Metal shed require vapour barrier?


Does a metal shed or, in this case, a community hall, require a vapour barrier as you would in a wood structure. The metal is the outer skin and I see the inside is drywalled and some wood panels. If I were to remove them for up-grading purposes, I think I will find lacking insulation and no vapour barrier.
Again, should this type of building be treated as any other wood framed building?
Thanks
