Bonding in an all steel building


An all steel detached garage will soon have electricity installed. Are there any special bonding requirements beyond what is common and usual, simply because of the steel nature of the building? Steel posts, trusses, purlins, tin skin, etc.

Will probably utilize metal conduit/boxes (versus plastic). I'm assuming the normal methods are sufficient...but not sure.

Structural steel needs to be bonded. Metal siding does not.

Structural steel: bonded at each outlet? Or one time only?
