Hybrid Buildings

Innovative Hybrid Buildings & Techniques

Hybrid buildings in construction combine the benefits of conventional steel with traditional pre-engineered building systems. The economical alternative to design, engineer, supply and erect hybrid structures gives the Metal Building Group a leading advantage in the metal construction industry.

Key Components

  1. A standing seam metal roof (SSR) or metal wall system
  2. Cold rolled steel wall girts and roof purlins
  3. Conventional steel-laced columns
  4. Pre-engineered steel framing system on top of or adding to conventional steel columns and structures

Hybrid Planning Considerations

  • Support for heavy overhead cranes
  • Stringent deflection limitations
  • Large equipment support
  • High building heights and large spans
  • Harsh environmental conditions
  • Other operational specifics and needs

Hybrid Advantages
