When you want spaciousness and durability, you need the Steel Commander Quonset Hut. This line of steel buildings provides maximum space by eliminating interior obstructions, while still providing increased strength over traditional I-beam buildings and conventional pole barns.  If you are looking for the best place to buy Steel Quonset Huts California look no further than Steel Commander Corp! The possibilities for the Quonset Hut are limited only by your imagination:

The Quonset Hut comes in many different styles and goes by several different names. Regional name variations for this round arch structure include Nissen huts, Romney huts, Jamesway huts, Daniel Houses, T-Rib quonset huts, Stran-Steel huts, or Cowin Huts. There are just as many interesting ways to spell this hut’s unique name including quanset, kwanza, kwansit, quansa, quonsat, and q-model.

During World War II, U.S. Navy officials realized they had a need for an all-purpose, lightweight building that could be shipped anywhere around the world to support troops. The Quonset design was modeled closely after the Nissen hut, which was used by the British during World War I.

The open, clear-span design of these huts enabled the Navy to maximize the buildings’ usable interior space. They also discovered that the corrugated arch is among of the strongest structural designs in the world. Because of these qualities, Quonset Huts™ were able to provide much-needed, secure shelter during the war.

In the late 1970s, Steel Commander engineered and designed a newer, stronger structure based on the historic Quonset Hut design.

Steel Commander evolved the Quonset into a new type of building that combines the architectural strength of the arch with 20th-century technology that allows it to be designed and engineered to handle all types of climates and conditions. The Quonset Hut was nicknamed the “q-model” to honor these structures’ historical significance.

Over the years, Steel Commander has continued to develop the original Quonset design and engineering to better serve the original goal of the hut: to provide an all-purpose prefabricated steel building or roofing structure that can be shipped anywhere in the world and constructed quickly and easily.
