50x80 steel building in Phoenix

Backstory. I'm owner and operator of tt-motorsports.com and have been renting and dreaming of my own home based shop since I started out in 2010. Fast forward to this past November. My wife and I found a perfect home and property to make the dream come true. Sold my rental home in California and got started on the long process. After 2.5 months received the permits and finally getting it going.

Specs are red iron building from bunger steel building. 50x80 16ft eves. 3 12x14 roll up doors and 1 man door on north wall. West wall will have 12x12 roll up door which will open to a 25x50 lean to. Slab is going to be 5inch thick over 4in ABC. Should be a very nice upgrade from my 2000 sq ft current shop that is crammed packed with 3 vehicles and all my equipment.

I will be doing general welding and fabrication. Production suspension and offroad kits. As well as suspension and roll cage fabrication.


Breaking ground this weekend. Concrete should be formed up and poured the end of this month. April 2019. So progress will be a little slow until building is delivered end of may. Myself. My wife. Parents and friends will be erecting the building ourselves.

A little before and after of weed and dirt mount removal. Burned the weeds. Going to cut up trees we removed and trimmed and will burn those once they dry out.

The labor quotes j got to erect the building was low end 25k. High end 32k. So I'll rent some equipment and hire a couple erectors on the weekend to help and do it ourselves.

one you get it all rolling could you share prices for components and the building itself for those who are jealous (yes) and would consider doing what you're doing as well?
please?

thank you,

So concrete guys are getting started on Friday. Any tips or things you guys suggest to make erecting building and assuring a nice flat slab?

I have a laser transit here I used to grade and am going to double check the forms once set. As well as triple check anchor bolt locations and level and heights as well to make sure putting up the steel is troublefree as it can be.

Any other suggestions or tips please feel free to post away.

Buy yourself a nice steel 200' tape for checking layout. Believe it or not nylon ones stretch enough to throw your layout. This seems like common sense but make sure whoever is helping you check the layout knows where to hold the tape. Like inside of form not outside and whether youre holding an inch or not. I did steel erection many years ago and you wouldnt believe how many building get poured wro g because of stupid little issues.

Double and triple check your bolt layout. I used to make a plywood bolt pattern/form that the jbolts would hang through with the nut on top for each column and mark on the forms or sonotube where it went. Then right after the pour you can screw the pattern down and wiggle the bolts down into the wet concrete.

If you hire erectors theyll have their own but if you dont, buy a couple spud wrenches (open end wrench with the long point on the other end). They will make your life so much easier when you start setting steel.

Thanks for the tips. I have plastic 300ft tape but will grab a steel one from a friend to check the anchor bolt layout. Concrete guys are doing anchor bolt layout so I'm sure I will have to move and fix those.

Also have a few spud wrenches for the job as well.

I'm having a pipe buried under slab for toilet in future. Are you saying do a drain pipe somewhere else in the shop?

Was planning on just having the sink and that drain through the wall and into the ground.

One question for you guys if I'm running a sub panel for electrical Inside the shop should I have them Install a grounding rod in the slab? And should I have them Install conduit for that panel or should just run the conduit from main panel up the outside wall into sub panel. Thinking in through slab would be cleaner install?
