AWS not only provides the required engineering for the pre-engineered metal building but also foundations. AWS designs a steel/metal building and produces the steel with its own panel and trim rolling machines. All of the steel buildings by AWS are constructed with the highest quality materials. Not just that, while many steel building suppliers request a change order to cover “steel price increases,” even after they take the deposit, AWS provides its clients with a price guarantee. “One of the things that we do for our customers, which is in our contract in black and white, is a price guarantee. As long as the customer does not change anything on the building after purchasing it, there is a price guarantee. We have gained so many new customers over the past year due to this one item in its contract that protects them,” highlights Michael Vivian, Executive Director for International Business Development at AWS.
AWS employs in-house erecting crews that are all sitespecific trained craftsmen, as well as its own foundation crews that ensure high quality and value. With the ability to supply a pre-engineered metal building (PEMB), along with a dedicated crew that is not subcontracted, AWS is able to provide highquality work to the end user. This method allows AWS to deliver its services to some of the largest general contractors in the country. AWS added these crews due to its client base that is located within the Chem-Plant world of Texas and Louisiana. These customers require highly trained individuals that are not always available via subcontractors.
“Many times, our customers were unable to find a contractor or provider that would be able to sell them a building and have it installed for them—which is what most banks require, one general contractor for the loan process.

AWS has offices in four of the major cities of Texas— Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas. AWS is currently working on expanding outside of Texas, as well as opening up locations around the State of Texas that would allow customers to come and pick up components, such as roof, wall panels, and miscellaneous steel items for their projects. Many great things are in the pipeline for AWS, which will be accomplished in the upcoming years.
