On new construction of a steel building, what's typical siding height?

I know - there's likely loads of answers. But in GENERAL, on a new steel building, what would you say the height of each siding piece might typically be? What's more common these days? Aluminum or vinyl?

Trying to identify the height of this building.

I counted about 23 pieces from the base to the peak.

THANKS!

I can't get a clear view of the panels. If it's corrugated steel they will be 24" wide [with 2" overlap] If it's the factory painted panels - they are 3' wide.

You are right. There is no standard height for a steel building.

It looks like you cropped the photo. In the original is there anything else in the photo about the same distance away you might know the height. A walk in door, a car... With that if the building is 2 1/2 doors high. The most common door height is 80" so a 2 1/2 door high building would be about 200" high.
