  1. Orientation and Layout

Before constructing any structure it is important to plan the layout and orientation of the building. While constructing a steel building both layout and orientation have to be planned and designed well. It will save your money and time. The places where you plan to setup the steel structure have to be inspected and the map of the place have to be understood well. You have to discuss with the manufacturers and the fabricators about the layout and orientation in detail. According to the space you have to decide on the facilities which you require in the steel building (the storage area, office, shop etc). The purpose for making the steel structure should also be considered. This will help you to know the frame, racks, shelves needed in your building. Your plan should be made to maximize the utilization of space and to meet your objective.

Another point to remember is the width of the structure. Larger width building equals to higher cost per square foot. By selecting custom made plan for the layout and optimizing the space you can build structures which are cost effective.

The orientation of the building should be decided prior to manufacturing and installation. Depending on the use and purpose of the building you have to decide the orientation or towards which direction the building should face.

Before confirming on a contractor you have to properly research and go through reviews. Also look at the experience and the projects already completed by the company. Take references, discuss about the estimated time for the completion of the project, cost, background check etc before signing an agreement and starting a work.

  1. Expansions and extension of steel buildings

It is easy to extend and expand steel buildings. You have to discuss with the contractor about the scope of expansion of your steel structure. Different types of expansion joints can be constructed like roof-to-roof, or roof-to-wall, ceiling-to-ceiling, ceiling-to-wall, floor-to-floor, floor-to-wall, wall-to-wall. Separation and new areas like floors, ceilings, walls, roofs, etc can be expanded.

  1. Location and the bracing required
