Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings


Why Building With Butler® Is Better for Our Clients

Since 1950, we have built hundreds of structures—large and small—for manufacturers, commercial businesses, assisted living facilities, schools, retail establishments and churches throughout Northeast Wisconsin. And, because we tend to do more than one job for a client, we have the opportunity to see how well these buildings weather time, heavy use and our Wisconsin climate.

ACE Building Service is your local Butler Builder

That’s why in 1973, we made the decision to partner with Butler Manufacturing™ by joining the largest network of construction professionals in the world to provide our clients with the best steel buildings in the industry. We see many advantages to building pre-engineered steel structures, notwithstanding the unmatched durability and affordability that Butler Buildings offer. Throughout every stage of construction and over the entire lifetime of the building, our clients enjoy time- and money-saving solutions by using our design-build services paired with the Butler Building System.

The Top 6 Benefits of the Butler Building System

1. Design Flexibility

A Butler Building System offers virtually unlimited flexibility with regard to your building design—from distinctive exterior aesthetic options to functional interior configurations. You can also choose a hybrid solution that combines conventional building materials with the efficiencies of systems construction.

• Rigid frame design facilitates virtually any building size and shape

• Exterior options include stucco, brick, and glass, in addition to Butler’s selection of metal wall panel systems

• Clearspan and longbay structural systems create large areas of uninterrupted space to maximize productivity

• Flexibility to install the weathertight MR-24® roof system, the industry’s finest standing-seam roof system with over 40 years of proven in-place performance

2. Reduced Construction Time

One of the greatest advantages is the ability to reduce your construction schedule. In fact, using a Butler Building System has been shown to reduce construction times by up to 30% versus conventional building methods.

• All Butler structural steel is precision engineered using state-of-the-art computer modeling to facilitate faster assembly in the field

• A.C.E. Building Service’s design-build delivery system eliminates third parties to streamline construction and further condense construction schedules

• Regionally located manufacturing plants allow for shorter shipping distances and faster delivery times

3. Expansion Flexibility

A Butler Building System can meet your needs today as well as your company’s future needs. A Butler building can easily be expanded in width, length and height by adding additional bays, or new structures to the end walls.

4. Low Maintenance

Steel buildings resist damage from high winds, heavy rains, termites, ants, lightning and mold better than conventional building materials. Plus, steel structures and roofs are easier to maintain than wood-frame and concrete structures.

5. Energy Efficiency

The demand for products and systems that can reduce energy consumption is greater today than ever before. Butler offers a range of energy-efficient roof and wall systems that can achieve a thermal efficiency rating of R-40 or more if required.

6. Sustainability

All Butler buildings contain up to 74% recycled steel and all Butler buildings are also designed to be easily disassembled and reused or recycled.

Recycled Steel

Steel is the most recycled material on earth, and recycled steel is an essential ingredient used in Butler and BlueScope Steel’s integrated steelmaking processes. The electric arc furnace process used at the North Star BlueScope Steel plant in the United States is more environmentally friendly than basic oxygen furnaces—enabling the use of 75%–100% recycled steel.

FACT: All Butler buildings contain up to 74% recycled steel and all Butler buildings are also designed to be easily disassembled and reused or recycled.
