More and more, companies and even individuals are opting for more open settings in both commercial and non commercial building environments that steel buildings can provide. For many companies, open span technology makes it possible to streamline production facilities, with far less cost.
Utilizing a clear span environment puts all aspects of production in closer proximity to each other, saving time, materials and cost of production equipment. Open span metal buildings have great advantages for structures such as churches, stores, warehouses as well as residential out buildings.
In church construction, clear span construction makes it possible to have large open chapels and still divide the remainder of the building into exceptionally functional areas such as offices, classrooms and storage spaces. Not only are these areas easily incorporated into a clear span design, but considerations of such things as electrical, plumbing and heating can be more effectively addressed in most instances. Consideration for future modifications that are easily adaptable to existing service and utility infrastructure are much less of a concern, and more easily incorporated.
Clear span metal buildings are the ideal solution for many commercial businesses and stores. New construction methods that utilize the open span construction method, through the use of new material technologies, have greatly improved the free span distance that is available. The increase in distance is obtainable with an increase also in safety that is unmatched in years past with any other open area construction method.
This combination of open area and overall safety make it ideal for any kind of commercial business or warehouse facility. No more need to plan the interior design around column positions. Interior column positions in the past were one of the biggest obstacles designers faced when needing to arrange floor plan layouts for medium to large facilities.
With the new larger areas available in clear span construction, interior layout is no longer a problem to be overcome. These spaces can be modified more easily and effectively in the future if circumstances, desires or needs change.
