PUBLIC and CHURCH
Serving the building needs of America's churches, schools and local, state or federal government is a challenge. A church in Tennessee (above) employs a 60-foot clearspan structure with a specially designed hip-roof to accommodate a spacious open sanctuary. Wood and drywall were used to cover the massive steel beams that meet in the center and support the heavy, built-up roof system. Outside, the application of brick gives the feeling of strength and permanence.
Secondary framing is created from rolled steel coated with a red-oxide primer finish in gages from 12 to 16 to provide an extremely rigid, and corrosion resistant structure. The following elements are formed as secondary framing:
Girts (walls) & Purlins (roof): These members run the length of the building providing rigidity, and a sturdy skeleton to attach the sheeting. They are rolled from steel coils 12,14 or 16-gauge steel, or thicker if needed. All girts and purlins are pre-punched for ease of assembly.
Eave Struts: This is a rolled member formed into a "C" to match the pitch of the roof. The eave strut is also made of 12, 14, or 16-gauge steel.
Facings as Vapor Barriers
The main function of facings is to act as a vapor barrier. While a vapor barrier may not necessarily be able to stop the flow of water vapor, it does an excellent job of minimizing the rate and volume of the flow. This prevents moisture from accumulating within the insulation blanket and the structure, which translates into consistent thermal values and lower heating and cooling costs.
Facings intended to serve as vapor barriers should be installed on the inner, heated surface of the insulation, where vapor pressure is the highest. This helps in preventing vapor from reaching the cooler air and condensing.
VAPOR BARRIERS PREVENT VAPOR FROM REACHING COOLER AIR AND CONDENSING.
Pre Engineered Metal Building
A pre engineered metal building is the obvious choice for a church or other type of meeting place. You may have noticed these structures since they are quickly becoming the "standard" in constructions methods. When you are looking for a cost effective way to meet your building needs, you should certainly think about a steel building. A pre-engineered metal building takes the risk out of putting yourself and your organization into debt. It is easy to identify the advantages in a pre-engineered metal building.
You could delay development for years while you line up funding, but why? Some choose to rent space from other property owners in lieu of the responsibility of new construction. The problem with this situation is you only have access to your meeting place around someone else's schedule. After taking into account and dismissing these ideas, take some time to think about talking to a steel metal building manufacturer.
As property and construction capital become harder to obtain, new solutions become ever more imperative. A pre-engineered metal building may perhaps not be part of the dream you have held for your club, association or church, however that shouldn't stop you. Some of the greatest things come in unlikely packages and we sometimes miss out when we disregard them too quickly.
Metal Shop Building
Renting a retail shop can be a risky commitment. Landlords and property management companies can be hard to deal with. Rent hikes, neglect of upkeep and deliberate refusal to service facilities are a few problems commonly encountered from renters. Owning your own metal shop building is ideal, even if you are just starting a new business, a metal shop building is a great asset for your retail or personal building investment. Make an inquiry with a steel building manufacturer to get the details about construction. Ownership is an excellent way to invest once and save for many years to come.Thank you for visiting Louisiana Metal Buildings.
