Industrial and Commercial Metal Buildings


An industrial warehouse building kit (building only) will cost $5-$25 or more per square foot depending on use, design, and local building codes.

Warehouses are there to normally provide businesses and factories with an adequate storage solution. The main purpose of their design is to make distribution easy by providing enough space for large vehicles to access. Factories, on the other hand, are the main point where goods/products are manufactured and are normally located near public transport facilities to cater for employees.

When speaking about commercial real estate, people are normally referring to offices and retail shops. Industrial real estate is usually used to refer to warehouses and factories. However, you are frequently going to hear “commercial real estate” is used for both.

There are numerous advantages that pre-engineered buildings provide with some of them being:

  • The speed of construction for industrial and commercial metal buildings is 30% faster  when compared to conventional building methods.
  • Commercial metal buildings offer a greater degree of flexibility in design from extravagant HQ’s to simple steel warehouses. 
  • Due to the demand of pre-engineered metal buildings, finding a skilled workforce is easier.
  • Pre-engineered steel structures are easily expanded to grow with your business. 

A “prefab” or “Prefabricated” building simply means to pre-build before taking the structural elements to the site. It has become mainly popular due to how fast it is and helps builders avoid a lot of hassle. Once the important elements are pre-built, they will be bought to the building site to assemble.

The time to build a structure  depends on its size and complexity. If you are looking to get larger industrial buildings, then a good estimate would be 6-8 months. While if the building is around 10,000 square feet, then it may be done much sooner or roughly in 3-6 months depending on the efficiency and experience of the builders.

If you are going for commercial steel buildings or metal buildings, there are numerous design options which include a standing seam roof, a colored roof, wainscot, exterior designer panels, awnings and much more depending on your preferences and requirements.

Commercial metal buildings can be up to 300 feet wide and as long as you want it to be, so long as it does not violate any laws and it is approved by government/the relevant governing bodies of your district.

Lease or Build a Commercial Metal Building?

One of the harder questions to answer is whether you should lease your building or build new? The unsatisfying answer is, it depends. Here are a few instances when it makes sense to build new.

  • You’ll be there for a while – Here is a rule of thumb to help guide the decision. How long will you be there? If the answer is, “longer than 5 years,” than it usually makes more financial sense to build. 
  • You’re a startup – That does not mean that startups need to shy away from construction. Building a flex space warehouse -a flexible, open-concept warehouse that can be redesigned to meet your company’s changing needs- is a perfect solution. 
  • You have heavy, industry-specific requirements – The food industry needs a cold storage building for storage which is hard to find, especially in a logistics-friendly location. A data center building needs two power sources, two fiber-optic options, and a complex primary and secondary air-conditioning system. Hatcheries need biosecurity and temperature-controls greater than normal warehouses can provide. The more industry-specific your building needs to be, the more likely building a new commercial metal building becomes your best option. 
  • You want to save money – The ongoing and maintenance costs of commercial metal buildings are exceptionally low. They can save your business 50% or more on monthly building maintenance costs, which means you make more profit. 

The only way to know for sure is to do a comprehensive analysis of your business’ options. For the cases where construction is the best choice, Strong Building Systems is here to help.
