How Was H.S. Williams the Best Pre-Engineered Metal Building Company for the Job?
- After securing a new contract for shelter constructions, VFP had an urgent and time-sensitive need for a larger manufacturing facility.
- As H.S. Williams Company handled numerous VFP expansions in the past, they knew they could rely on them to complete the construction project within the new client’s timeline.
- With careful planning and coordination, H.S. Williams Company completed the expansion around VFP’s production schedules, allowing them to keep shelters continuously moving out of the facility.

- Weather: Considering the projects tight timelines, key elements of construction were conducted in the middle of winter, but H.S. Williams’ planning and experience overcame all weather-related issues.
