Planning & Construction
Planning a prefabricated steel warehouse building is, without doubt, the most critical stage for your company's growing storage requirements. Today, warehouse designs have advanced greatly in their development, creating options that weren’t previously available. A pre-engineered building manufacturer will provide features to make planning and constructing a painless process with sample plans and designs for your proposed storage requirements.
A few key factors you must consider before actually constructing your steel warehouse building are the following:
- Building Code - Make sure you know your local code information. This can be done by calling your local building department and telling them that you would like to build a metal building at the given location. It is up to you, as the customer, to give the metal building supplier the final code information. It’s also a good idea to look into the setbacks and other code information that may prohibit the use of a metal building or any building on a given lot.
- Building Dimensions - Gather the dimensions of your warehouse building and indicate things like where you would like to have doors and windows and what color walls, roof and trim you want to have as well as the height of the building. This is extremely important when constructing a warehouse building, as doors must be the right size for large machinery and the dimensions will determine what inevitably can fit inside your warehouse.
