Steel Building Cost-2022 Estimates & Prices

Steel Building Cost has always been a priority for many homeowners when choosing a building project. When you decide to make a purchase in the market, you must have already done a lot of research on metal buildings. Then you must know that there are many factors that influence the cost of a steel building (location, customisation, extra kits, etc.). Only when all the details have been worked out will you know the true cost of this metal building!

Typically, steel buildings cost US$10-25 per square foot, with prices falling as the total floor area is reduced.

However, this price could potentially be lower or higher.

This is due to the price of the materials used in the building itself, the size, the complexity of the design and the additional customization and special reinforcement required to cope with complex and changing weather conditions. All of these factors combine to affect the final price of a metal building.

Overall, however, metal buildings are less expensive to build than wood/concrete buildings, and their economic performance becomes more pronounced over time.

Is It Cheaper To Build & Buy A Metal Building?

The overall cost of a metal building will be lower compared to a wooden/concrete building. And as the life cycle increases, the lifetime maintenance costs of a wooden/concrete building are higher. So in comparison, when you start building a metal building, you will save your money step by step from the beginning to the end of its use. Steel is also one of the most cost effective building materials, which is difficult to match with other materials.

The primary factor affecting the price of metal buildings - building size

Building size is the number one factor that directly affects the price of steel buildings, and different building sizes inevitably correspond to different prices. This depends on the size of your land area and the specific building use to determine.

The next factor is the current building height, especially for specific commercial uses, you will want to get more interior space in a limited space. And KAFA offers steel spaces that provide wide interior space as well as top space for 20-40 feet height customization, if you have higher height needs then let us know!

Other factors affecting the cost of steel structures

There are so many factors affecting the cost of steel structures, for this reason we have collated a few of the more important influencing factors for reference only. For details, please consult our designers for an accurate quote:

1. Location

What are your local building codes?

For example specific snow loads as well as wind loads

2. Building Style

We offer both straight wall and gable building styles. Both building types are strong, but gable buildings save around $1 per square foot compared to straight wall buildings.

3. Windows & Doors

Windows and doors are essential accessories for metal buildings, providing thermal, thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as fire and energy saving features. They play a vital role in appearance and function. This will of course cost 10%-30% of the base kit to purchase windows and doors.

4. Insulate Your Building

For insulation, the more effective conventional ones are generally fibreglass insulation, spray foam, double-foam insulation and prefabricated insulation panels. These insulations help to make a metal building a comfortable office production environment.

5. Accessories

Are you considering adding additional add-on components such as gutters, downpipes, ventilation equipment, reflectors etc.? Generally, these kits cost 10-20% of the price of the base kit

6. Freight

Steel kits are delivered from the factory to your job site by truck. Therefore, the cost of transport is included in the detailed building quote. Fortunately, when you purchase a kit from kafa, the KAFA team will provide a free build service.

7. Insurance Costs

It is beneficial to take out insurance for your steel building to reduce your building risk.
