How Much Does A Steel Building Cost?

As stated above, due to the highly customized nature of pre-engineered building systems, it is impossible to provide an accurate estimate of the cost of a steel building without input from the buyer. It is important that you have a clear understanding of what you want from your project and communicate that to a steel structure expert.

This involves obvious information such as the dimensions of your building (including length, width, and height) and the number and size of doors and windows. However, we will also need to confirm certain aspects like the building’s roof pitch, location (for building code requirements), and your insulation needs.

Building Costs Per Square Foot

Building Custom Metal Structures Is Our Specialty

Many steel building companies offer information about the average cost per sq ft of steel buildings. However, when reviewing the available information it becomes apparent that there is no real consensus on this price range. There are simply too many dynamic factors such as time of year, labor costs, accessories, and global economic conditions to make an accurate overall price estimate per square foot. Having said that, there are certain factors that will affect your final cost per square foot.

Lower Cost Per Square Foot

R

Buildings over 5,000 square feet (the price per sq ft goes down as sq ft goes up)

R

Buildings that experience little to no snow load, wind speed, or seismic activity

R

Lower roof pitch (this will depend on your location’s code requirements)

R

Few customizations and accessories

Price Of Steel

The fluctuating cost of steel will affect the pricing of your steel building to a significant degree. Steel prices vary depending on the season, supply and demand, cost of raw materials, and so on. In the past few years, the steel industry has seen record highs and lows in steel price meaning a quote you receive in March could be drastically different than the one you receive in September.

Interesting Note: Maverick Steel Buildings uses only 100% American Made Steel. We believe in supporting a network of American Businesses.

Fuel Prices

Maverick Steel Buildings is able to ship your pre-engineered building anywhere within the continental United States by big rig trucks. Obviously, those trucks need gas as fuel prices go up and down, so too will shipping prices shift to match. Fuel prices are heavily influenced by the global economy, seasonality, disruption in crude oil supply or pipelines, as well as supply and demand.

Customization Options

Part of the appeal of pre-engineered steel buildings is the ability to customize them to fit any use or industry. From residential to commercial – your customization possibilities are extensive. Adding a stone facade to your building will, of course, make the price higher than if you were to leave it with the standard metal finish. Adding mezzanines, porches, higher roof pitches, and more will affect the overall price of your project.

Building Code Requirements

Maverick Steel Buildings experts ensure that the building code requirements for the location your building is being shipped to are taken into account. In order to withstand the heavy snow load of the northeast United States, the extensive seismic activity found in California, or the wind speeds that can whip up in Tornado Alley – these local codes must be followed exactly and may affect the overall cost of your metal building.

Grading & Concrete

In order to construct your steel building, you will need to ensure that the building site is properly prepared. This often includes having the site professionally surveyed, then graded to be level, and finally, the concrete foundation is poured and cured. The cost of these services is dependant on the contractors you choose, the size of the area, and the accessibility of your location.

TIP: If you are struggling with finding a qualified contractor, Maverick Steel Buildings’ experts are happy to help find the right fit for your project.

Construction

You will need to factor in labor costs and contracting fees for the construction and installation of your metal building project. The process for erecting a pre-engineered metal structure is much simpler than stick-built construction. However, it is often still too complex for an inexperienced DIYer to attempt on their own. Make sure these costs are factored into your steel building price estimate of the final cost for your project.
