Steel Museum Buildings

For over 40 years, Steel Building Canada has been designing and delivering cost-effective and durable museum metal building solutions. Our prefabricated metal buildings for museums are extremely cost-effective solutions because our framing system comes pre-engineered and ready for assembly when it arrives on the construction site. The short build time saves both time and money so you can get your museum up and running in no time!

Steel museum buildings offer superior overall building strength and durability compared to other material types. Our metal buildings offer a “Class A” Fire Rating for added protection in case of a fire and can help lower insurance costs. They are engineered to withstand harsh weather conditions, such as strong winds, heavy snow, thunderstorms, and extreme temperatures.

Compared to traditional wood framing, our kits are manufactured with non-combustible materials that require virtually no maintenance and are easy to clean. This provides long-term savings on operating, repair, and maintenance costs. Overall, museum steel buildings offer a superior return on investment that provides long-term savings and benefits so you to put more money back into running your museum.

Why Steel Buildings for Museums?

Besides cost, one of the main reasons why our steel building kits are used for museums is because of the clear span and open design options. Because interiors are free of columns, supports, and other obstructions, we can offer wide-open floor plans that are entirely customizable. Our museum metal buildings are assembled with a heavy-duty primary framing system that can adequately support hanging heavy objects for space-saving displays and mezzanines for multi-level exhibits. Finally, the design flexibility allows you to add the various rooms you desire in your museum, including exhibit rooms and halls, lobby, gift shop, auditorium, lounges, common areas, and much more. All these beneficial features allow you to maximize your space to display your collections and exhibits.

Another reason people are using steel museum buildings is because they can easily be climate-controlled, which is important for storing and protecting collections of great value. We offer a multitude of interior and exterior options that help regulate the temperature and humidity levels to protect the valuable museum exhibits from degrading, including the prevention of fabrics and papers from yellowing. Our climate-controlled museum metal buildings are also dust, mildew, mold, and pest-resistant to offer the highest levels of protection and preservation for every type of museum. Finally, steel museum buildings offer excellent thermal efficiency to help save on energy costs.
