Three Ways to Buy a Steel Building

Steel Buildings Buyers' Guide

Once you've made a decision on the type of building that you need, the size, features and finishes you need to start thinking about who you'll buy the steel building from. We've identified three ways to buy a steel building according the the type of company who you commission for the project. There follows a brief description of each of these three different supplier types:

1. Specialist Building Contractors

A contractor who specialises in commercial steel building projects can give you valuable advice about practical aspects of the construction process and about the building itself. The largest companies may also have architects and engineers who can start to move your project forward.

2. Steel Building Suppliers

A good supplier of commercial steel buildings will listen to what you want and arrange quotes from manufacturers and building contractors. A supplier may also be able to give you a price for the project from start to finish. Although suppliers may have preferred contractors and manufacturers, this may not be a bad thing. If the supplier has a good reputation, you’ll at least know that you’re getting an experienced and competent project team.

3. Steel Building Manufacturers

If you have the details of the steel building that you want and you know how to manage a construction job, you can save money by ordering direct from a steel building manufacturer. This approach works well with small-scale projects and can be equally as successful with larger schemes as long as you address all the issues mentioned in this guide. And even if your knowledge of construction management is limited, you can learn a great deal when you compare commercial steel buildings suppliers.
