Taking into consideration the greater demand of the pre-manufactured steel construction, new types of constructive elements have been often introduced in the national market and, as a consequence, users and professionals have questioned its performance levels. Moreover, its viability in the Brazilian industry is directly linked on its successful association to insulation systems. Therefore, the general performance criteria achieved by the final construction is significantly influenced by degree of association reached between both systems, in such a way that all the other construction complementary stages must be adapted to both systems mentioned. In accordance with these explanations, the goal here is to make a survey of the real problems that have appeared when the steel structures are combined with insulation panels, as well as to characterize the design and execution processes of civil construction carried out commonly in Brazil. Finally, it is worth mention that the main aspects are relating to the problems detected in prefabricated steel buildings and their solutions, in such a way their development can become in a real and viable solution in the scene of the national civil construction.
