Nucor Building Systems is owned by Nucor Corporation, a Fortune 500 Company that produces steel and steel products, and is well known for its ability to manufacture high quality products at very competitive prices.
These stellar attributes apply equally to Nucor Building Systems (NBS).
As a complete building systems manufacturing company, NBS is one of the most flexible and diverse manufacturers in operation today.
The Nucor CFR Roof System is a functional roof specifically designed for low slopes.
Kemp Construction is a perennial award-winning installer of Nucor Building systems, in part because of the optimized flexibility of this metal building product.
The Nucor CFR Roof System has been extensively tested to ensure the highest level of performance for weather tightness, as well as, structural integrity.
However, Nucor Building Systems offers a hand-operated crimpingtool for seaming, as well as, seaming machine to achieve the Nucor Vise Lock installation option.
In other words, as a builder, Kemp Construction gets to chose which application is most appropriate.
Nucor Roll Lock™, Nucor Vice Lock™, and Nucor Vise Lock 360™ have all been tested to ensure maximum results.
Take a look at the Nucor CFR System Performance Datasheet found here.
Reason #3: Non-Handed System
Nucor CFR System is designed to allow the installer [hopefully you select Kemp Construction], to erect the metal roofing system in either direction.
This provides flexibility to choose the most efficient starting points on the roof.
This save you both time and money.
Additionally, in most cases the roof is installer has the option to either install either the roof or the wall system first.
Reason #4: Flexible Seaming Options
I lightly mentioned this earlier.
The roof can be completely installed without the use of electric seaming machines. An electric machine is available for use after roof installation when required due to high uplift conditions or specified criteria.
However, the seamer does not have to be run as the panels are installed.
In all cases the roof is installed and hand crimped leaving the electric seaming to be accomplished safely and efficiently as one of the last steps of construction.
Reason # 5 : Wide Range of Insulation Options
According to the Nucor Building System website,
The Nucor CFR Roof System is designed to work with a variety of insulation types including fiberglass batts, basic rigid board, and liner decking rigid board.
This offers the builder and owner flexibility when choosing the best system to meet the functional needs of the building.
It is recommended that some type of insulation be used with all CFR metal roof systems to prevent wind flutter or damage due to the effects of condensation.
Reason #6: Fasteners Outside The Building
At the eave and rigid locations, fasteners are uniquely placed outside the building envelop, greatly reducing the chance for water penetration into the roof system.
Reason #7: Patented Panel Splice Detail
Panel splices have been designed with a patented system to occur away from the purlin or joist so that normal tolerance found in construction will not hinder installation of the Nucor CFR System.
The continuous end-lap design provides continuity, as well as, reduced handling of panels during installation.
Reason #8: Factor Dimpled and Notched
Nucor CFR Roof System panels are factory dimpled and notched to aid the installer in providing your metal building project with a weather tight fit.
Dimples indicate fastener placement at the end lap and aid against fastener “walking”.
Reason #9: Solid Seam Design
The metal roofing system seam profile is intentionally “stout” to provide flexibility in the field, as well as, a positive lock by the electric seamer, when the seamer is required.
This all but eliminates the possibility of the seamer malfunctioning and damaging the seam as can occur with older “Pittsburgh-style” seams.
Hopefully, I have helped you see why I believe Nucor CFR Roof System is the best.

Let’s say you completed a job for a government agency. As most bids, you are paid after the work is done. What if you put in the paperwork to get paid, but your request was denied? The work of an Engineer Record may be a confusing one, which is why this blog post will explain what one is and if you need one or not.
What is an Engineer Record?
Well, he has a big job to ensure that all components of the job are done correctly. Unless he is actually hired to do the engineering, that is not his main focus. His main focus is making sure everything is up to code and running smoothly—so to speak. You can equate the Engineer Record to getting a second opinion on something. He runs through everything to ensure safety, quality, and much more.
Do you need one for your project?
Not every answer to a question like this is simple. If you have a very simple project that doesn’t have a lot of special trades, then you will be okay without hiring an EOR. However, the more complicated the project, the more an EOR (engineer record) will come in handy. A complex project is when an EOR can really come in handy.
How to hire an EOR?
The hiring can be the tricky part of getting an Engineer Record on board. The only person that should hire the EOR is the GC himself. This helps ensure that there are no communication barriers. He/she knows they hired the EOR, so everything can run smoothly from start to finish. The job of the EOR is to ensure that every component of the project is up to code and done right. Of course, everything should be running smoothly inside the building as well.
Check references like it are going out of style.
Save yourself the heartache and headache by making sure you check references on the person you are hiring as the Engineer Record. Make sure the EOR that is hired is in good standing with the profession, has high ratings, and comes with great references. This may take some time, but it is well worth it in the end.
With all of this in mind, perhaps the next project you run can be a pleasant one. The hardest part will be deciding if your project is elaborate enough to hire an EOR.
Startup companies face unique challenges and typically need options that are flexible and can adapt to a company that will inevitably change as well. Here are just a few reasons commercial steel buildings are perfect for startups.
1 & 2) Privacy & Ownership
Often times with commercial space, newer companies rent office space from other owners because they don’t have the funds right away to build their own facilities. As a business grows, they’ll hire more people and just generally need more space and privacy. Prefab steel buildings are a great option when weighed against leasing or renting for long periods of time.
Startup companies may or may not have to funds in the early stages to build their own offices, but when they eventually reach that stage it will still be important to ensure the costs are as reasonable as possible.
Particularly if a business only needs a small – but separate – space, steel buildings offer a great alternative to traditionally built structures.
Think of the cost as an investment into your company that will more than pay for itself. Renting a quality location can be expensive, unless it is a incubator / cooperative office set-up and it will never be customized to your particular standards or needs.
Conversely, building your own entire office space with traditional building methods can prove nearly impossible, not to mention the high amount of potential waste production and costs of waste removal.
4 & 5) Ease & Speed Of Construction
In addition to its cost effectiveness, prefab buildings are simple enough to put together that they can be constructed in a number of weeks instead of months.
This bodes well for startup companies who, depending on the market and niche, can progress very quickly and experience a boom in sales, production, staffing or other development.
Prefab steel buildings are perfect in accommodating that type of rapid movement, having the ability to be finished in a short span of time to house a growing company.
6) Environmentally Friendly
More than ever, startups are starting to be environmentally conscious regardless of industry.
As environmental issues with wasted resources and energy continue to come to the forefront, more startups are beginning to place greater importance on offices that use energy in smarter ways than before. With virtually waste-free construction, steel prefab buildings already have an advantage in this area.
Steel prefab gives you more flexibility in terms of where your offices, branches or headquarters are located.
Instead of renting, leasing or purchasing an existing structure that may not only be outside of your budget but also far outside your preferred location.
With prefab steel structures, long commutes or uprooting your business to a brand new city may be a thing of the past.
The interiors can be insulated and finished in a wide variety of ways and can easily transform into a space that is truly reflective of the company, branding and personal tastes.
Here are a few things to consider when deciding on a pre-fab metal building:
What is the main purpose of the commercial metal buildings you are considering?
Automotive Repair Buildings
Stations and Terminals
Steel Crane Buildings
What are the dimensions of your prospective commercial steel structure?
Weight = End Wall
Length = Side Wall
Height = Eave
What type of shape would you like you Commercial Metal Buildings to be?
In an effort to not throw the contractor under the bus for underestimating the original cost of the pre-engineered metal building the presidnet of the college took responsibility for the funding short fall.

How to prevent underestimating metal building projects.
As such we are not only excellent at assessing the cost of a project, we are support and double checked by Nucor Build Systems itself prior to issuing a quote.
While we would love to serve you, we only take on projects 90 miles from Nappanee, Indiana.
That said, if you want to avoid turning perfect good metal building components out of a scrap yards, we highly recommend you work with an experiences metal building who is supported but the manufacturer of the components that make up the structure.
SkyWest Airlines, which flies out of all major Idaho airports, will add an airplane maintenance facility at an existing Jackson Jet Center hangar at the Boise Airport and will decide by the end of the summer whether to add a larger facility in Boise.
SkyWest, headquartered in St. George, Utah, is a leading air service provider, and partner to some of the world’s largest network carriers including United Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways, American Airlines and Alaska Airlines.
With a fleet of 346 aircraft, and a team of more than 10,500 aviation professionals, SkyWest operates approximately 1,900 flights each day to nearly 200 destinations throughout North America.
In September of 2014, SkyWest announced its intention to build a new aircraft maintenance facility at the municipally-owned Boise Airport in Boise, Idaho.
The $20 million project, which qualified for a $1.3 million Tax Reimbursement Incentive from the state of Idaho, consists of 100,000 sq. ft. of hangar space with 35,000 sq. ft. of office space.
Big D Builders, an Authorized Nucor Builder, worked closely with the City of Boise and SkyWest to assess customer needs and design a solution that meets expectations.
When the project is fully staffed, the economic impact to the state of Idaho will include new total wages in excess of $5.4 million a year and new sales and income tax revenues for the state of approximately $350,000 a year. The projected average annual wage is $52,000, well above the average in Ada County.
With a required clear span of nearly 400′, Nucor’s TrussFrame open web rafter system was a perfect fit for the SkyWest project.
Production began in July of 2014 at Nucor Building Systems’ Utah division.
The hangar boasts a clear span width of 362′ 4″ – the largest span in the Pacific Northwest region in a pre-engineered metal building – and is 365′ in depth. Its TrussFrame rafters, fabricated by Vulcraft, are 15′ deep, allowing for integrated mechanical, electrical, and sprinkler systems, as well as unimpeded overhead clearance of 62′.
The solid web columns supporting the TrussFrame rafter system are an imposing 10′ in depth.
Nucor Building Systems worked with hangar door manufacturer Norco to integrate their product seamlessly with the Nucor building, and meet the needs of the customer.
The building’s exterior is finished with Nucor’s CFR™ standing seam roof panels, and Nucor Reverse Classic™ wall panels.
In all, 1100 tons of Nucor steel went into the fabrication and construction of the SkyWest Hangar at Boise Airport.
The entire building project took less than sixteen months from concept to completion.
…In just 16 months, this project went from idea to ribbon cutting and I couldn’t be more proud of the partners who worked to pull it together. Bringing high paying jobs like those at this facility is one way we are working to make Boise the most livable city in the country.
Those in attendance at the opening included SkyWest’s Operations Manager, Mayor David Bieter of Boise, and Idaho Governor Butch Otter.
Marisa Snow, SkyWest Airport Director wrote on the Boise Airport website — “McAlvain Construction broke ground last October, completing the project in less than a year. The hangar is the largest pre-manufactured clear-span metal building in the Pacific Northwest.”
McAlvin touted the same on its website: “Earlier in 2014, SkyWest Airlines issued an RFQ to design/build contractors for its new Aircraft Maintenance Hangar to be constructed here in Boise, Idaho.” …
Similar to Kemp Construction’s approach, and for that matter every authorized Nucor Building System contractor — McAlvin goes on, … “During the proposal stage of this design/build project, a preliminary estimate was created based on a single sketch of a floor plan. With a multiple array of projects in McAlvain’s past experience, we were able to successfully and confidently present a realistic budget with little more than a concept. With the design phase at its end, we have proven this original budget was realistic and have been able to add scope and value engineering opportunities.”
The project has garnered some local media. The awesome custom Nucor Building System frame facility has been featured by Boise Weekly and discuss SkyScraper Forum.
“We’re excited to have a new, state-of-the-art facility in Boise to help us keep our fleet in top condition,” said Bill Dykes, SkyWest’s Vice President of Maintenance.
