Is a Structural Steel Building System for You?

Use and Pricing of a Capital Steel Industries Building System

Why use a pre-engineered steel structure for your building project?

If you require a long span with column-free spaces to meet the function of your building, steel has the capability of providing you with this.

Being Kind to the Environment

The American Institute of Steel Construction calls structural steel “the premier construction material”. It is adaptable to your business or home, resilient, and has high recycled content. It can actually be recycled over and over and over again.

Shorten your construction schedule

Steel has the ability to be designed, engineered and erected rapidly. Engineered off-site means that much of the work is done before it shows up on your job site. With the exception of anchor bolts, a steel building system is not only pre-welded and 100% bolt together construction, it is delivered to your job site with everything you will need to enclose the building.

Designed for Your Unique Project

A steel building system is designed with the atmospheric conditions of your location in mind. This means that your building will be designed specifically to your project’s unique details and taking into consideration weather conditions, local codes and loads.

American Made Steel

Capital Steel (CSI) provides the highest quality buildings in the industry using 100% American made steel. American steel has a higher quality than most imported steel. In fact, some imported steel can have serious quality defects and even pose safety risks when used in certain applications. American steel is produced under conditions that are better for the environment.

How is Your Steel Building Priced?

The price of your standard building package will be based on the current price of steel, the intended use and the codes and loads required by your locale.

The pandemic has certainly affected the price of steel. Since the pandemic, timber production has slowed down. The price of timber has increased greatly because of the lack of supply. The low timber supply and increase in its price, has increased the demand for steel.

For example, in the timber market, plywood has gone up 3 to 4 times its previous price. A $7 sheet of plywood now costs between $20 and $25. Therefore, the cost of building with wood has also gone up tremendously

Tariffs have decreased the availability of foreign steel. No, Capital Steel does not use or recommend foreign steel. However, since other metal companies can’t get steel from other countries, this demand for American made steel has caused the rise in its pricing.

Capital Steel Industries is raising its pricing 20% on January 1, 2021

All steel building systems that are quoted now reflect this 20% increase. To avoid this increase, customers can purchase their building system by signing a contract and putting down a 20% deposit by December 31, 2020.

Additionally, Capital Steel anticipates another increase by January 31, 2021. Capital Steel Industries wants customers to know about this additional increase that will happen at the end of January 2021 so there are no surprises for you.
