The new look of pre-engineered steel buildings

CAVCON recently became an authorized builder for Varco Pruden.  When people think of pre-engineered steel buildings, what typically comes to mind is a box like structure with no character.  That couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Construction of a steel building occurs in a fraction of the time and cost of conventional buildings offers a cost effective solution to meet your building needs.

Pre-engineered steel buildings are becoming more versatile and CAVCON is able to customize commercial projects utilizing this type of material to satisfy specific customer needs. There’s an endless list of features that can be added: doors, windows, insulation, vents, rounded structures and a variety of exterior finishes.  Energy Star approved roofing systems are also available adding to green construction efforts.

The versatility of steel gives architects the freedom to achieve their most ambitious visions. Structural steel is an essential component of most stadiums, shopping centers and commercial developments; steel cladding systems adorn iconic, landmark structures worldwide. Steel is one of the most sustainable construction materials. Its strength and durability coupled to its ability to be recycled, again and again, without ever losing quality make it truly compatible with long term sustainable development.


custom designed to meet your needs

Building owners value the flexibility of steel buildings for their light, open, airy spaces that can be created.  This feature makes it ideal for modernization, reconfiguring, extending or adapting with minimal disruption and without costly and sometimes harmful demolition and redevelopment. Even without these benefits, steel is often the first choice on the basis of cost alone. Many of the advantages of prefabricated steel design and construction are applicable to all building types and sectors.

CAVCON is able to create and estimate complex or simple buildings utilizing more variations in dimensions and format of steel buildings.  They do this utilizing Varco Pruden Command, a proprietary design software, which is recognized as a technology leader throughout the world. The building construction is done using different steel shapes and pieces.  These pieces are delivered onsite causing minimal disruption.  Construction of a steel building occurs in a fraction of the time and cost of conventional buildings provides a cost effective solution to your building needs.  Steel building delivers the peace of mind that comes from never having to worry about ongoing maintenance.
