Virtually Unlimited Building Design Options
Steel buildings provide a lot of benefits over wood and other traditional building materials. With unlimited size and shape options, we can deliver the ideal space to support your business goals and processes.
Steel framing can be used to support much larger structures without requiring support beams, allowing much greater uninterrupted floor space and vertical height than with other building materials.
Whether you need a lot of height, a unique shape, or an impressive curved structure, we can accomplish your vision with steel building materials. We can also assist with interior finishing, leaving you with a completely finished facility that is move-in ready.
Exterior finishing for metal buildings has come a long way. Instead of picking from a few colors of corrugated steel panels, you can get virtually any exterior styling you desire, from stucco to brickwork. This allows us to provide better cohesion for additions while still maintaining all of the desirable attributes a steel building provides, from environmental friendliness to cost efficiency.
Whatever your design ideas, Direct Steel and Construction considers the best possible building materials and processes for your unique Great Lakes, IL project. Our general contractors are focused on making your vision a reality, and promote your ideas and support your goals every step of the way.

It all starts with a discussion about your facility needs, business operations, workflow and processes, and budget to help determine what type of structure will best suit you.
Our team works with you directly throughout the entire process, assisting with budget analysis, preliminary scheduling, scope clarification, and on-site supervision. This hands-on approach allows us to deliver a successful outcome for your construction project.
