7 Ways to Save Now with a RHINO Building

How a RHINO Metal Building Saves You Money

Drawing indicating money saved with a RHINO building.When studying the overall picture, it is clear that a prefabricated RHINO building saves money from start to finish.

After all, there is more to the bottom line of a building project than material costs. 

You should also pay attention to the expenses associated with materials, labor, construction time, shipping, foundation, and more.

Here are seven ways a RHINO metal building kit cuts costs:

RHINO Pre-engineered Steel Buildings are Efficiently Designed

As a fabricated building material, steel produces a consistent building product with constant qualities.  Every column, rafter, girt, or purlin supports an exact and known load. 

High-tech engineering software quickly creates a design, which takes full advantage of the strength and stability of steel. 

The result is a strong, durable metal building package with the least possible steel.  There is no guesswork, no waste, and no over-engineering.

This efficient use of steel keeps a RHINO prefabricated building cost effective.

RHINO Offers Multiple Shipping Points

A RHINO metal building package ships to the job site by truck. 

Delivery charges are based on the distance from the factory to the job site.  The farther the truck travels, the higher the freight costs.

Fortunately, RHINO DIY metal building kits ship from multiple locations across the U.S., holding shipping costs to a minimum.

A RHINO Building Saves Money on Foundations

Steel possesses the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any building material. 

Since fewer components are needed to create an extremely strong structure, there is less stress placed on the foundation.  Therefore, steel buildings often require far less concrete for the foundation than other building materials. 

In addition, RHINO’s formed base trim saves even more on foundation costs— about $300 on an average-sized building.

A RHINO Prefabricated Metal Building Saves on Labor

With RHINO DIY metal building kits, the framing pieces come pre-cut, pre-welded, pre-punched, and clearly marked for easy identification.  Consequently, the project requires a smaller, less experienced building crew, saving money on framing erection. 

In fact, for small to mid-sized buildings, many do-it-yourselfers elect to erect their own structure with a few friends, saving even more.

A RHINO Metal Building Package Goes Up Fast

Everything in a steel building kit arrives at the job site ready to assemble.  There is no need to cut, weld, punch, or drill the framing pieces.  Everything is marked and ready to assemble with high-strength bolts and self-drilling screws. 

Customers report RHINO DIY metal building kits slash framing time by as much as 33%

Naturally, the faster the building goes up, the greater your labor savings.

Builder’s Risk Insurance Savings

The quicker a project completes, the less time the builder must pay builder’s risk insurance premiums.

Less Construction Waste with a RHINO Building System

Wood builders pay a premium to have leftover lumber and building material scraps hauled away for disposal. 

A RHINO prefabricated building creates very little waste. 

In addition, builders sell any leftover steel for cash at the closest recycling center, further offsetting construction expenses.


A RHINO prefabricated metal building is the smarter way to build.
