Nucor Building Systems is a leading manufacturer of metal building systems for many industries, including industrial, commercial, warehouse, community, and agricultural markets. The Utah steel metal building division of Nucor Building Systems serves Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. With only four full-service manufacturing plants nationwide, Nucor’s new Engineered Building Systems Manufacturing Plant in Brigham City, Utah, is a critical business asset. Nucor chose Big-D to construct it.
Big-D constructed two pre-engineered metal buildings supplied and manufactured by the owner on a 54-acre site. The first building was a 20,000 square-foot office building and the second building was a 230,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. The second building includes receiving bays that accommodate both rail and truck shipments. This facility employs approximately 200 people and produces steel framing, sheeting, bar joists, and trim components for pre-engineered metal buildings. Its steel processing capacity is approximately 45,000 tons per year.
