What is the average cost of a 30×60 metal building?
One crucial component to consider for the total project cost is the foundation. Most metal buildings use a concrete slab foundation, which costs an average of $5.40-$6.40 per square foot for a 4″ slab.
For a 30×60 metal building with 1,800 square feet, the foundation can cost anywhere from $9,720 to $11,520.
In addition to the foundation, the price of the 30×60 metal building package itself will take the biggest bite from the overall cost.

The more turn-key the build project, the more you should expect to pay. For residential dwellings, customization options, such as adding framed openings, overhead doors, walk doors, or lean-tos, will also increase the final cost.
For example, a recent workshop house with a standard 30×40 steel building with two 10’x12′ framed openings, overhead doors, one 3’x7′ walk door, and a 12’x40’x7′ lean-to addition was purchased in March of 2023 at a cost around $34,500.

Building Codes & Load Factors
When it comes to constructing any metal building, it is important to understand building codes and load factors before getting started. Building codes are regulations that ensure buildings are safe to use by specifying each component of the structure, including design, construction, materials, and more. These codes cover not only physical safety but also comfort, health, appearance, and access.
One of the most important load factors to consider when building a metal building is the snow load.
Snow load is the amount of weight that a building must be able to support from the accumulation of snow on its roof. This load can vary depending on the location of the building and the amount of snowfall in the area. It is important to ensure that the building is designed to handle the maximum snow load in the area where it will be constructed.
Another important load factor to consider is the wind load.
Wind load is the amount of force that wind exerts on a building. Like snow load, wind load can vary depending on the location of the building and the prevailing winds in the area. It is important to ensure that the building is designed to withstand the maximum wind load in the area where it will be constructed.
Local building codes also play a role in the construction of a metal building. These codes can vary depending on the location of the building and may include regulations on the size, height, and placement of the building. It is important to consult with local authorities to ensure that the building is in compliance with all applicable codes.
Insulation regulations and energy codes are also important considerations when building a metal building. These regulations can vary depending on the location of the building and may include requirements for insulation, ventilation, and other energy-efficient features. It is important to ensure that the building is designed to meet all applicable regulations to maximize energy efficiency and reduce operating costs.
