Understanding Price Per Square Foot

When you’re considering the purchase of a metal building, it’s important to understand that numerous factors that go into calculating cost. Price per square foot is unique to each and every project, and often times cannot be accurately quoted until specific details have been collected and analyzed for your project. Even providing you with a price range per square foot can be difficult to do with accuracy. To help give you an idea of what influences your building price, our experience has shown the following:

FACTORS RESULTING IN LOWER COST PER SQFT

  • Larger buildings, typically above 5,000 square feet
  • Low snow load, wind speeds and seismic activity
  • .5 to 1:12 roof pitch
  • Quality of the steel

FACTORS RESULTING IN HIGHER COST PER SQFT

  • High snow, wind and seismic conditions
  • Unique roof elevations including pitch and hips
  • The number and types of customizations added
  • Rising steel prices domestically or globally

At BRI Buildings, we use the highest quality of product available in the industry. While that may be reflected in the initial cost of your building, many buyers find that the investment results in lower life-cycle costs and a finished product that has both durability and longevity.
