2. Customize Your Prefab Steel Structure
Once you’ve chosen the type of building you need, we’ll give you the opportunity to customize your building with insulation, doors, windows, gutters, paint, and more. This is the step in the construction process where we attempt to hash out all of the requirements you need for your manufactured building as well what the building will be used for. Each metal building erection project has different requirements which will alter the cost to erect the steel building. We want your building to be exactly the way you need it.
3. We Manufacture The Building Materials For Your Metal Building
Now it’s our turn to get to work! With your specifications, we build the parts that will make up your metal building. This will include manufacturing the base of the steel structure, the frame system, the trims, the accessories, and other pieces carefully to ensure everything we need to construct your building is ready to be put together. Our team does multiple rounds of inspections in order to insure than the building material for your steel building are in perfect condition.
4. Our Team Visits the Lot and Lays the Concrete Foundation
Before constructing your building, we’ll ensure your land is level and lay the concrete foundation. The foundation is important because a structure is only as strong as its foundation. If the foundation is weak, then the structure will likely collapse. By analyzing the surface level and laying concrete we provide our buildings with a strong foundation to help your building withstand even the strongest of storms. The concrete foundation will consist of pier pads beneath each column, a perimeter footer, 4″ gravel or sand, wire, rebar, plastic, anchor bolts and a slab thickness per your specifications (typically 4″ – 6″).
5. Our Team Begin The Prefab Metal Building Process
When the concrete foundation has been poured and has had time to dry, we’ll construct your new metal building to the specifications our team developed. Our crew will arrive with the components on a large flatbed truck and with all the tools we need to construct your building. Building steel manufactured buildings are known for how quickly they can be erected compared to other building materials. With years of experience building a variety of steel structures, our team will work efficiently and diligently to provide you with a steel building that you absolutely love.
