Steel Gas and Oil Buildings

Designing a building that will undergo oil and gas or energy industry use involves special considerations, and Sunward Steel has a long history of supplying hard-wearing, explosion-resistant steel building solutions for those who work in the oilfield. Rugged and easily erected, steel oil and gas buildings deliver the strength, security and safety features the industry demands, giving individuals and businesses an economical, sustainable and safer alternative to traditional wood or fabric construction.

Benefits of Steel Buildings For The Oil and Gas Industry

Sound Abatement
Building walls and roof can be designed with sound board material to meet noise ordinance requirements particularly when located near residential and commercial areas.

Fire Resistance
Steel is inherently noncombustible and fire-resistant, whereas wood framed buildings are entirely combustible.

Explosion Resistance
Sunward Steel has supplied numerous explosion-resistant metal buildings to those in the oil and gas industry providing safety for workers while helping business owners preserve and protect valuable assets.

The energy industry is constantly in flux but a pre-engineered steel building is both easily erectable and easily expandable, should the need present itself to change its size.

Roof Accessibility
Optional removable roof hatches can be supplied to access equipment or machinery. Our unique design not only ensures a water tight condition but also minimizes the amount of material and time required to be remove the hatch.

Crane Design
Top-running or underhung cranes have been used in numerous Sunward Steel buildings to facilitate maintenance of equipment or machinery.

Sunward Steel can provide an array of options to meet ventilation requirements ranging from ridge vents, mechanical roof top units, louvers and exhaust fans.
