Looking to save money on your next farm shed, hangar, horse arena cover or industrial complex?
We share out top 4 tips that could potentially save you thousands in shed costs.
By following these tips from the start, you can be sure to build the perfect building for your needs, without blowing your budget.
The best way to approach a new steel building and reduce your shed cost is by getting a clear picture of the end result.
How can this reduce costs?
By knowing what you want at the end of the day, get rid of any bells and whistles that might sound good, but really don’t add to what you want the building for.
So ask yourself:
Spend a minute on each questions and think about the end result that you want. Get a clear picture in you mind.
Keep this picture in your mind when making decision on the specific details of you shed. This can potentially save you a lot of money.
Many price conscious people think that shaving a meter here or there will save them money. This is not the case.
What will save you money is by sticking to standard sizing. We can definitely customize, and we are very efficient at it, but if you are a price conscious person, sticking to standard designs, which we do offer, is a good option to start with.
Here are some standards for larger sheds.
Wall Heights Available
Bay Sizes Available
By sticking to these standards, you can be sure to keep the cost of building a shed to a minimum
“Wait, what!?” Didn’t we just say sticking to standards is better?
The key to customizing your shed (and not blow your budget) is to start with a standard shed design, and then customizing certain parts to suit your needs.
We have refined our customization process where many changes can be made at little to no extra cost, and at times save you money.
Many people often consult an architect and engineer before contacting a shed manufacture. This often results in many processes being repeated, which means more expenses for you.
In these cases, an architect will design the structure, get it reviewed by an engineer and then get us to build it.
Often will have to redo the designs to make sure we can build it. We often come up with a more cost effective design that a generic architectural design. This process involves the designs being sent to an engineer once again to be approved for construction.
By talking to us first, you can potentially save yourself thousands. And if your project does require an architect, then you can easily consult them afterwards at no extra unnecessary cost.
By keeping these tips in mind from the start, you can be sure you will save yourself a lot of headaches, back and forth, and unwanted costs.
