50 x 100 Metal Building IconAn All-Purpose Structure

What would you do with 5,000 square feet of space?  Whatever the application, a 50’ x 100’ metal building provides room to dream big— and succeed big.

50 x 100 Metal Building: Adaptable for Most Businesses

A 50’ x 100’ metal building runs twice as long as its width.  Like the 40’ x 80’, this 2:1 ratio makes a 50’ x 100’ steel building a great choice for businesses requiring two areas of operation— one for the customer and one for production.  However, the 50’ x 100’ delivers over 56% more space.  Most printers, bakers, decorators, parts dealers, sign makers, retail stores, florists, and restaurants use this “behind-the-scenes” building division.

  • A casual restaurant with bars— like Applebee’s or Chili’s— generally averages about 5,000 square feet.  In fact, about 75% of all food service structures are 5,000 square feet or less.  Ceilings for restaurants at this size usually top 12’ or more.
  • Although we sometimes think of office buildings as towering skyscrapers, over 50% of all office buildings are actually 5,000 square feet or less in size.
  • Most people assume all warehouses are mega-sized caverns of merchandise.  In reality, about 44% of all warehouses are small business operations of 1,000 – 5,000 square feet.
  • Larger farms and ranches often need 5,000 square foot metal barns— or even larger.  For example, a walk-through dairy barn commonly measures in the 5,000 square foot range.
  • Over 50% of all healthcare buildings are 5,000 square feet or less.
  • Depending on the altar size and the type of seating, a church sanctuary of 5,000 square feet could seat 250-300 people.  The strength of steel allows tall church buildings with towering cathedral ceilings, too.
  • Dance studio professionals recommend about 100 square feet per student, so a 5,000 square foot building would accommodate 80 or more students, depending on the administration, restrooms, and locker room areas.  A really first-class studio requires ceiling heights of 20’ – 24’.
  • These are only a few of the hundreds of ways a 5,000 square foot metal building may be used.
