When it comes to new building construction, few options are more efficient than building a steel building. But, as a consumer building a steel building, it’s important to be prepared for any and all possible issues that could occur. Organization skills become critical to keeping things on course. That’s where Premier Building Systems can make it all happen for you. We take care of the hassle, so you can just enjoy the process of watching your new steel building get built.

The first step in prefabricated steel building construction is to make sure all paperwork for the job is in order and that all drawings and/or blueprints are clearly understandable to you, as well as any contractors hired for the job. Prior to any work, zoning must be addressed to ensure proper regulations. Whether you live in Jackson, Mississippi, Shreveport, Louisiana, or Dallas, Texas, the construction of most steel buildings requires a building permit. In some cases, however, if you know your steel building is to be put up outside the city limits, it is possible construction may be free from local zoning regulations. The best part is that as soon as you contact Premier Building Systems, you’re assigned a metal building consultant who takes you through the entire construction process, from start to finish. All you have to do is follow instructions. We’ve got you covered the whole way.

As the end user, you are responsible that all local building codes of the steel building are met. Normally, a building code inspector absolutely must see the original purchase contract preceding assembly of the steel building. Subsequently, he will determine whether the building code office will authorize construction. But again, your steel building consultant takes care of everything for you when you work with Premier. We’ve done projects all over the country, even outside of Anchorage, Alaska!

During Construction of Your Steel Building

Delivery of the building must be discussed to insure its safe arrival to the work site. The prefabricated steel building must first be designed and pre-engineered at the manufacturing plant. Its important to answer all the questions your building consultant asks about the specifics of your metal building, since they are handling all shipping arrangements. Realize any last minute changes can be costly, so its important to talk through all the details including what kind of doors you want, what kind of windows, garage doors, exteriors, etc. Again, these are things your steel building consultant will address with you. As the customer, it is a requirement that the address specified on the invoice matches the exact location of the building site. The steel building and all other materials accompanying it must be received by either you or the local building contractor you work with.

Provide the manufacturer with any requests and understand that you both are on the same page for the delivery date, and confirm that all the paperwork matches to avoid any problems with the delivery of the metal structure.

The great thing about working with Premier Building Systems is that your steel building consultant helps you work through all the minute details so that nothing gets overlooked, and everything goes smoothly with your metal building construction project.
