Even if you only need to order a few metal building components, you can feel safe knowing you will get exactly what you need. Our expertise can save both time & money.
Not Your Typical Metal Building Contractor
Metal Buildings are a highly specialized field. Many people make the mistake of assuming all contractors or suppliers are the same. JB STEEL™ prides itself on designing & delivering the highest quality metal buildings. Our partnership with Metallic Building Company & NCI Group began in 1997 & has continued to flourish. During that time we have received numerous Metallic awards for excellence & merit, culminating in 2015 when we were awarded Metallic Builder of the Year. We are the only Oregon based company to have ever received this prestigious award. We are recognized for our solid reputation in innovation and creativity, and for our continued success at providing metal building solutions for the seemingly impossible projects.
JB STEEL is a Self-Performing General Contractor
Traditionally, most general contractors will hire subcontractors to perform a majority of the work instead of performing it themselves. When you work with JB Steel, we have our own employed crews who perform the major scopes of work which include the following:
- Civil construction: excavation, dirt hauling, rock import, grading, utilities, sewer, storm piping, fire suppression piping, etc.
- Structural Concrete & Tilt-ups
- Structural Steel
- Pre-Engineered Metal Buildings
What are the benefits of a self-performing general contractor?
We control the critical path
Our crews perform these large scopes of work that define the critical path of a project schedule. Conversely, other general contractors who rely on the availability of various subcontractors to schedule their projects, it puts JB Steel ahead of the game when it comes to finishing jobs on time.
We control cost
JB STEEL is a vertically integrated company. The majority of the work on our jobs, ranging from design professionals to ironworkers, is performed by highly qualified JB STEEL employees. This advantage allows us to control cost variables that other general contractors cannot. Furthermore, we value our deep rooted and trusted relationships with material suppliers, engineers, and finish trades in the areas we work which enhances our ability to meet our customer’s budgets.
We control quality
We focus on building crews that are experienced, knowledgeable, and safety conscious. This defines our ability to perform work at the highest level of quality our customers demand. Our 65+ years of experience speaks for itself.
"JB STEEL designed and built our new facility in Medford, Oregon seamlessly and met our timeline. They were great to work with every step of the way; from guiding us through frustrating permitting issues to implementing our requested mid-project design changes and finally keeping up with consistent communication to ensure we were updated on the progress of the job. All of their team members were the upmost professionals to work with and always provided needed information to us that ensured an on-time project completion. We appreciate their hard work and definitely look forward to working with them again!"
"JB STEEL™ recently designed and constructed a beautiful new building for our property and were an absolute pleasure to work with. They understood our unique vision and executed it perfectly, met our standards of quality, and did it on all a very tight timeline."
"We make a lot of changes and we need them to be on our team, not opposing each other but walk through it together to figure out a solution. We put them through the wringer and they delivered. We re-engineered two or three times; it was a long ways from home, and they made it happen on several levels."
Advantages of Metal Buildings Vs. Wood Buildings
Metal buildings are becoming an increasingly popular choice for commercial and industrial applications. There are many reasons for this.
Metal buildings are made from structural steel, which is one of the strongest materials available. Because of this, you are able to produce large open areas with fewer verticle supports throughout. This is called "Clear Span" construction.
Shorter Build Time
Metal buildings tend to have a much shorter build time than wood buildings of the same size. This is because there are fewer materials and faster building methods than with wood construction.
Because of the clear spans we talked about above, and the fact they take less material to build, metal buildings can be much more cost-effective than wood when it comes to larger industrial and commercial projects. Metal buildings normally start to become more cost-effective at spans of 30ft and above

Education is Key
Part of our mission is to educate customers so they can make the best decisions. This is one area where we set ourselves apart from other companies. It is our goal to ensure you are getting exactly what you need. Too often a customer makes a decision on a price alone, but is not aware of what they have just purchased. The metal building market is flooded with “cheap” options guaranteeing the “lowest prices online”. This fast buy now mentality misleads customers into believing they are making a prudent cost-efficient choice. Remember that the material cost is only a small portion of any project. Purchasing a building before you have a complete plan for permits, foundation, and installation can be costly in many different ways. A little education goes a long way. A lot of education leads to real success.
