Buildings North America is a leader in engineered building solutions. With more than 2 ,200 employees, it services the low-rise non-residential construction needs of customers in North America. This business also includes the BlueScope Properties Group, which develops industrial properties, predominantly warehouses and distribution centres.
Buildings North America partners with BlueScope's customers, many of them global brands and Fortune 500 companies such as Costco, to deliver the buildings they need, wherever they are doing business, by leveraging BlueScope's network of manufacturing facilities and sales offices. In this way, BlueScope has a unique proposition to design, manufacture and construct buildings for clients who want to standardise construction across their operations.
Our customers, working with our program account team, are able to realise significant savings in the total cost of their buildings, and in an industry where time is money, these customers are benefiting from significant reductions in their construction schedules. As well, the Company's innovative building designs and engineering systems can reduce the building weight per square metre, which also results in substantial cost savings for clients.
In addition to a range of custom engineered steel buildings, such as factories, bulk warehouses and stores, Buildings North America manufactures and markets framing and cladding systems and steel building components. Its Butler® and Varco Pruden® brands are highly recognised in the industry.
