  • Post-Frame Buildings: A Light-Commercial Mainstay

    In this era of growing interest in all things sustainable and cost-effective, post-frame construction and its primary material, wood, are gaining favor in construction, including in the light-commercial market. As such, post-frame building systems are now an application of choice for low-rise, light-commercial buildings such as office and municipal buildings because of their energy efficiency, versatility, and durability. This course will examine post-frame building systems including their versatility, range of applications, structural features and key performance characteristics. Take the course.
