Answer / Solution

The purchase of a building from Kirby includes the primary and secondary members, panels and trim, accessories and other building components. Also included are the necessary drawings that you will need for erection and for anchor bolt placement.

Answer / Solution

It usually takes from 6 - 10 weeks for delivery after the purchase order is signed. Delivery depends upon Kirby’s backlog and the complexity of your job. The Kirby sales team will provide an estimated delivery date upon order signing and finalize the delivery date once the job enters fabrication.

Answer / Solution

You may make modifications to your building anytime up until fabrication begins. A change order may incur a fee and/or delay fabrication. This depends upon how extensive the changes are and in what stage of production the change request is made.

Answer / Solution

Yes. Kirby will submit detailed design calculations and approval drawings to client for approval prior to fabrication of the building. All comments received from client on the approval drawings are incorporated by Kirby in the final erection drawings and in fabrication.

Answer / Solution

We do not quote unit rates. Kirby will design and price the building and sign the contract based on fixed lump sum price. The standard mode of payment is 20% down payment and balance by L/C.

Answer / Solution

The inquiry should be sent to the Kirby sales office in your region. Kirby will design and price each project based on the bid documents. Kirby will submit a proposal offer with detailed scope of supply, price, delivery and payment terms. When requested, proposal drawings with column reactions are provided separately.

Answer / Solution

Yes. Masonry walls can be tied to Kirby steel columns with ties for lateral support. In such cases, Kirby will design the structure with low horizontal deflections to prevent cracking of masonry. Sometimes consultants will detail the masonry wall to be isolated from the steel structure which will allow for more optimization of steel building and lower cost. When required, Kirby can also provide beams to support masonry walls above openings, etc. Kirby design will follow the requirements of the architectural drawings on any project.
