Metal Building Lean To

Architects /Engineers

More Information about Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings


Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings (PEMB) have been considered the solution for relatively simple structures such as small warehouses, storage buildings, agricultural buildings, vehicle maintenance facilities and similar structures that are box designed structures. A short visit to our Photo Gallery will quickly put an end to that misconception.

Today’s PEMB’s are “the building of choice” for all types of low rise and mid rise building projects currently being designed by Architects and Engineers nationwide and worldwide.

Project Complexity is no longer an issue. Our Buildings are the answer for aesthetically pleasing Office Complexes, Sports Arenas, Churches and Multi-Purpose Family Centers, Large Clear Span Hangar/Aviation Systems and Custom Buildings of “all” shapes and sizes. Traditional building designs are no match for our creative capabilities.


We have a  tremendous amount of resources available for on-line transmission to our design professionals:

  • Architectural/Engineering CD Rom
  • Product and Planning Manuals
  • Standard Material Specifications that can be customized to your requirement
  • LEEDS “Green Building” Qualification *Glossary of PEMB Terminology
  • Consultation Services with our Factory Engineers
  • Installation Manuals in English and Spanish
  • International Technical Assistance
  • Project Drawings in Imperial and Metric Dimensions
  • Nationwide/International G.C./Erector Network
  • Design Assistance
  • Preliminary Anchor Bolt Drawings and Column Reactions

These are but a few examples of our efforts to work with the Professionals of Record. Our Goal is to become one of your most valuable assets in guaranteeing the successful completion of each project.

We are available to serve your needs now and in the future.

Call us today or email us to get started with a PEMB solution.

 Dealership Opportunities

American Steel Buildings seeks Contractors, Erectors and Sales Organizations to partner with & add to our growing pre-engineered metal building (PEMB) network. American Steel will provide you with all of the necessary tools to compete and be successful in this rapidly growing segment of the construction industry.

The Majority, if not all, steel building corporations require an expensive dealership fee to get started. What does this dealership provide for you other than the outlay of several thousands of dollars? A computer software package that allows you to price buildings. This, in turn, requires you to create an entirely new and expensive segment to your company… An office staff that specializes in PEMB estimating (one or more of this staff are required to go to training at the manufacturers estimating schools at an Additional Fee! Oh… And, by the way, you are only allowed to quote the most basic of buildings… all complex buildings must be quoted by the factory.

A Sales Territory… this is a little misleading- a sales territory is given but is “non-exclusive” and only exclusive for advertising purposes. Anyone can sell a building in “your territory”. What additional support do you receive? How many sales leads have you received with your dealership? A basic marketing services and advertising planner is provided that encourages you to advertise in the yellow pages, to use direct mail, radio and billboards for further exposure requiring, yet again, Additional Fees!
