Rigid Global Buildings Hosts Phoenix Construction at Indy 500
Congratulations to Dreyer & Reinbold for their 4th place finish in the Indianapolis 500. Rigid was fortunate to have the opportunity to take Phoenix Construction’s Shayne Howe and Brent McComb to the race as part of the sponsorship with the Indy racing team.
The MBCEA was in Houston Texas where they held their 43rd annual conference. The conference kicked off with a golf tournament held at Oakhurst Golf Club in Kingwood, TX and then wrapped up with meetings and exhibitors at the Crowne Plaza in Houston.
In addition to being a hole sponsor at the golf tournament, Rigid Global Buildings also held a plant tour for all of the MBCEA attendees. This tour proved to be a great opportunity for some of the attendees as they got to see first hand the manufacturing process of a pre-engineered metal building.

Houston, TX. April 19, 2012 – Rigid Global Buildings, industry leading manufacturer in pre-engineered steel buildings, is now offering SOLAR; PV Laminate and Crystalline Modules.
Rigid Global Buildings has been a landmark in the metal building industry offering metal buildings for all industry types in virtually any shape and size for years. As sustainable building become standard in the steel building industry – Solar is the perfect combination of renewable energy and metal buildings.
As the technology for Solar has continued to expand, renewable energy is no longer a thing of the past but now a reality. The solar modules today are designed to last up to 30 years and more – the building it is on – and more importantly – the roof it is on should last as long if not longer.
Through Rigid Global Solar – Rigid is bringing solar to the construction industry. With the solar programs and information available through Rigid Global Solar you have everything you need. The solar system comes with everything necessary to install and integrate, including electrical drawings. Once connected, your system will start generating clean renewable energy immediately.
Rigid offers two solar modules – crystalline modules and PV laminate modules. Crystalline modules are typically less expensive and generate more energy. They are mounted directly to a standing seam metal roof with specially designed clips to maintain a penetration free roof system, or if you have a conventional roof they can be applied utilizing a racking system. If aesthetics are a concern, PV laminate modules are applied directly to a standing seam metal roof panel using a peel and stick application – also providing a penetration free roof system. The PV laminate solar modules are flush with the metal roof providing a seamless effect on the roof system.
The square footage and direction of the angle of the roof determine the size of the solar application for each project. If the project is in the early stages, designers can ensure the best location for optimum effectiveness of a solar system by placing the angle of the roof at the prime location to receive the most amount of sunlight available. Rigid Global Solar offers systems ranging from 0.7 kWp to systems over 250+ kWp. Give us a call today to see how solar can apply to your next project or visit our website for our Solar Brochure.
