What components does a steel building consist of?

A question that we has been asked numerous times.  Components of a steel building never change only the location, whether in Georgia or elsewhere. We scrutinize every component before installation for defects or signs of weakness. The exact components used in a steel building depend on the design and engineered plans, which will also dictate the quantity of each. Before construction begins, the plans must be approved and municipal building code compliance verified.
