When a commercial space is planned, there are a lot of professionals who step in to make the end result come to life, and a commercial framing system construction service is usually one of them. Take a look at some of the variables that can affect a commercial framing system's design.
Local Building Codes
Local building codes can have a major effect on how the framing is done. For example, there may be local codes that regulate commercial framing height or width in comparison to surrounding buildings. Before getting started on a framing system, the construction service hired will take the time to examine any local codes and work with the architectural design team to make sure all codes are followed.
Structure's Functional Requirements
The function of a commercial space will have a lot to do with the framing system that goes into place and how it is designed or laid out, or even what material is used. A good example of this is the fact that most medical facilities are designed, framed, and completed with the common core goal of functionality in mind. A radiology facility may not have metal framing, for example, because too much surrounding metal can affect the equipment.
Available Funding for the Project
It is a given that the available funding for a project is going to affect pretty much every aspect of the build. However, the available funding will have a major effect on the framing part of the process for a few reasons, including:
- Funding will affect what materials will be used for framing,
- Funding will affect how large the framed structure will be
- Funding will affect how quickly the job can be done
Aesthetic Attributes Desired By the Owner
When a company hires a commercial framing system construction service for help with building a new structure, a designer will work with an architect and the client to track down the details of what the client wants the building to look like. Aesthetics refers to the overall end appearance of the building when it is complete, which can only be accomplished if the underlying framework is properly designed and completed.
Time Allotment Available
How much time the construction has to work with can also affect a framing system design. For instance, if there is not a lot of time available to complete the entire project, the framing may have to be a little more simplified, especially if there are funding limitations and only a certain crew size can be logically employed.
