3) Automotive & Implement Dealerships
First impressions are important. Every dealership wants to showcase its products and services in the right light.
Throughout the Midwest, automotive and implement dealerships are turning to pole barn construction.
Post frame buildings use specially engineered, clear-span trusses that do not require interior load-bearing walls. In other words, you can exhibit the newest sports car or heavy-duty truck in a wide-open showroom.
Nowadays, 100’ trusses are double-ply and made out of high-grade lumber. A higher grade means that the truss can carry more stress; thus, eliminating the need for stud walls. You can maximize your building space without sacrificing the structural integrity of your pole barn.
With low maintenance and hassle-free construction, your mini-storage building will be complete in no time. Check out our pole barn gallery to see what’s in store for your business.
5) Warehouse & Industrial Facilities
Heavy manufacturing companies are the backbone of the U.S. economy. And post frame buildings are the backbone of their business.
Heavy manufacturers are capital intensive, meaning their operation requires a lot of machinery to produce their products.
So, why are these businesses (e.g., oil and trucking) turning to post frame construction for their warehouse needs?
It circles back to the use of clear-span trusses and a wide array of dooring options.
These building components, along with pole barn height, allow for a flawless flow of the following areas essential to their operation:
If your industrial business requires ample space and accessibility, then a commercial post frame building is the best route for you.
When driving through a small town, you can’t help but notice the overwhelming sense of community.
People are walking in and out of downtown businesses. Children are running around the playground outside of their school. Annual festivals are taking place around the city hall or courthouse square. Fundraiser meals are benefitting public safety personnel (e.g., volunteer firefighters).
What do all of these buildings have in common? They’re a place where the community can come together to enjoy and support one another.
Make the right choice and spend your taxpayer dollars on a post frame building. Trust us; you won’t regret your decision.
Post frame construction is relatively inexpensive compared to other construction methods (e.g., stick-built or steel buildings) due to:
Reduced labor costs
Fewer materials needed for construction
Shorter time frames (from start to finish)
Minimized project delays
Building a municipality is a major responsibility. These public buildings represent your community. It’s why local officials are turning to post frame builders for a structure their citizens and passersby will appreciate.
Note: Your professional builder should have the resources to help you navigate the various steps of building a new pole barn.
From consultation and design to engineering and construction, including their expertise in zoning, permitting, and financing. Their guidance or lack thereof can make or break your building project.
Which Commercial Post Frame Building Will You Choose?
As you can see, there are several types of commercial buildings that can meet your expectations and business’ needs. The design flexibility, durability, sustainability, and cost-savings that pole barn construction offers are second to none.
However, no one ever said that designing and developing a new commercial building will be easy. Those who take the time to familiarize themselves with the steps involved can have a memorable and rewarding experience.
