Speed and Efficiency

systems – Pre-engineered steel building systems from Butler are widely regarded as the most efficient and effective construction method in the low-rise construction marketplace. Choosing a design-build construction approach can add to the savings.

Design Driven Construction

Conventional or hybrid building designs come in any shape or size to meet the demands for any project. Your entire project can be designed, engineered, and manufactured by Butler to provide unlimited flexibility to fit your design needs. 

Sustainable Steel

Steel is one of the most sustainable construction methods available for large metal buildings in a variety of markets.  Your steel building will be built using recycled steel, which can be recycled again at the end of its useful life.

Eliminate Roof Issues

The MR-24® Roof System is the most specified standing-seam roof system on the market, with more than 2 billion square feet installed worldwide.  The durable yet flexible MR-24® roof system has unique design features that together accommodate roof movement under temperature fluctuations. This mobility prevents stress at the clips, fasteners, and panel splice that could otherwise make the building vulnerable to leaks and wind damage. 

Save Energy

Reduce your total cost of ownership with tested assemblies from Butler.  Butler’s “Guarded Hot Box” provides in-place performance of U-Factors for roof, wall, and insulation system assemblies.  You can easily build Com-Check reports to meet the most stringent energy codes.

Performance. Protection. Possibilities

Butler roofing and re-roofing systems provide a complete solution to meet the most critical concerns of architects, builders, and building owners.  Our Retrofit Roof systems provide metal-over-metal or slope build-up options that are fully engineered to meet the requirements of the most stringent performance standards, while minimizing disruption to your facility’s daily operations.

How to Keep Your Lifetime Costs Low 

Studies have shown that only 10% of a building’s lifetime cost is in the initial construction budget. 90% of the total cost of building ownership is in the operating budget to pay for lighting, heating, cooling, and maintenance. Considering the impact of operating costs in the pre-construction stage allows you to focus on the total building operating cost.
