Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings

Construction Corner Series :: Part 2 – Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings

January 27, 2016

Construction Corner Series:

When meeting with a client, Professional Contractors & Engineers, Inc. analyzes the best method of construction to meet the client’s specific priorities and needs. In addition to our custom conventional commercial building, PCE also specializes in tilt-up construction and pre-engineered metal buildings.

In an effort to help outline the construction options PCE has available, we’ve developed a short series to help showcase the differences between the types of construction.

Part 2 of 3 – Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings

PCE in conjunction with experienced architects, engineers and subcontractors has been building pre-engineered metal buildings 1999.


Pre-Engineered metal buildings are regularly utilized as an economical solution for both large and small industrial and commercial buildings. Due to the building system utilized, pre-engineered metal buildings allow for the creation of a framed space without the requirement of interior supporting columns.

Contrary to popular belief, pre-engineered metal buildings are actually custom-engineered to specific dimensions to meet the needs of the client and local building code regulations.

According to the Metal Building Manufacturers Association, “Metal building shipments over the past five years have held steady compared to total non-residential construction, and metal buildings remain the frontrunner in the low-rise, non-residential construction sector with over 50% market share (when compared to the F.W. Dodge Estimated Market report).”


Some of the benefits of pre-engineered metal buildings include: cost, design flexibility, sustainability, low maintenance, durability, and quick construction time.

We knew from the outset that undertaking a major addition, renovation and remodel to our 100+ year old sorority house, and doing it all while still having residents live-in, would not be an easy task. Fortunately, our choice to partner with PCE and Project Manager, Andy Bonderer, has been one of the best decisions we have made. We interviewed other contractors for the job, and they certainly tried to convince us that they were the preferred builder for Greek housing. But ultimately, it came down to finding a construction partner who would work with us to manage the unique complexities of the job and be just as invested in achieving an exceptional outcome as we were. Andy, Matt, and the whole PCE project team have been terrific. When we plan future construction projects, we would certainly seek out a partnership with PCE first.

PCE has been not only responsive and attentive, but proactive in anticipating issues with our project.

I trust that Andy, Matt and PCE have the owner’s best interest in mind as they work with the other professionals on our construction project.

PCE has kept me, a project manager located in another city, updated and informed – getting my input and opinion on decisions when necessary and making my job easier by presenting clear explanations and alternatives when we are faced with an issue.
