PLANNING YOUR METAL BUILDING
When you are ready for a steel building, what’s next? Here are some suggested steps to help you to create your steel building.
Review steel building standards available from your local code authority. Most county and city governments have codes controlling construction in their areas. Some neighborhood associations have recommendations concerning steel structures.
DESIGNING YOUR BUILDING
During the design process, your Steel Depot representative will gather useful specifications about the building’s purposes and desired amenities. His work will help you in the selection of the required add-ons to complete the design of your steel building. Your Steel Depot representative will explain the criteria you will need to know about designing your building correctly.
ENGINEERING THE PROJECT
Because every steel building differs, each one needs to be designed according to its loads, size, location, codes, and use. Your Steel Depot representative will discuss the various criteria that are important to the engineering process.
Once all the building requirements are understood, your Steel Depot representative will provide you with a sales agreement.
SELECTING A CONTRACTOR
It is beneficial to arrange for a professional erector a couple of months ahead of time. This will help to ensure that construction can begin immediately upon delivery of your building materials.
DELIVERY OF YOUR METAL BUILDING
After purchasing your steel building, you are prepared to prepare the site for the delivery of the building’s materials. Your professional erector will be your best guide during this phase.
RECEIPT OF YOUR BUILDING
It is your responsibility to verify all required materials are received upon the delivery of your steel building. Your verification will upon delivery will prevent any problems, like shortages or broken materials, from slowing down your building’s construction.
