Ya A buddy of mine dad bought one said concrete work that had to be done was crazy wall panels have to lock in formed channel ,see if you can get plans first then you will see the process concrete comp charged him a fortune for the job also be prepared to assemble about 10,00 nuts& bolts also insulating is a nightmare & costly for the insul kit.I would highly recommend wood structure with metal cladded walls & roof for shop.

Put one of these up for a guy. Pails & pails of nuts & bolts! All the bolts cannot be tightened until the entire building is up, then go back and snug them all up.
Concrete slab with channel to set the building sides in better be bang on.
Insulating is best done with spray foam. $$$$$$
We've stuck with putting up pole sheds & wood steel buildings since that one. Better bang for the buck.

I recommend getting a building through Goodon Industries from boisevain, I used to put these up with a crew from winkler, they are quick and easy to put up and I thought the prices were pretty good, got my garage through them, depending what size you can have it up and ready for you to get working on the concrete in less than a week, we were putting up 60x120x18 shells in 3 and a half days

i researched same last fall.

price was no great heck versus stick frame,
thousands of nuts,bolts to deal with and worst was couldn,t find anyone willing to make the special concrete work needed.

just do not see a lot of them around so must be a sign of not as great as they appear to be in their marketing.

I used to be a foreman for a crew through Goodon's. For example, we used to do a 42x60, fully insulated, in 16 working hours. Also, if you are planning on using tin on the outside, keep your building measurments to a number that's divisible by 3', since sheets of tin are 3' wide. It's less labor, less cutting, seals better, and looks much better then having a 1' "sliver" sheet on the wall.

On paper, Goodon's looks to be 10-15% more expensive then other places like Co op, McDiarmid, etc, but in the end they are actually cheaper. I know lots of people that went through Co op because they thought it was cheaper, and ended up getting raped for labor because the customer would have to hire a crew that charged by the hour, and had no idea what they were doing and took 3 times longer to do.

Goodons are the best at what they do, theres a reason they work all over Canada and the US. They average 800-1000 buildings a year, and have around 20 crews. It's all they do, and they're great at it. Just my $.02.

I'm guessing that Tinman will recommend Contempora Steel. They're a Wpg company and do good work. Here is a link to their webiste.

Which crew did you run and how long ago? I worked for J L contracting for almost 2 years than went to B & D Builders for 3 years, both were based out of winkler putting up sheds for Goodon, and both guys I worked for started under John Wolfe, been almost 2 years since I put up a shed for Goodon tho

Armstrong Construction. Total of 6 years, supervisor for the last 3 years. I haven't worked full time for them for almost 4 years now. But help out for fun when I'm sittind around. I miss the job a lot of times, it was fun. Last spring I went to Dryden to help put up a 60x160(?). 16 windows, 4 overheads, 5 walk in doors, and a divide wall. We did it in 22 working hours with 6 guys, 2 of which were greenhorns lol

If you get in a pickle upon your decision and need a proffesional installer, I know a guy!! Called him and his company in when the Bio-Diesel plant was being built. Guys who sold us the building couldn't figure out how to put it together until Terry came along!! Great guy, Great work!!

Ah yes, he's running an 8 man crew now right? I miss it too sometimes but I definitely don't miss slappin those 30+ foot roof sheets on in the wind, I'd have to say that was the worst part for me
