Commercial (& Semi-Commercial) Steel Building Prices (2021 Prices)

If you’re asking yourself – How Much Does a Commercial Metal Building Costs? Or “What is the Average Price of a Commercial Extra Wide Steel Structure? Then here is the answer:

The cost of commercial light gauge steel buildings may be as low as $8 per sq ft or as high as $50 per sq ft. The metal building prices depend on the current steel prices (which are going up constantly since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic), options you choose (such as vertical roof style/fully enclosed steel structures), wind speed and snow load certification, number, size, and location of the garage doors, roll-ups or overhead doors, frame outs and insulation. Despite this, know that light gauge steel is the cheapest option for steel building kits that you can use as steel shops, warehouses, commercial, semi-commercial, and agricultural units.

We know you got a good ballpark estimate for what it would cost to buy a metal building with the above-mentioned per sq. ft. Prices. However, we went ahead and added the latest commercial steel building prices in a table below for you to get an even more realistic understanding of what it will cost you.

In the table below, we have added the latest commercial building prices for what are known as commercial and semi-industrial pre-engineered buildings(updated for summer of year 2021). Please note these are the base only prices (width x length) for a 8’ tall steel structure. It is very difficult to predict the actual price of these structures as they are built for loads and codes. So prefab commercial carports can also be known as custom metal buildings. The best way to price a prefab commercial metal building is to call the Boss Buildings team and get a real time update on lead times and prices for custom commercial metal buildings.

    What all Do You Need to Do For Before Installing The Building?

    Ground Preparation

    Before starting with ground Preparation, the first thing you need to do is to check with local authorities for permits and codes for the metal buildings.

    Choosing the Site

    Once the permits are clear, you would want to decide a specific location for the building. The site you want to choose should be accessible, flat, and with proper drainage where water doesn’t accumulate in case of the rain.

    Clearing and leveling the Site

    Next step is to clear the site. You need to make sure that the site is clear of debris, vegetation, trash or any kind of obstacle. It is also advisable to level the area before starting any work. You do not want any slopes on the site. The site should be as flat as possible.


    There are several types of foundations available for commercial metal buildings. Your options are concrete, asphalt, ground and gravel.


    Concrete is the gold standard for foundations. It is the strongest, durable and is recommended for commercial steel buildings.



    Asphalt is a good choice for commercial buildings where vehicle traffic is expected. It also has a high tolerance to wind and rain.



    Gravel is one the inexpensive foundation options. It is also easy to re-level and customizable over time. Drainage is also easier with gravel.



    This is the most inexpensive foundation option. The ground base is usually preferred by agriculture and related businesses.
