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).

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.

If you are interested in a new building project, or have an old building that could use renovation, contact the professionals at Gateway FS Construction Services now. You can depend on us to provide the best products and services at the best possible price. For more information on your next wood buildingpole barn or even steel building, contact us at 866-551-3454.

Breathing New Life Into an Old FS Building: Part 1

While there is always something fun about building a brand-new structure from the ground up, there is something equally satisfying about taking an old structure and making it feel new again. Sometimes this is in the preservation of something historic, and other times, it’s simply a matter of efficiency and cost. This is the first of two articles covering the extensive updates done to an old FS structure this past February as it transformed from something that looked the part of having weathered the test of time and seasons to something that looks like it could have been built yesterday.

The biggest and perhaps most obvious fix came in the form of the large, 24 x 16’ polymer doors that took up most of the front of the building. To be expected, these had yellowed and worn over the years, so our team replaced them with a new, double-sliding, metal door system. These new doors, matched to the original color of the structure, now provide a sharp, new focal point to the building. In addition to these doors, we also replaced another old, double sliding door with a 12 x 10’ Raynor Showcase steel-backed, insulated door and a Raynor Pilot ½ hp chain drive operator.

The second major fix came in the form of a new 22 x 22’ roof over the office area of the structure. This GR3 Fabral white, metal roof will last up to 60 years and provides a clean, new look for the top of the building.

Even with these additions, the building still wasn’t finished. However, with brand-new garage doors and a metal roof, it’s well on its way. If your building could use new doors or an updated roof, 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: Detached Garage & Storage Space

We all know the saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” And while we at FS Construction Services appreciate that call for patience, we understand that proper planning of projects is vital. Our pole and post-frame building team takes great pride in working closely with customers on the design, development and scheduling of each job. Such was the case on a recent project when we helped one of our clients go from empty lot to fully-constructed building while meeting their needs, requirements and timing.

After the concrete was poured, this new garage plus usable storage space took up a 24’ x 36’ x 10’ space. Not only spacious, however, this wood building was built to stand the test of time and the test of the elements. Covered in 26-gauge steel panels and built on a concrete stem wall, the structure also features two Raynor Showcase steel-backed insulated overhead doors and five Plyco insulated windows. This way, our client gets to enjoy a weather-protected building with the assurance that it will stay that way for a long time to come. Additionally, to provide the most function out of this structure, we installed 200-amp electric service and a 3’ overhang in front of the building with gutters.

While our team of experts, led by Tom Marcheski, worked quickly and efficiently to get the building completed, they were also careful to ensure this project, as with all our building projects, received the thorough, detailed craftsmanship. Thanks to our longtime partnership with Walters Buildings, our well-trained team knows the ins and outs of their structures and how to build them right.

If you are in the market for a new building, whether it’s residential, commercial, or agricultural, from the simplest design to highly customized projects, 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.

FS Construction Services Walters Storage Building

Project Profile: 48’ x 56’ Dual-Purpose Building

At FS Construction Services, we understand the necessity of being versatile. In many ways, a willingness to be versatile is what has allowed us to keep growing and serving our community for over 40 years. So we enjoy every chance we get to help someone else find and utilize every ounce of potential and functionality that their new structure or equipment offers.

This was exactly the case when a client wanted to make the most out of their new Walters building. This highly functional structure, which was placed on a pre-existing concrete slab, would not only serve as much needed storage space, but it would also double as the site of our client’s waterjet cutting and metal fabrication business. The 48’ x 56’ x 12’ building’s size and durability will help our client’s business to grow while still providing its function as a storage unit. We also installed a 10’ x 10’ Raynor ShowCase garage door which will allow our client to get plenty of material in and out of the building. Offering more than just size though, the garage door is steel backed and features thick insulation to increase thermal efficiency and prevent drafts and moisture.

This particular project was completed in just 10 days and met all the features and benefits that we emphasize on each of our construction projects. Recently, we got the chance to work with this client again recently when they decided to make modifications and functional updates. These changes allowed us to meet the client’s needs by installing three more 40” x 30” windows on the building, increasing the structure’s overall light intake and further reducing utility costs.

Whether you are looking to build a new building or improve upon an existing structure, let Gateway FS Construction Services know. With both steel and wood buildings for a wide variety of commercial, residential, and agricultural applications, we are happy to help our clients find the best possible building for their needs. You can 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.
