In general, portal frame units (typically low rise structures comprised of columns and horizontal pitched rafters) with an eaves height of 4m to 8m will cost roughly £150 – £200 per square metre. Buildings with higher eaves (10m – 13m) that require heavier frames can cost anywhere from £200 – £300 per square metre.For assistance with quotations from suppliers of industrial steel buildings, please fill out the form at the top of this page, and Expert Market UK will contact you.
