27 Mar How To Determine the Best Size for Your Prefabricated Steel Building?
Choosing a suitable size for your prefabricated metal building is not an easy task. But gathering certain information can guide you to make a correct decision. First, you must know what the purpose of your prefabricated steel building is. How will you be using your metal building? For example, will it be used for a warehouse, industrial shop, aircraft hangar, retail store, or storage facility?
Also, consider what equipment, if any, will you have inside the metal building. Knowing what your building will be for and what will be inside of it, can help you determine the length, width, and height needed. The length of a prefabricated metal building can be whatever you want it to be. Since metal buildings are very versatile you can design your first building with an expandable rigid frame. This will allow you to easily expand the length of your building in the future.

In addition, check on the required zoning, parking, and building code requirements in the city the building will be located.
