How Much Does a 30’ x 60’ Metal Building Cost?
Pre-engineered metal buildings (PEMB) offer a flexible and cost-effective solution when designing your new structure. A variety of sizes and shapes are available, and a 30’ x 60’ metal building – with its 1,800 square foot space – is a popular choice for both residential and commercial applications.
Perhaps your metal building will serve as a personal workshop and office; an auto shop and business; or just a barn; a 30’ x 60’ PEMB is a compact but spacious building that would only cost approximately $15,500.00 to $17,500.00 plus shipping as of May 2019 if designed for a non-snow area with standard, light windspeeds. That’s only $8.61 to $9.72 per square foot! Just keep in mind that your price may vary depending on your design load requirements and options.
Things to Consider
A 30’ x 60’ pre-engineered metal building offers excellent space and value for its price, but its important to consider other areas where savings can be found. Location, accessories, and special conditions (such as cranes or galvanized metal) are all areas that can influence the price of your building.
By taking the location and use of your building into account, a metal building can be designed in the most economical fashion possible while still meeting the code requirements set forth by your state and county officials.
If ventilation is a concern – such as in paint and body shops, livestock barns, or specialized storage – then ridge vents, cupolas, exhaust fans, and other options are available to you. Other accessories you might consider include doors, windows, and insulation packages. Designing your building for these accessories at the inception of your project will save on expensive retro-fitting down the road!
Insulate and Save!
Insulation is an extremely popular accessory and an inexpensive upgrade that will save you hundreds to thousands of dollars throughout the long life of your pre-engineered metal building.
During the construction of your building, a 4” R-13 layer of fiberglass blanket insulation can be easily placed between your framing and sheeting. For a 30’ x 60’ metal building insulation would only add $2,340.00 to $2,530.00 to your project before shipping! And look at the clean white interior it creates:
