Steel Buildings

Just out of curiousity, I would like to know who else here uses a steel building as a shop or as part of their facility. We are looking to start construction of another location this winter on some property that we have previously aquired. I have only priced out one contractor so far and will get about four more before making any committments. Please offer your advice as far as size, contruction, materials, etc. We are looking to build a 50'x85' that is tall enough for two stories worth of office space with the rest as an open warehouse layout. Any suggestions or pics would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

I have a 66 x 88 x 16 building. Heated floor, drains, office area etc. My blding is wood built upon a concrete footing. I did price steel but at the time wood was more cost effective than steel due to the size of the shop. If I was to go at a mininum of 74 ft then the cost started to come down due to increase in size. Wood - you have a higher structure, steel you can a 1/12 pitch and not be so high in the air. Either way - you'll spend money and you'l enjoy the new building.

The quote did not include the floor and was only for the actual steel structure. I want to say it was in the thirties, but I would have to check. I am having a friend do the pad for us and we will do the framing, etc.
