The following checklist of tasks pre and post-construction will help ensure a smooth delivery of your post frame building project.
Choose a location that will allow proper water drainage from all four corners of your building.
Design the building with usage and cosmetic appeal in mind. Confirm with your sales representative size requirements and building classification (commercial or farm/country residential).
Commercial/Local Authority Requirement
Obtain appropriate building blueprints for the project if required. Commercial Structures may require fire rating options.
Obtain a development permit from the appropriate authority if necessary.
Ensure your financing is in place prior to construction to avoid any delays.
A building contract must be signed prior to the building being ordered and construction date established. A deposit will be taken at this time.
Identify and locate all owner-installed utilities as well as utility company services. Call before you dig.
Remove all organic material and level site within six inches across all perimeter points of the building. Arrange to have gravel delivered as per your contract and place outside of the building footprint.
The construction crew requires 15’ clearance around the perimeter of your building. A suitable staging area for the building materials is also required within close proximity of the building site. Confirm these details with your sales representative.
Please provide a trailer or dumpster to dispose of any remaining construction garbage. Construction crew will pick up any visible nails on the ground.
Backfill topsoil or gravel around perimeter of the building to ensure proper water drainage is maintained.
