Building and Construction

aluminum components for construction

The ability to build upwards in dense urban environments demands materials that are lightweight without sacrificing durability. It’s for this reason that aluminum has become the metal of choice in skyscrapers and other large construction projects. Aluminum can be found in iconic structures such as the Empire State Building, though its exceptional economy makes it a great option for practically any construction and location.

Building With Aluminum

Wondering why you should consider aluminum for your next residential or commercial construction project? Aluminum is:

  • Lightweight and strong: Aluminum is one of the rare construction materials that doesn’t sacrifice durability for weight. Select high-strength aluminum alloys are frequently used for structural beams or for supporting heavy window panels to maximize natural light.
  • Corrosion resistant: Aluminum is naturally corrosion resistant and can be used in outdoor applications with little additional processing. This makes it a versatile choice that can be painted or finished to meet any branding or design requirements without worrying about long-term durability.
  • Eco-friendly: Because aluminum can be melted and reused with no loss in quality, it is one of the most eco-friendly building materials available today. Producing and processing it is extremely energy efficient. As a result, the use of aluminum can help your building qualify for LEED and other certifications.
  • Cost-effective: Aluminum’s infinite recyclability and reduced energy production requirements aren’t just good for the environment — they’re also good for your bottom line. To keep costs down while ensuring a quality product, Pennex’s aluminum construction materials are made with a minimum 70% recycled materials. Contact our office to request a quote today.
