Heavy Structure Solutions

Butler® Heavy Structures™ capabilities provide inspired solutions for complex structures. We integrate structural design with Butler pre-engineered metal building systems, giving you the best value of strength and economy.

Butler Heavy Structures are a fit for nearly every industry.

While the customer base of Butler Heavy Structures crosses nearly every industry, the types of projects we execute generally fall into one of three broad categories:

  • Large clearspan structures such as sports facilities and aircraft hangars
  • Heavy industrial complexes such as steel mills, power generation, and heavy manufacturing plants
  • Highly architectural structures such as entertainment venues

Project Management Expertise

Conceptual Design & Estimating

To determine the lowest overall cost, you must also consider the cost of the foundation and the erection of the structure. Early involvement is the key to gaining the most value for your project.

Featured Butler Heavy Structures Projects

Jacksonville Naval Air Station

This aircraft hangar is the largest in the world for the US Navy. To meet the Navy’s demand for multiple openings for various aircraft, clear spans of 455' and 428' were necessary at the front of the hangar. To achieve these record-setting clear spans, Butler Heavy Structures utilized three-story-tall box trusses.
