What kind of building survives the extremes of the American Southwest?Ask Great Western.

High temperatures by day, frigid temperatures by night. Arizona, (related: Arizona Metal Buildings)Southern Nevada, and New Mexico are known throughout the world for their scenic desert landscapes. But the scenery isn’t all they’re known for – the unforgiving southwestern sun; that heat, the stagnant air, and the possibility of flash floods. Super-hot by day, dropping as much as 60 degrees at night, it takes a special kind of structure to withstand those kinds of extremes in a 24-hour period.

For centuries, people in the southwest have relied on adobe construction to combat the elements. These mud huts served their purpose, but they never lasted long. A traditional brick-and-mortar building might withstand the elements, but at what cost? A more affordable solution? A steel building.

You’re probably going to want your workshop or factory to handle the additional weight of air conditioning units in Arizona; you’re going to want a finish that doesn’t offend the unique look of the stucco buildings in New Mexico. You need a structure that isn’t going to take long to construct when you work in the deserts of southern Nevada. Why not purchase a pre-engineered, easy-to-erect, and customizable Nevada Steel Building Kit? The precision-engineered kit shortens erection time and helps you avoid issues on-site. Who wants to have problems when building in that heat?

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