How Much Does a 3,600 Square Foot Metal Building Cost?

Pre-engineered metal buildings have proven themselves to be effective solution for projects that need clever, custom, and cost-efficient design solutions – from your simple storage shed to your multi-crane industrial building. Your 3,600 square foot metal building, for example, could be the perfect structure for any of the following applications:

  • Office or Retail Space
  • Industrial Floor
  • Large Workshop or Garage
  • Large Metal Building Home
  • Recreational Facility
  • And Much More!

The end use of your building and the way it fits on your property will be the two largest factors in determining the shape of your building. That being said, something to consider is that – even as your roof, eave height, and other design options stay the same – the width and length of your building is can have a significant impact your final price.

How much does a 30’ x 120’ metal building cost?

The long and narrow approach may be the best choice if you are planning a logistics center, office warehouse, or even a light aircraft hangar. This would allow your metal building to use lighter frames, but you would need more of them overall to allow for the additional length.

Your standard 30’ x 120’ metal building, for example, would price between $26,480 and $28,690 before delivery – which comes to $7.36 to $7.97 per square foot over 3,600 square feet.

How much does a 60’ x 60’ metal building cost?

In general, a square metal building will have the best price per square foot when compared to other, differently shaped buildings with the same amount of floorspace. This is largely due to there being less frame lines required and the steel being allowed to work at its fullest capacity.

This trend continues with your average 60’ x 60’ metal building. It would only cost between $23,490 and $25,440, or only $6.53 to $7.01 per square foot over 3,600 square feet!
