Once the order has been placed you will receive a personalized set of Approval Drawings and details about the order for review and approval by you and your customer. Next, the production process begins and you will be provided with Anchor Bolt & Final Construction drawings. Your custom metal building will then be delivered in the next 5 to 6 weeks.
