Can Olympia Steel Building Systems deliver a metal building anywhere in the USA?
Yes. Olympia Steel Buildings ships buildings to all 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii. Olympia also ships buildings to every country throughout the world. Call toll free 1.888.449.7756 for area specific information.

What are the buildings made of?
Olympia buildings are made of 100% U.S. commercial grade steel.

How secure is the framing?
Steel framed buildings are fastened together with bolts and screws. The connections remain secure because there is so little movement in the frame. Nailed together connections in traditional construction become loose due to shrinkage and warping of the wooden frame. Steel does not warp, shrink, or change with time so the connections remain secure. Since steel framing cannot burn like wood framing can, you may also benefit from lower costs for insurance.

What will it cost to ship the building to me?
Freight cost will vary with the weight of the steel building and the destination location. To save our customers money on shipping expenses we use a packing strategy called share-loading to ship as many steel buildings as possible in one full semi truck load.

Are the buildings painted?
Yes, the walls and trim are painted with a long-lasting factory-applied paint manufactured by AkzoNobel, the leading manufacturer of heavy duty, high performance protective coatings for steel. Olympia's durable paint coatings come in 12 environmentally friendly colors and have a 40-year warranty against chipping, cracking, peeling and blistering, and a 30 year warranty against chalking. These special high-tech paint coatings are classified as "cool paints" because they reflect up to 70% of the sun's rays, resulting in a cooler building and decreased energy costs.

Can I choose a paint color for my building?
Yes. You can choose from twleve wall colors and trim colors and nine standing seam roof colors, backed by a 40 year warranty.

Are the buildings insulated?
We offer many types of insulation with a range of R-values up to R-40 for you to choose from. Our technicians can help you determine what insulation type will best suit your steel building needs.

Can I put doors and windows on my steel building?
Yes. Our steel buildings features can be customized to incorporate doors, windows, ceiling lights, and more. Your sales representative will gladly help you design and customize the right building for you.

How long does it take to get my building delivered to me?
Because we design every metal steel building individually for each customer, delivery time varies from project to project. Your estimating consultant can give you a better idea of your delivery time after understanding your requirements.

Will my building meet local building codes and wind and snow load requirements?
Every Olympia building is engineered to comply with regional building codes, wind load (hurricane), snow load and seismic (earthquake) requirements. We will design your building to meet the requirements of your local building codes and provide permit drawings stamped and certified by one of our registered engineers. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the customer to verify all building codes with their local building or zoning department

Permit drawings include:

  • cover sheet with design loads and drawing index
  • anchor bolt drawings
  • column reactions
  • rigid frame elevations
  • side wall framing
  • end wall framing
  • roof framing, which includes sheeting drawings for side walls and end walls
  • detail drawings

NOTE: Foundation drawings are not included, however, they are available for small fee from an outside concrete engineering firm. If full-scale calculations are required, they are available for a small fee.
