Yes, if you communicate with your salesperson/project manager ahead of time so that your steel building can be engineered for it. Steel buildings are sometimes not particularly easy to retro-fit or remodel later on. The structure is engineered for a specific use and design. Bear in mind that changing the design or look of the structure once the building has been erected is not easy. In fact, with an engineered steel frame and communication with your salesperson/project manager, the steel building might only need to be framed with steel while the exterior walls might be constructed of any number of materials. A steel building is engineered to bend slightly in the elements. This is called deflection. Reducing deflection increases cost, but it is necessary because if you choose to add a faux finish – stucco, drywall, brick or stone for instance – and the building bends – even slightly – in the wind or cold weather, you’re going to end up with cracks and other unsightly failures in the finish.
