Building You the Best: New Building Uses

Maybe it sounds dramatic to say, but when you think about building a new building there is really no end to the new building uses. At FS Construction Services, we have constructed our fair share of buildings over the years and each of them was its own, unique structure with its own, unique purpose. So while we like to think that any building can be anything you want, we also know that there are certain types of buildings that are better suited to specific tasks and needs than others.

Many Uses of Post Frame and Steel Buildings


Many of our clients choose to construct a post-frame, or pole barn, building on their property. These buildings have almost limitless size, color, and layout options. Often, these buildings work as part garage, part recreation, part storage, part horse barn, or a variety of other uses.

A quality post-frame building goes a long way. From a backyard shed to house your lawn equipment to a machine storage shed to house your agriculture equipment, these buildings scale up and down and in and out to fit your requirements. With help from our partners at Walters Buildings, we can build you anything from storage space to a retail space to a horse barn to a church.


Now just because we’re talking about steel doesn’t mean that all customizability is gone. Our partners at Sukup Manufacturing and Butler Manufacturing allow us to provide strong, tailored steel buildings to our clients. Whether you need a huge, clear span for large machinery, or you need warehouse or retail space for your business, we can get you the steel building you want in the timeframe you need.

No matter the type of building you choose, we will work closely with you to make sure that it not only suits your needs, but looks and feels the way you want it to. If you are considering a new building, please let Gateway FS Construction Services know. Give us a call at 866-551-3454, and let our specialists help you find exactly what you are looking for. We look forward to providing you the best customer service experience.

Project Profile: A Quick Build for a Long-Lasting Building

At FS Construction Services we know that a lot can happen in a week. Months, even years, can go into thinking about, saving for, and planning a new construction project and it really is amazing how after all that time, it can all come together in just a handful of days. When it comes to constructing post-frame buildings, it’s quite possible that the paperwork required to finalize building permits can take longer than the actual construction of the brand-new building itself (we may be exaggerating a little bit there, but, if you do need help with building permits, please let us know).

Versatile Post-Frame Building in Southern Illinois

One of the ­reasons so many of our clients choose post-frame buildings is not only because they can be constructed quickly, but because they are extremely versatile and customizable structures. This proved helpful this past April when our client was looking for a new storage structure. Mixing wood columns with 28-gauge steel, the 30’ x 40’ x 10’ Walters building went up quickly and efficiently. In addition to the structure itself, we also installed three 10’ x 8’ Raynor Showcase garage doors. These overhead doors are steel backed and insulated for maximum thermal efficiency.

With a large, clear span and wide, tall doors, our client will be able to use this new building for a huge variety of purposes and functions. Additionally, the structural integrity and weatherproofing of the building will provide twelve months of use – rain, snow, or shine.
