Flexible, Adaptable Metal
Every metal building is unique and custom to the needs of each owner; each can incorporate virtually any dimension, so meeting a company's special needs is not a high-priced add-on. A metal building's structural system provides maximum flexibility to create a variety of floor plan configurations: L's, U's, squares, rectangles and more. Column-free interior space allows complete freedom in the design of showrooms, offices, retail space and more.

In addition, the steel spans of a metal framing system are designed to easily reconfigure building areas, allowing quick accommodation for changes in function, ownership, equipment and regulations. Ease of expansion can be built right into the original design. Mechanical additions and interior electrical layout alternatives are also feasible because of the framing advantages. Metal buildings are highly fire resistant, allowing greater options in building size and layout.
