Harsh winters, a beautiful fall – the place where history and the future meet – the city that never sleeps, and the first American colony. It is challenging to build in New England – unless you have a Great Western steel building kit.

There are conditions when building in Maine that you have to consider. For instance, there’s only certain times of the year that a tractor trailer can deliver a building because of asphalt conditions. It’s not something every steel building company knows about. But we do.

The snow loads in Vermont and New Hampshire are higher than in other parts of the country because there’s an assumption that leaves are still packed on roof tops, adding to the weight. Not something every steel building company knows about. But we do.

Pennsylvania requires a higher grade steel than other states, Massachusetts has brutal ice storms which can allow ice pack to build on roof tops over weeks, meaning higher snow loads. New York City will only allow steel buildings of a certain height to go up on their busy dock, and Connecticut is deeply concerned with curbside appeal of any structure. These aren’t things most steel building companies know or even care about – they’ll sell you what they want, not what you need. That’s not Great Western.

The engineers at Great Western have an intimate understanding of wind loads, foundation requirements, moisture issues and even the delivery and storage challenges South Eastern residents might face during the erection process.

  • Any size, any shape, any span, any height; we design the interior rigid frame to handle whatever you need – from a Rhode Island boat house to a factory in Pittsburgh
  • Assortment of color combinations to match your current property structures or surrounding Association codes
  • Several finishes to add the aesthetic elements you want – it’s gotta look sharp!
  • Agriculture, industrial, utilitarian, or recreation, there’s no project we can’t handle
