Steel Building Pricing Info
What are the general price ranges?
First off, remember that you need to pay to prepare and lay a concrete foundation before your building is installed. This will cost you between $5-$10 per square foot. Always remember to ask the steel building supplier whether they include the cost for a foundation. (This is another reason why finding prices online is deceptive - you need to speak directly to the suppliers.)
Be extremely cautious when ordering a steel building online. A price listed online will typically not include shipping, laying a foundation and labor. Also, a building ordered online may not meet your local building codes, resulting in fines or even demolition by your local authorities.
Remember: research and compare quotes online but speak with suppliers and purchase offline.
The steel building material costs depend on the quality of your building. If you want a basic steel building without a façade, just corrugated steel sides and no insulation, then you'll typically pay between $6-$10 per square foot. More complicated buildings, with elaborate facades, cost between $11-$18 per square foot. (Remember, this does not include the cost to dig and pour a foundation, labor or delivery).
Finally, labor prices are dependant on the size of the project, the location and other factors, but generally cost between $3-$10 per square foot.
In total, if you want a basic building with simple corrugated steel sides, you should pay between $15-$22 per square foot. If you want a building with a very basic façade, you should expect to pay $22-$35 per square foot. And if you want a steel building that looks just like classic wood construction that has an uncommon design, with an elaborate façade (for example a brick façade), expect to pay at least $40 per square foot.
