What is the Primary Advantage of Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings?

You may already be familiar with the myriad advantages of pre-engineered steel buildings and the benefits of working with a metal building erector who’s an expert in the industry—saving time and money, ensuring quality, and offering customization at scale. But when you’re considering a pre-engineered metal building that’s built to last, how can you be sure that you’re working with the right metal building erector who will respect the site of your future business and deliver a safe PEMB installation?

In the realm of steel erection, a builder's commitment to safety is as crucial as the advantages offered by the structure itself.

Disadvantages of Pre-Engineered Buildings: Addressing Safety Challenges

Steel erection consistently ranks among the top 10 most hazardous occupations, according to BLS fatality data. Safety in this field is not merely an option; it's a non-negotiable requirement. Our design team at East & Westbrook acknowledges the challenges in finding erectors with the necessary safety statistics for industrial environments. To counter this, East & Westbrook made a strategic decision—to self-perform PEMB erection, aligning with OSHA safety guidelines to ensure a secure workplace.

At East & Westbrook, safety isn't just a commitment; it's an integral part of everything we do. Before the commencement of any project, our safety department collaborates closely with the estimating team, project management, and field crew to ensure the well-being of our team and all individuals on the job site. Assessing critical factors such as building size, eave height, and fall clearances, our PEMB team works in tandem with estimating and production teams to determine the necessary fall protection equipment. In this collaborative effort, we analyze site configurations, assess the need for cranes, and coordinate with other trades to create a seamless operation. Choosing an appropriate crew size and ensuring the right expertise is on board are paramount considerations in our safety-first approach.

Beyond the detailed steel erection plan, our commitment extends to hands-on training for our employees. We prioritize not just paperwork but real-time preparation, ensuring that our team is well-versed in creating a safe work environment before embarking on any project.

In an industry where challenges are prevalent, we approach each project with a determined spirit, using adversity as a chance to demonstrate our expertise. When faced with tough terrains and inherent risks, trust in our team and in the safety processes in place form the foundation of our approach. East & Westbrook excels in challenging environments, not only when constructing buildings but also in establishing a reputation for trust, dependability, and unmatched expertise.
