When deciding to build a new facility, businesses often find themselves faced with the challenge of balancing functionality, cost-effectiveness, and aesthetic appeal. At Empire Building Construction, we understand the importance of providing customizable building solutions that meet the unique needs of each client while delivering on quality, efficiency, and value. With our expertise in pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMBs), we can offer your business the flexibility to create a structure tailored to your specific requirements.


The first step in designing a building is making sure it works for your business’s needs. PEMBs can cater to almost any business function, including retail storefronts, event centers, manufacturing facilities, schools, and much more.

Autoland - Sioux Falls, SD

We used a PEMB to design and build a visually appealing sales floor and shop for this project. A variety of Varco Pruden products were used including the gable roof entrances, roof structure, columns, and stud-framed walls, which were designed to accommodate the large amounts of glass and EIFS exterior finish.

We designed this over 148,000 square foot metal building with primarily dirt floors and no interior columns. It’s used as an equestrian and livestock event center at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds, and it can hold up to 5,000 people. This building was also a Varco Pruden Hall of Fame Winner in 2024.


One of the key advantages of pre-engineered metal buildings is their ability to accommodate buildings of any size, from small retail storefronts to large industrial warehouses. With our advanced design and engineering capabilities, we can tailor the dimensions and layout of the building to optimize space utilization and functionality, ensuring that every square foot serves a purpose and maximizes operational efficiency.

These two buildings total over 500,000 square feet. As the largest metal building erector in the area, Empire is uniquely qualified to erect buildings of this scale more quickly and efficiently than our competition. This building was recognized for excellence and innovation in the 2020 SDRMCA Awards.

This 323,805 square foot building consists of both warehouse and office space. A Varco Pruden metal building with precast walls, this structure is another great example of the endless building options available with the use of PEMBs.


Pre-engineered metal buildings have revolutionized the construction industry with their efficiency, durability, and cost-effectiveness. But perhaps the most compelling feature of PEMB systems is their flexibility and versatility. With a wide range of customizable options available, businesses have the freedom to design and construct buildings that not only meet their functional needs but also reflect their unique brand identity and aesthetic preferences. From sleek and modern office spaces to expansive warehouse facilities, the design possibilities with pre-engineered metal buildings are virtually limitless.

Empire supplied and erected the PEMB for this stunning project, which showcases the impressive versatility and complexity you can get out of a metal building. Several different exterior finishes were used on this building, including horizontal insulated metal panels, formed metal panels, metal composite panels, glass wall systems, and an SSR System. This build was a Varco Pruden Hall of Fame Winner in 2019.
