ExpressLine Structures

Federal Steel Systems recognizes that most buildings are simple “box” structures. We developed the “ExpressLine Structures” to support our customer’s needs. Federal Steel Systems’ “ExpressLine Structures” is a building line that is designed to save you time and money without sacrificing structural quality or standard options and features. Other companies have special building lines that claim to save money, but they typically take the most essential elements of the pre-engineered steel building concept away.

With our “ExpressLine Structures” we can provide permit and anchor bolt drawings as fast as a week after receiving your order. Upon request, Federal Steel Systems can include your foundation plan, which will save you time and money compared to hiring a local structural engineer.

If you have a special delivery request, just ask one of our Building Specialists and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
