Can I just buy a standard steel building that is pre-designed?
Yes and No. At MBMI, some of our smaller buildings are pre-designed and are appropriate for any climate in the US.
We have pre-designed buildings in larger sizes as well. But slight modifications are needed. This is so that the frames are the right strength to meet the Building Code requirements for your area.
For example, if you live in an area that experiences high winds; or an area where there are heavy snow loads in the winter; you’ll have a building that’s designed to resist those loads. In addition, your local authority may have special planning requirements or building bylaws that we need to take into consideration.
