Here in Idaho, the buildings have to be stout to support a high snow and wind load. I’ve helped put up buildings using traditional construction materials and also steel. There is a lot to be said for both types of materials and it’s my experience that a Capital Steel building is an excellent choice, structurally and financially. With winter temperatures averaging around 20 degrees and summer temps in the high 80’s, incorporating the required structural support for efficient heating and cooling systems was definitely an important part of the building design process. Not only did we have 4 feet of standing snow on the building’s roof last winter, we have 10 HVAC units up there. That’s a lot of weight! We never doubted the structural capacity of our building because the local construction team and the corporate team at Capital Steel designed the building to exceed local building codes.
We built our building as the weather and available funds permitted. It was important that we didn’t borrow more money than we had to, so we completed the project in phases. This was made easy by the team following our progress at Capital Steel.
It was a really neat experience to see this building go up. When building a project this size, it’s important to have a good company behind you like Capital Steel that’s what makes the difference.
