Steel Nation, Inc. (dba Steel Nation Steel Buildings) is a proud Washington, Pennsylvania based Corporation working primarily in the Energy Sector of North America. Originally founded to design/build/turn-key large scale coal prep plants, Steel Nation has evolved into the leading design/builder of natural gas compressor stations, primarily mid-stream but also transmission and storage compression facilities throughout the Marcellus, Utica and other American shale plays. Since 2005, they have over 240 Compressors under roof and have never had a single unit overheat or shut down due to high temperatures.

Mark Caskey, Steel Nation’s President, realized early on that these stations needed to be built right, not just for the industry, but also for the community, who demand a peaceful and quiet existence throughout these new shale plays. Caskey explains: “We stepped in and introduced ways to make everyone happy. For the industry we are the only compressor station builder that has never experienced an over-heat. This is due to Steel Nation’s proprietary heat removal designs and implementations. For the neighborhoods, schools, churches and other businesses near the stations, no one makes these facilities quieter. We build the SAFEST, COOLEST and SUPER QUIET Custom Engineered buildings for all aspects of the Energy Industry.”

Steel Nation uses Auto-CAD design and engineering for every one of their buildings. For complicated projects involving processing equipment and multiple structures, the sharing of Auto-CAD drawings enables engineers and architects to “overlay” the steel building over and around the processing equipment to ensure clearances are not interfering with the structures. From full-color architectural renderings, anchor bolt plans and the sharing of .DWG and .DXF Auto-CAD files, Steel Nation is leading the industry in utilizing new technologies to design, deliver and erect projects that are 100% correct from the start.
