Shop Kits and Garage Buildings

While certain limitations exist for every project, people appreciate spaciousness in their work or storage areas.

Often, due to budget constraints, a buyer will make choices that directly impact the functionality of their metal building. They may select a building that is either too small for the intended use or sacrifice quality for size. Either of these mistakes can end up costing more in the long term.

The following items give you just a few of the variables in each specific geographical area that will need to be considered when planning the erecting of a steel building.

1. Weather Conditions - wind, cold, heat and snow can all have an impact and/or delay the work schedule.

2. Labor – an available pool of labor personnel as well as the hourly wage of experienced labor will impact cost.

3. Equipment Required – Size and cost per day/week or month of Local Equipment Rental, Lease or Purchase.

4. Site Conditions - Working in a large level area will be much faster that working on the side or top of the mountain!

5. Insurance Cost – Be sure to request copies and make sure that each Builder or erector carries the appropriate insurance. Many erectors do not carry insurance at all and pay cash to their labor to avoid workmen’s compensation, general and other liability insurances.

6. Complexity of Structure - a simple box building will be much faster than a complex building with 2-story mezzanines, mansards, roof hips or valleys, exterior stucco or other types of aesthetic added value products.

7. Clear Span Width of Building - clear span buildings over 60-80’ wide can take more time due to the safety requirements and equipment needed to handle longer and heavier beams.

8. Travel Time to Jobsite - obviously the amount of time to get to the site each day or travel cost if applicable, will influence the final cost.

9. Accessories – additional items such as insulation in the roof and walls, the type of insulation system, Standing Seam roofs, walk doors, windows, overhead doors, canopies etc. will be items that need to have the additional hours to install added to your cost.
