Metal Building Construction Details
Often, we find customers think designing their custom metal building will be the easy part, and the actual construction process will be the hard part. A lot of times, they actually find the opposite! Worldwide Steel building systems are designed to be so easy to put together that once your building kit arrives, there won’t be any surprises. As long as you’re prepared for delivery of your building kit, the rest is simple.
Your metal building system will be accompanied by a step-by-step construction guide, but we also want you to feel comfortable with the building construction process before it begins. Worldwide Steel Building experts take care of almost everything before your metal building components get to you – from making sure our building systems are foolproof to researching building code laws and snow and wind loads in your area. But once the building components are off the truck, they’re in your (capable) hands.
That’s why we provide a variety of resources before you buy. So you can learn more about who we are as a metal building manufacturer, your customization options during the building design process, what you can expect from all our building components (including roof panels, the metal panels that make up sidewalls and endwalls, girts, purlins, anchor bolts and more) and the steps you’ll need to take during construction.

- Building Details
What sets Worldwide Steel metal building systems apart from the rest? It’s everything from our fully-customizable rigid frame systems to our industry-leading 50-year structural warranty to our unmatched clearspan options to the easy nine-step process of DIY building construction.
- Open Web Truss System
Our structural steel truss design is strong, customizable and long-lasting. Built with American steel on precision jig fitting tables, every truss is pre-welded and pre-punched at our factory, all the way down to the purlins and girts. This saves you time and anxiety during the building project.
- Rigid Frames
Our rigid frame steel building systems are designed to meet your specific building code laws and optimized to provide you the highest quality product at the most economical price. All designed with the creative DIYer in mind, you can customize your building size, accessories, the colors of your metal panels and roof panels and more, and still know you’re purchasing a high-strength, long-lasting, load-bearing, ASTM-approved steel frame.
- Construction Technique
The Worldwide Steel building construction process is easy because we take the time to ensure you’re delivered building components that fit together perfectly. No matter what your building design, Worldwide Steel is the manufacturer. There’s no middle man, which means we’re confident you’ll be able to erect your building even with no previous construction experience. Our simple metal truss and panel system almost guarantees it.
- Steel Building Assembly Process
As long as you have a way to get your steel building components off the delivery truck and hoisted into the air (meaning maybe a couple extra sets of hands or a weekend rental of a small forklift, but no need to hire a general contractor or other professionals), all you need is some elbow grease and the tools you already have in your toolbox. The steel structures are pre-built as much as possible at our manufacturing centers before delivery, so you know the structural system itself is sound. You’ll need to hoist the trusses, layer on the sidewall and endwall metal panels, then add on the roof panels, header, and any additional accessories like doors, downspouts, louvers, windows and skylights.
Worldwide Steel Buildings are quick to erect, easy to assemble and built to last. No matter which building size, design or complexity you choose, the framing members, wall panel connection and secondary framing options are roughly the same. We’ll walk you through it all, from roof slope options to exterior wall color choices.
