Assemble your Kodiak Building in 3 Steps

Kodiak Steel Building warehouse

Quick Construction Solutions

When we moved our Ontario office last summer, we designed a new Kodiak building that could double as both our warehouse and office space.

With our project specifications, we customized our layout, added some options and accessories, and sent our project to manufacturing.

Once our design and 3-D (engineered) drawings were complete, we got our new Kodiak warehouse building up and running in 3 steps:


1. Foundation

With time between manufacturing and delivery, we poured and set the foundation, adding our anchor bolts to get ready for our steel building components.



2. Frame

Once the foundation was set (and anchor bolts secure), our building components arrived and we were able to assemble/attach the steel frame to our bolts immediately.



3. Finishing Touches

To finish, we added our insulated wall and roof panels, garage opening, walk doors, and windows. Voila! Our new Kodiak building was up and running, complete with electrical.

Within weeks, we went from a bare build site to a brand new insulated warehouse/office space that will protect from Ontario’s all-season weather.

What to Expect when Buying a New Steel Building

Whether buying your first prefab building or a seasoned building pro, here’s a quick overview of what to expect (and what to include in your project planning) when deciding on a new steel building.

Get a Free Quote

Don’t fall for fake clearance sales, or other offers that don’t provide you with an exact price. Get your numbers up front. We offer a free, no-obligation quote (with options, shipping, and delivery included) so there are no hidden costs.

By requesting a quote, you are not obligated to buy, and we don’t believe in pushy sales tactics. Our goal is to get you the building you’re looking for, at the best price. 

Project Planning

Kodiak Steel Building Experts have decades of experience and are available to assist you throughout each phase of your project. Our planning expertise can help you save unnecessary construction time and building costs.

Have a delivery deadline in mind? Buying a prefabricated steel building is cheaper and faster than traditional construction, however you will still need to plan for the time it takes to have your building designed, manufactured, and shipped.

Check out our steel building timeline to make planning your new building project even easier.

Pro Planning Tip: Take into account your total lead time for building completion. This will allow you to set the deadline to order your building by so you can avoid any delays.

For example, if you order your building late in the season, and live in an area with winter conditions, you will have to wait until Spring to prepare the foundation and erect your new building.

Pre-Engineered Drawings

Once the building specifications have been agreed upon and finalized, we’ll create pre-engineered drawings of your building for you. This offers a clear visual of what your new building (layout) will look like, as well as all dimensions, sizing, etc.

Bonus: With these drawings, you can obtain any building permits needed faster and easier. It also helps to reduce building time by serving as your project roadmap. 

 Steel Prefabrication

From the drawings, we move into having your steel building components built to specification using industry-leading fabrication technology.

As an authorized Robertson Building Systems dealer, we have access to manufacturing warehouses across North America. This allows us to have your building ready for delivery within a matter of weeks.

Shipping & Delivery

After your building components are completed, we’ll ship your building direct to you …anywhere in Canada or the USA. We use reputable shipping companies, and all shipments are insured.

Don’t worry about any paperwork, customs, duties, or taxes, we handle it all.  You just have to be on site to receive your new building.

Pouring the Foundation

A solid foundation is essential to long-term building performance. If you are able, you can do this yourself, or we can have the Kodiak team come out and pour the foundation for you.

The time it takes to complete the building foundation phase will depend on the size of your building, the season, and which concrete pouring service you use.

Assembling the Steel Frame

Every one of our steel frames are designed individually and manufactured specifically to meet the requirements of your building.
Depending on your budget and building size, you can choose from Robertson’s patented Clear Span, Multi-span, Lean-to or Long Bay steel trusses.

No matter which steel frame you choose, all components are precision-crafted to fit together perfectly, making it faster and easier to assemble your new building.

With over 150 years experience in the steel fabrication industry, Robertson’s patented steel-frame building system provides you with precision-crafted components that guarantee ease-of-assembly and long-life performance.

 Erecting your New Building

Once the steel frame is up,  you can install your customized single-skin or insulated metal panels and your building is ready to go!

You can assemble the frame and panels yourself, or request Kodiak’s building erector services and our team will come out to your site and put your building up quickly and efficiently.

Pro Tip: Don’t wait...when building, leave yourself extra time for any unforeseen delays.

Customize today and you can have your new building up in weeks! Speak with a Kodiak Steel Building Expert today to get started.

Start Today to Have your Building Up For Year End

Don’t Let The Good Weather Get Away!

We love August’s hot sunny days and balmy nights, it’s the perfect building weather! But August also means that Fall is just around the corner.

Fall signals the home stretch for those looking to have their building up before Christmas. Waiting any longer, and you may have to push project completion until Spring 2019 or later.

Planning for Your New Building

Your total project completion time will depend on a few factors; the size of your building, expected timeline, project deadlines, building permits, and any additional services and contractors you will be using.

For those not living in an area with year-round sunshine and mild temperatures, ordering your building in August-September is the latest you should wait to ensure your building is up and running before the ground freezes.

Steel Building Timeline

To help you plan, our building timeline will give you a realistic view of the time you will need from customization to building delivery so you can avoid any unnecessary delays.
