To assemble your pre-engineered metal building you will need some tools. These include:

  1. Wrenches to tighten the bolts in the framework
  2. A cordless drill to drive the self-tapping screws
  3. A long level to ensure that the components are straight
  4. A long screwdriver or a spud wrench to line up the bolt holes on the main beams

If your building is large enough, you may also need a crane lift or a scissor lift.

You will need additional tools and equipment if you choose to pour your building’s foundation yourself. Consult a local foundation engineer to ensure that your foundation will meet your region’s standards before starting it.
