Rigid Global Buildings Donates Golf Tournament Proceeds to Homes for Our Troops
HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwired – May 13, 2013) – Rigid Global Buildings, an industry leading manufacturer of pre-engineered steel buildings, never limits excellence to its products. Rigid also places high value on excellent corporate citizenship. The company again underscored that commitment with proceeds from its annual winter golf tournament. Approximately 50 customers, vendors and employees played in the tournament, which for the second straight year benefited Homes for Our Troops. Held outside Houston at Gleannloch Farms Golf Club, Rigid’s tournament raised $2,400 for the veterans’ organization.
Homes for Our Troops provides residences for the brave young military men and women who suffer significant injuries while defending our freedom. The organization formed after 9/11. Rigid’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Steve Olson explained, “We felt Homes for Our Troops was a great match. It connected two very important aspects of what Rigid proudly stands for — construction and giving back to the community. It was an excellent way to get our vendors and customers involved in helping make a difference in the lives of these courageous veterans.”
Veterans Administration grants provide a home allowance of $64,960 to some injured veterans. Home costs typically climb well beyond that sum. Because most homes must also be modified to accommodate the injured resident’s ability to move about, donors such as Rigid come through for the veterans with additional funds.

In addition to pre-engineered steel buildings, Rigid Global Buildings manufactures structural steel, hi-rise buildings, and metal building components. To learn more about Rigid, phone 1-888-GO-RIGID (467-4443) or visit the website, www.RigidBuilding.com.

Houston, TX. August 13, 2012 – Rigid Global Buildings, industry leading manufacturer in pre-engineered steel buildings, has achieved International Accreditation Services (IAS) AC472 accreditation for metal buildings.
Over the course of the two-day audit, Rigid excelled in all areas of the certification process. The IAS accreditation program is based on the requirements of Chapter 17 of the International Building Code® (IBC) for the inspection of the metal building fabrication process covering not only manufacturing but also the quality management system including personnel, product traceability, process control and administrative and technical procedures.
The AC472 certification process has three parts, A, B and C. A focuses on fabrication of structural weldments and cold formed products requiring welding; B covers the fabrication of cold-formed products not requiring welding, and C focuses on the design of metal buildings. Throughout these three parts, Rigid Global Buildings met and exceeded the necessary requirements for this quality assurance program for the metal building industry.
Rigid’s Chairman of the Board Alex Ghodsi said “I was so proud of the Rigid Team for not only their continued support and superior workmanship but also for their dedication to the accreditation process.

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.
