business. Each Worldwide building is easy to add on to for future expansion.

  • Workshop

A workshop can be very practical. It doesn’t matter if it’s for wood working, a place to work on your cars, or just a hobby, having a workshop grants you the safe space and storage you need to work on your craft. Not only is this convenient, it’s safe as well. With an entirely separate workshop you can safely store your project with your tools and any specialty items you use. Your workshop can be customized to match your home or be a stand alone with its own look.

  • Garage

Whether you’re looking for a single car garage or a garage large enough to hold your car collection, a steel garage building goes up fast and easy with unmatched strength. With a prefab steel building you can easily customize your door placements and exterior look. A metal garage gives you the style and function you need and the strength to handle what mother nature throws at it. Build a steel framed garage and you will not only improve your property value, but also have peace of mind.

What about a child who is old enough to need their own privacy? Are you avid entertainers and want a place your visitors can stay for the evening? A beautiful guest house can solve all of your problems.

I live in northern Kansas and I needed a building built. I had a 40-50 year old machine shed that had been converted into a pole barn on the property. The people we bought the property from had added a concrete floor. The building was an absolute piece of junk. It only had one garage door in it. It was rusted and dated. I looked into painting it and got several quotes, but the painting costs were outrageous. The cost to paint it was going to be $13,700 due to the rotting and the condition of the siding. The cost for the new building was $14,200.

Finding a Company  

I looked at pole barns and other steel buildings and read some of the testimonials. I called 8-9 different companies. To be honest, when I called to talk to some others, they transferred me around. I left messages places and never got responses. Many of them never bothered to even call back.

Choosing Worldwide Steel

When I reached Derek at Worldwide Steel, he was extremely easy to talk to, answered all of my questions, and gave me quotes. He sent me brochures, I looked at the quality and different things. It was pretty evident right from the beginning that he was customer service oriented. I felt very comfortable with Derek. He followed up several times and we talked over the course of maybe a month and a half before I figured out what I wanted for sure. He walked me through the process and the warranty was excellent.

The Storage Garage

I bought a 30×56 building because I already had the pre-existing concrete pad from the old barn. ​It’s a garage – three full garage doors plus a toy door for bringing in the lawn mower, ranger, etc. I will be using it for equipment storage – a boat and two vehicles.

The Construction

I originally had a local contractor take down the old building and do some concrete work. The contractor gave me a ridiculously low price to build out new building as well. When I called Worldwide to talk with them about the contractor’s plan, they were able to give me helpful tips and explain to me exactly what needs to be done as far as the construction of the new building. They also got me in touch with a contractor who could go through the process seamlessly.

Instead of trying to build it myself, I hired a contracting crew that was recommended by Worldwide Steel and is one of their number one contractors. I was extremely pleased with them. They came out and built it in five days. They worked with the insulation company and were very professional. They did a super job!

Changes along the Way

Worldwide Steel is extremely customer oriented. From day one, when I finally decided the size of my building, they sent me blueprints for the building based on what I had told them I was hoping to get from the building. I could email and call and was able to completely customize and revise the blueprints with the help of worldwide employees.

Communication Was Key to a Seamless Job

Anytime I had questions, anytime I would call, I never talked to anyone from Worldwide who wasn’t overly helpful. From the littlest question to the receptionist, it didn’t matter who I was talking to or what I was asking. I had no hiccups along the way. I added the insulation package per the salesman’s suggestion and I have been extremely happy with it. The tiny issue that I ran into with the insulation company not sending enough insulation was immediately handled by Worldwide Steel and only postponed the whole process by half a day. The contractor didn’t charge extra for the additional time since it

wasn’t my fault. I’ve stayed in touch with our sales rep since then and have bragged continuously about how easy the process was and how seamlessly the project went.

Worldwide Steel’s Customer Service Is Amazing

Worldwide will build you whatever you want. You give them what you want and you can either put it up yourself or hire one of their exceptional contractors to take care of the job for you. Derek has obviously never pressured us. I can’t emphasize the customer service level enough.

My One Regret

I wish I could say more. We just love the building. The only thing that I regret was that we didn’t include the mezzanine for additional storage. I would recommend that to anybody. Much better warranty than anything else and I was impressed from the very beginning.

If you’re planning on building a garage, shed, large barn, or other structure, make sure to call Worldwide Steel first. We’ll make it painless. Call and talk to one our helpful salespeople at (800) 825-0316 or ​contact us online​. We’ll make sure your steel building is exactly what you wanted!
