STEEL BUILDING PROJECT PLANNING
Create the custom building you've always imagined.
So you've decided to create a custom steel building - congratulations! There are several steps involved in taking your project from your imagination to reality. From building design and delivery to erection of the steel building, this section will explain each stage of the buying and construction process.

Throughout the design process, your sales representative will gather information about the uses of your building and all of the accessories required to complete the project. In this section, we explain all the criteria you will need to know about designing your building before it can be manufactured.
Because every steel building is different, each one must be engineered based on its size, location and use. The first step is to review steel building requirements with your local code authority. Most counties and city governments have codes and specifications governing construction in their areas. Check with any local neighborhood associations that may have restrictions or guidelines concerning steel buildings. You also need to think about the different types of loads you must take into consideration.

Once all of the building requirements have been added, your sales representative will present you with a purchase agreement. An initial deposit of 25% is required to proceed with the order, then the final payment is due at delivery. Mueller accepts cash, checks (with proper identification), Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
It is a good idea to schedule your project construction with a qualified independent erector several weeks in advance, so it can begin immediately upon delivery of the building.
After purchasing your steel building, it's time to prepare the construction site for the delivery of your building.
It's up to you to verify all materials received upon the delivery of your steel building. That way, any problems - such as shortages or damaged materials - can be resolved at that time.
After the building has been delivered, the construction process can begin. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or you need to hire a qualified independent erector, Mueller will provide installation manuals to support your project.
