Mounting Arch Steel Buildings on Top of Concrete Walls and Shipping Containers

Versatile Design

One of the greatest advantages to arch steel building construction over conventional methods is the versatility of the design. This flexibility allows a metal roof or building system to be attached on top of concrete walls or shipping containers. The benefits are added height and a wall system that can take plenty of wear and tear and extreme wind conditions.

Construction on Concrete Walls

The construction process is fast and simple. An arch metal building easily bolts together on the ground in 2’ sections which are then raised into place and bolted to the top of the wall. The attachment to a wall is facilitated by a special connector designed by Curvco specifically for this application. No cranes or heavy equipment are necessary during the erection of the building and you can use unskilled labor which helps keep the cost very low. You don’t need an expensive general contractor to erect Curvco roof systems on a wall.

Attachment to Shipping Containers

Shipping container architecture and design has become increasingly popular over the past decade with incredible structures being constructed with them around the world. They range in use from industrial storage solutions to luxury beach and lake houses. Combining a Quonset hut style or arch steel building roof with these shipping containers is a unique way to transform them into usable buildings. They are the most affordable solution to quickly cover construction equipment or for secured storage.

Quonset steel buildings attached to a shipping container offer tremendous versatility. They can be designed to be either permanent or temporary, as the panels can be disassembled and the structure can quickly deployed to other locations. Arch roof systems length can also be easily extended at any time by simply unbolting the endwall and adding arches.
