Metal Buildings


The engineering staff at Vector Structural Engineering has a wide range of structural diversity and expertise. With more than 12 years of experience in the metal building industry, we can meet any of your structural design needs for your next metal building project. The Metal Building Manufactures Association (MBMA), notes that “34% of the low-rise buildings built in the United States utilize metal building systems with a majority including architects and engineers of record.” Note that typically the metal building manufacturer is only responsible for the structural design of the metal building system. Items not provided by the manufacturer must be designed by “another” design professional. Other items typically not included by the metal building manufacturer include: building code and design load specifications, serviceability criteria, and construction related issues.

If you are looking for an Engineer of Record or other structural design services related to your next metal building project, we have the ability to meet your needs. We understand that speed and accuracy are important on any construction job, but especially for metal building projects.
