Need someone to remove the existing lock, drill hole in door (through metal sheet, using a bi metal hole saw) and also drill hole on frame to install the striker plate. Both the door frame and the door have a metal sheet. The deadbolt will be provided. I couldn't still past the metal plate since I don't have the hole saw, the drill bit I had was too small (see photo)

No offers were made on this task.
As MG said the metal in the door and steel frame confirm it’s a fire door and deadbolts contravene fire safety rules. Rather fit a Lockwood 001 deadlatch with a metal frame strike. Handymen will fit these deadbolts as they don’t know the laws but it’s not advisable.
This looks like a unit and you can't put a deadbolt on units due to the fire regs
Is this for a unit or house
