Steel Building Kit
Steel Building Styles
Metal building kits come in a variety of styles and can be customized to fit your needs.
Quonset Arch Steel Buildings offer extreme versatility and ease of assembly. Suitable for a variety of purposes from farming to commercial, this building style has become popular as a DIY garage or workshop building.
Steel Frame Buildings
Steel Frame Buildings are a traditional style of building with straight walls and a peaked or sloped roof. It's an economical option for both large commercial buildings like warehouses, and smaller residential construction.
Why Choose a Steel Building Kit?
The decision to make a building is not an easy one. Even harder, is determining what type of building and the best supplier for your needs. Below are a few of the main reasons steel building kits have become so popular over the years and why they may be the right option for you. Be sure to do your research and if there are any questions, request a quote with your building requirements and speak with a specialist who can answer your specific needs.
Lower Building Costs
Buildings are an expensive proposition, but you can help minimize costs by choosing a custom metal building kit. These buildings are able to reduce construction costs first by taking advantage of mass-production in a factory. Second, they have lower assembly costs than traditional buildings since everything is pre-cut and requires less labor for erection. Finally, unlike with traditional construction where a good portion of the material is cut and left unused, there's virtually no waste with steel building kits because any excess metal can be melted and recycled into future buildings.
People often overlook this part of the building process, but it's a big one. You wouldn't be looking for a building unless there's an immediate need. With traditional-style buildings such as wood-framed or brick, construction can take months, or even years depending on the size and complexity of your building. Steel building kits simplify the construction process by cutting pieces at the factory. In many cases, such as with Quonset hut kits, building kit walls can be bolted together without any special equipment or experience. This will not always be the case when you get into larger buildings such as commercial warehouses, but your representative will be able to assist with estimated build times for your specific building needs.
No matter how stress-free you may be, the process of buying and constructing a building can be a stressful one. Issues often come from contractors being late, building plans not matching the constructed building, inspectors having issues with the way things are approached, etc. You can also run into issues getting building plans approved. With a prefab steel buildings kit, you know what you're getting into, the building should arrive as designed and be sure to speak with your rep about engineer-stamped building plans which will help make the municipal building approvals as streamlined as possible.
Engineered for Your Needs
If you're looking to create a traditional style custom building from scratch, then the cost of an architect and engineer can be prohibitive. If you're thinking of skipping them, think again since many local building departments will require them. One of the benefits of steel building kits is that they can be easily engineered and have the steel gauged for your local building codes. Most factories have multiple engineers on site for this very purpose. Engineering is not always included so be sure to speak with your building rep about having a factory engineer review and stamp your building drawings.
