No other building method is quite as versatile and economical as post frame construction. This is because no other style offers the same amount of open, uninterrupted space. Post frame buildings are perfect for commercial use. From vehicle and equipment maneuvering to rows of shelving and displays with continuous sightlines. Additionally, post frame construction can offer maximum storage capabilities for your needs.
Ideal for agriculture, equestrian centers, warehousing, fire stations, civic buildings, schools, fellowship halls, post frame buildings often provide the best solution for just about any application. Plus for commercial and retail buildings, a post frame building will accommodate just about any need or function.
Post Frame Buildings are Perfect for Commercial Use
Post frame construction methods offer a range of advantages over more traditional building types. Some of these benefits include:
Since post frame construction requires fewer materials, less labor, minimal site preparation, and reduced time to complete, it is more cost effective. A similar sized steel or masonry structure is often more expensive.
Foundation Preparation is Eliminated
Because post frame buildings are supported by widely spaced vertical columns embedded in the ground and securely attached to the roof support and studding, the need for costly excavation and foundations is eliminated. As an additional bonus, due to post frame structures’ diaphragm design they can survive during high winds efficiently. No matter how severe the winds, post frame buildings transfer the forces evenly into the ground through the vertical columns while conventional structures often “shear off” at ground level during tornadoes and hurricanes.
Another benefit of post frame buildings is the ability to easily adapt or change the layout. If you require more or less space, the absence of weight-bearing supports and walls allows for maximum flexibility in design. It is also much easier to add an addition if needed.
Insulation application is much more uniform in a post frame building due to the large space between columns. This makes it easier to insulate effectively. As a result, post frame buildings consume less energy to heat and cool.
Nearly all elements of a post frame structure are recyclable or reusable. Many of the components for building a post frame commercial facility may be recycled or renewable materials.
Post frame commercial buildings are highly sustainable and ecologically “greener” than many traditional building types. This is mainly due to increased energy efficiency and the massive reduction in energy used to construct the building.
