Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
East & Westbrook Construction

Trust the experts. Learn more about what makes East & Westbrook's pre-engineered metal building service your top choice.

Founded in 1977, our decades of experience as industrial and commercial contractors and steel building erectors of pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB) have given East & Westbrook a keen understanding of the industry. We develop expert solutions to the most complex structures in various industries, such as manufacturing, power generation, warehousing/distribution, and steel and chemical companies, to name a few, with industrial and commercial clients throughout Kentucky, West Virginia, Florida, and Tennessee.

When your company is deciding whether or not to construct a pre-engineered metal building, there are some important advantages to consider. Pre-engineered metal building construction is a top choice for companies that are looking for higher cost efficiency, as this method of construction allows for a curated building at a reasonable price. Additionally, design flexibility is a component of PEMBs that stands out to those interested in constructing a building to meet their needs. Typically, there is decreased production time, as all materials are pre-cut and prepared for your specific design specifications before they are delivered to the construction site. The structural strength of East & Westbrook’s PEMBs is top-notch, as our team works to construct a building that is dependable for years to come. Lastly, PEMBs are easily expandable and allow for easy expansion when the client decides this is needed.

At East & Westbrook, safety is never compromised. No matter the project, timeline, or budget, our team is committed to implementing the highest level of safety possible on the job site. Prior to the start of a pre-engineered metal building project, the safety department works with the estimating department, project management team, and field crew to ensure the safety of our team and anyone else on the job site. Prior to mobilization, our pre-engineered metal building team works with the estimating and production teams to analyze specifications, such as the size of the building and the highest and lowest eave, which helps us determine the fall clearances and determine the proper fall protection equipment. Additionally, we brainstorm site configuration, decide whether or not a crane will be needed to install any portion of the PEMB, and work in conjunction with or around other trades. We choose the correct crew size and the experience required for the project. 

Carefully considering every aspect of the project ensures the safest construction process possible. Our steel erection plan is a highly detailed and organized outline that we complete for all of our pre-engineered metal building projects. However, it is most important to us that our efforts go beyond the paper, which is why we train our employees to create a safe work environment and prepare them for the plan before beginning any project.
