Currently, EcoSteel Building Systems has the technological ability and materials supply chain necessary to offer the benefits of pre-engineered and custom prefab steel homes to intelligent builders and home owners. These expertise are not simply developed as a business model as several prefab steel home builders have attempted in futility, they’re developed overtime through industry experience.
As an industry leader supplying steel homes and buildings for nearly 12 years, EcoSteel’s ancestral species is Northern Steel International. Known for offering solutions more creative than typical steel building suppliers, and an early adopter of green and eco-friendly construction methods and materials, Northern Steel International provides cutting edge pre-engineering technology to our hundreds of clients throughout the United States, Mexico, Ireland, Canada and the Caribbean. Toyota, American Airlines, PGA of America, Waste Management, AAMCO and many others have taken advantage of Northern Steel’s custom and holistic approach to prefabricated steel buildings.
While we could have been content to continue to offer our progressive approach to commercial and industrial construction, EcoSteel saw a need for a viable option for prefab design and construction in the residential sector. The past decade has seen a number of prefab and modular steel homes providers, most intent on capitalizing on a consumer driven desire for “green” products and services. EcoSteel homes seek to provide an actual solution. Unfortunately, most of these companies attempting to sell the concept of prefabrication incurred huge start up costs by creating their own factories, their own components and accessories, and their own attempt at “space age” and organic materials. Large overhead costs were forced upon consumers. In hopes of lowering cost, these companies sought to mass produce homes by offering pre-created floor plans, or at best, modules that could be cobbled together in different ways in hopes that the consumer would feel they had custom options. Many modular and prefab steel home providers have gone extinct, bankrupt.
EcoSteel’s solution is simple. There is already an eco-friendly and sustainable commodity readily available to consumers in the form of steel. And we allow our clients to design their steel home or structure with their architect instead of forcing some other design sensibility. Steel construction has been in existence for over 50 years, and extremely thermally efficient walls and roofs have existed nearly as long in the commercial refrigeration industry. Steel contains a minimum of 76% recycled content, and can forever be recycled. These components and construction methods have been developed to survive natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, and organically resist common problems homeowners face like fire, flood, pests (termites, mice, etc.), mold, etc. EcoSteel simply adapts these perfected design and construction methods for residential use, steel homes and multifamily structures. We continue to utilize new technologies to truly allow our clients to benefit from prefabrication.
In a deceptive marketplace where “green” is so marketable, and speed, quality and durability take a back seat to cheap and disposable structures, EcoSteel offers you an intelligent and responsible alternative.
