Time Needed to Erect a Metal Building Mesa AZ



A big question of anyone purchasing a metal building is how much time is needed for it to be built. This example from Mesa AZ shows the amount of time needed to erect a metal building.

This is a “Turn-Key” project which means the contractor hired for the project will oversee all aspects of the construction.

Initial Phase

  • The Building is designed to meet engineering specifications and local code requirements.

  • Building building is released for production. Within 6-8 weeks the metal building package will be on site ready for erection.


For the contractor, that 6-8 week period is the time for laying out site for the concrete foundation, and making sure everything will be ready to begin erection when the building package arrives on site.


  • Footings dug around the perimeter with steel reinforcements installed.

  • The footings and the concrete slab are poured

  • Anchor bolts positioned for the rigid frame to be bolted to the foundation.

  • Foundation is complete and the steel package has arrived, the erection begins.

  • The large rigid frame pieces are mounted in place on the concrete foundation.

  • Girts and purlins are added which make up the walls and the roof.

  • The walls are sheeted first, then the roof

  • Insulation strips are fastened between the metal sheets and the frame.

  • Trim is installed around the building giving it a good finishing touch

  • All other additions, such as overhead doors, windows, walk-through doors, gutters/downspouts, etc.


The crews erect the building with precision and expertise. This both time and money, making sure your project is completed on schedule and on budget.
