The 40×60 metal building package is among our most popular options for starting a professional mechanic shop business. Auto shops of this size require a high degree of customization, and General Steel’s diverse selection of components ensures your building will reflect your business needs. In addition to the primary and secondary framing, building owners can add a combination of sectional doors, roll-up doors, windows, interior partitions, and more to enhance functionality and efficiency. Consider adding GenStone and an exterior color scheme to add aesthetic value.
There are three factors that affect the price of your building. The first is design, which includes all of the custom features that you choose. The second is the price of steel, which can fluctuate daily based on the market. The third is economies of scale, which affects the price per square foot.
