Metal Shop Buildings Design
The first task is to be familiar with the drawings as a whole, carefully read and understand the architectural design instructions and structural design instructions, and summarize the relevant information that you think you need to know in the process of calculation.
For example material specifications and models of roof panels, wall panels, gutter, main Material and material of steel frame, crane beam, purlin, etc., as well as steel surface treatment requirements, etc.
Due to the different materials used by different manufacturers and different quotation methods, the prices of steel shop buildings are also very different.

Span and Height
A metal shop building with a span of 15 meters is a watershed. Greater than 15 meters, the cost per unit area will decrease with the increase of the span, but if the span is less than 15 meters the span is reduced, and the cost per unit area will increase instead.
The standard height of the steel structure is generally 6-8 meters. The increase in height will affect the safety of the structure, so the amount of steel used in the steel structure will also increase, which will ultimately affect the cost of the entire metal shop building.
The material of metal shop buildings is mainly steel, and its price is relatively stable.

The labor cost of metal shop building construction, generally a simple single-story steel warehouse construction time is about 3 months, and the labor needs 20 people. According to the average monthly salary of each person, the corresponding cost can be calculated.
Technical and project costs are included. The process cost includes preliminary design and drawing, which many manufacturers do not consider, but the detailed design will reduce the waste of the later construction process.
