Start pricing your industrial steel building now.
Before buying your steel buildings, there are a few things that should be considered. Think of this as the planning stage. To make sure that our customers are as informed as possible, we've put together some general advice to help you with the planning stages of your industrial steel building project.
When budgeting for your steel building project, it's important that you consider the project in its entirety. While you will always get a great price on your custom industrial building
from us, the price of the structure is rarely more than half of the overall cost of your project. Although our price includes drawings, the design, and materials for your building, there are other costs such as the foundation and labor. If you're going to add heating, electricity, cooling, plumbing, and flooring to your industrial steel building, you will want to take those prices into consideration, too.

Before purchasing your industrial steel building, permit requirements will need to be determined. While many people delay or avoid this task, this is never a good idea. Once you start gathering prices on your structure, you need to get in touch with the appropriate local authorities to find out what permits are required to construct a steel building. If you need a permit to build, here are things you'll need to find out:
- What the building code is (i.e., IBC or UBC).
- What the design loads are (wind, etc.).
- Whether you need to submit stamped drawings.
- Whether you need to submit design calculations.
Please note: Without this information, you cannot generate a correct price on your industrial steel building.
