Site preparations are an important aspect of the beginning stages of construction for your metal building. Elite Building Concepts has the right professionals to customize your dirt work for the building layout on your job site. We will determine if the slope of the property requires select dirt to be hauled in or if dozer is needed to excavate the existing earth. Elite Building Concepts uses state of the art laser levels and transits to assess the job site for an accurate estimate on loads of fill and hours of leveling time required.

Elite Building Concepts always uses an engineered foundation for construction. Each project is different and requires an assessment of soil and geological location to install the correct foundation. Oklahoma has dry, sandy, rocky, and wet soils all over the state. Elite Building Concepts will determine if your specific location requires piers in the foundation or a simple engineered footing for construction. Elite Building Concepts uses fill sand compaction under each slab to minimize cracking in the concrete.

Elite Building Concepts installs a minimum 4” of concrete on every pour with a minimum PSI of 3500. Oklahoma weather can be tricky and it is important to order the correct mixture of concrete the day a pour is scheduled. There are many different additives that can be used at different times of the year depending on the weather the day of the pour. Elite Building Concepts stays on top of the weather forecasts to determine if any additives are necessary in the concrete mix with no added charge to the customer.

Elite Building Concepts will help you select a frame that is right for your building construction. We have several different styles to choose from according to building spans, building heights, overhead door locations, respected building codes, and cost. All of our structural frame components are pre-engineered with up to date building codes for your region. Let us use our 10+ years of experience to design your building so that it will withstand the harsh Oklahoma weather.

Elite Building Concepts also has several styles of sheet metal for your building’s exterior. Usually the panel profile is just a preference, but we can advise you of what is common for your building use. We will also send you color charts and samples of metal profiles for your selection. Elite Building Concepts always uses a minimum 26 gauge on sheet metal and trim with a 40 year paint warranty. The thickness of the panel is important to building construction due to the fact that this component is what locks the building together to withstand high winds and hail.

Elite Building Concepts has certified, licensed, and insured metal building installers. All of our welders are state certified. Our crews always use the proper equipment, tools, and knowledge for a safe construction work place. Our installation crews are educated on OSHA safety training and apply the correct safety methods when applicable. Elite Building Concepts is fully insured with general liability and workman’s compensation insurance, although we have never filed a claim to date. We take pride in our safety and it shows.
