WIFI in a metal building

I have a customer that would like WIFI throughout a metal building. Each wall is double metal. Access points will probably need to be outdoor rated. I am concerned with the reflectivity of the metal walls. What access points would you suggest and where would you install them to provide the best service? Below is a sketch of the building.

I can see this is an older post..but I am curious of the outcome. My recommendation was to centralize the APs in each of the sections of the building..slight offset as well.. Maybe a little something like this?(red circles would be AP placement) I'd have to assume runnning hard line to each AP was not painless..

We have not installed it yet.

Would like to see the end result stats if the project ends up completed!
