M-3 Enterprises employs routinely scheduled meetings to keep owners informed and plan for the next stages of construction. An M-3 Enterprises’ construction manager consistently reviews and manages costs, reports as needed and controls any cost surprises. Construction managers also work with the construction of agricultural buildings.
Agricultural buildings have the option of being built as steel buildings or as an engineered wood frame. Post-frame buildings feature large, solid sawn posts or laminated columns instead of wood studs, steel framing, or concrete masonry.
A post-frame building only requires a level building site to start construction. They are more quickly erected than other kinds of buildings. Due to their size, the posts and interlocking frames can handle much greater loads than stud-wall construction. It requires fewer structural materials which save time and money. Post-frame posts are spaced farther apart than studs and this creates large wall cavities for ample insulation. With the ability to add more insulation than steel buildings, it considerably lowers heating and cooling costs saving you money in the long run. But if you would like to have a concrete foundation and use helical piles with the foundation, that can be arranged too.
The outside of the building, or façade, can be customized to meet your decorative needs. The overhangs and mansards are customizable as well. These designs meet the high standards and aesthetic quality you look for.
Post-Frame Buildings vs Steel Buildings
Post-frames are just another option in building agricultural buildings. Another option is steel buildings. They too are used for agricultural buildings due to their versatile functions. Steel buildings are fire resistant, withstand tough weather, and are efficient both in construction and upkeep.
Both steel buildings and post-frames have their advantages and disadvantages. It all comes down to the timing, cost, and aesthetic want for your agricultural building. M-3 Enterprises’ construction managers are knowledgeable on all types of buildings and will advise you during the decision and construction process.
