As populations continue to boom in communities across North America both new & old, one thing that is becoming more and more necessary is public transit. As it can take years to build new transit systems due to the complex technology involved, there are ways that prefab steel buildings can assist in supporting the building process for even some of the required buildings. Steel buildings are flexible and versatile enough to be used in a plethora of ways, which is what makes it such a great material. They may not be appropriate for building underground subway tunnels and the like, but there are plenty of other things they can be used for to make the entire process that much easier. Transit is one of the most imperative parts of any community, and having one that can be up & running sooner rather than later to accommodate growing populations will always be important. That being said, these are just a few of the uses prefab steel buildings might have within the transportation industry that could offer important support.
One of the most important structures you’re going to need in terms of transportation is a place to keep transit vehicles stored when they aren’t in use. Steel’s durability makes it the perfect choice for this, as well as the lack of required maintenance. Often times, these storage areas double as repair centres, and being able to focus on fixing the vehicles themselves and not the structure will be of the utmost importance. These structures are resistant to most weather conditions and potentially damaging elements like fire and even pests. No matter how long you need to have specific vehicles stored, you can rest assured that it’s not going to negatively impact the integrity of the vehicle by being there.
Thankfully, our commercial steel buildings offer a variety of options in terms of size and layout, making it possible to go from vehicle storage to creating office space. Our steel structures offer you superior flexibility and an open-concept interior that gives you the freedom to create any type of space you need most. Depending on how large a particular transit system is, more offices will be needed which makes prefab buildings the perfect option since they are structures that will likely need to be put up rather quickly. Consider this method if there’s a need for multiple small to medium-sized offices in various parts of the city or along the system’s routes.
Stops and Stations
Not all stations or stops are created equally, but they can all have a similar start as a prefab steel building. Thanks to innovative technologies, our structures can be later customized to accommodate screens, walkways, counters, multiple entrances and exits and so much more. It’s important to remember they can also be fitted with various finishes that will allow it to blend in perfectly with the other structures that are a part of the transit system, typically on the modern side in terms of design.
