Post Frame Construction

Post-Frame &
Pole Barn Construction

Construction done the modern way

Post-frame buildings are pre-engineered wood-frame construction systems. The walls feature laminated columns, also called posts, instead of wood studs, steel framing or concrete masonry. Post-frame buildings have evolved greatly from the early days when agricultural buyers built “pole barns” and “pole sheds.”

Post-frame structures are more quickly erected than other kinds of buildings. Because the larger posts and the interlocking frame can handle greater loads than stud-wall construction, fewer structural materials are needed – which saves on material and installation costs. Post-frame buildings transfer loads to the ground through the posts, which are typically embedded in the ground or surface-mounted to a concrete pier or masonry foundation.

Also, because posts are spaced farther apart than studs, there are fewer interruptions in insulating materials. Post-frame buildings feature an exceptionally large wall cavity for ample insulation, which allows for lowered heating and cooling costs throughout the year.

With its roots in the agricultural market, post-frame is now the construction method of choice for any number of commercial, retail, industrial, residential, religious and public building needs. Due to the nature of its design and many external façade options, post frame may be customized to provide virtually any look.

In addition to new construction, post-frame is also an effective and versatile choice for building additions and remodeling projects.
