The Initiative

Known for delivering high-quality steel and metal buildings from carports and garages to barns, Viking Steel Structures keeps renovating its website and products & plans to provide the best service to clients. However, we wanted a more tangible way for customers to design and customize their metal building without hanging on long conversations with the customer care team.

Our Solution: 3D Designing Tool

With the help of the 3D estimator tool, customers can virtually interact with the buildings, make custom tweaks, and prepare their own unique designs. This will allow our customers to make more informed decisions.

With this tool, clients can design the metal building and visualize it in their space. How? Let’s see.

  1. First, enter your zip code.
  2. Next, design & add custom features to your metal building.
  3. Finally, click on ‘View In Your Space’ in the top right corner of your screen.
  4. You will receive a QR code that you can open on your tablet or phone that supports AR (Augmented Reality).
  5. Alternatively, you can click on ‘Send Link’ and enter your phone number/email to receive the link.

Enhancing Client’s Experience With Our Innovative 3D Estimator Tool

Our metal building designing tool can customize each product. Let’s delve into this with some examples for a better understanding.

3D Garage Builder

On the right side, you can see a range of options to choose from. These options include roof style, installation surface, width, length, leg height, sides and end walls, types of panels, number of doors and their types, frame, windows, and colors.

Once you are done designing, you can request a quote. All this gives our customer a real-time view of their garage building.

3D Carport Builder

For clients on a budget, steel carports are one of the simplest, quickest, and most affordable solutions for parking vehicles. Not only that, we also have the option of a utility building, which is a combination of a carport and a shed. In this way, you get parking and storage space.

You can add left/right sidewall panels from 1 ft. to 9 ft., and front/back gables from open, half enclosed to fully enclosed.

3D Barn Builder

Traditional barns have been the essence of American farms. With our 3D estimator tools, you can create custom metal barns for livestock shelters, hay sheds, and farm tools & machinery. You can opt for different colors on the roof, trim, door, and wainscot.

From size to walls, everything is customizable. This makes it easy for customers to plan and play with designing tools until they reach the final design concept. From here, you can either request a quote or save your design for future use.
