Convenience Store Construction
We offer options that are great for building your convenience store for a variety of reasons.
Using light-gauge steel for our convenience store construction projects provides several benefits:
- Stronger Framing – we use 16-gauge steel for our projects compared with our competitors who often settle of cheaper, 20-gauge steel
- Fast Framing – we pre-build the framing in panelized sections in our climate-controlled facility during the sitework phase of the project. This allows us to erect your framing like an erector set saving you weeks of stick-framing in the field.
- Cost Savings – as mentioned above, our pre-built framing process will save you on your overall construction timeline which saves you money.
Advantages of Pre-Built
Light-Gauge Steel Framing Panels
We have accumulated over 40 years of experience in the engineering of framing structures for building construction projects.
Using light-gauge steel is a great foundation for your convenience store building that will serve you well. As a standard, we use 16-gauge steel which varying stud widths of 6” or 8” – depending on the snow/wind load factors in your area. Our engineering team are experts at designing our building.
Save Time & Money
Our approach to framing is to pre-build your framing in our climate protected facility producing 8’ panelized sections.
The panels are shipped to your jobsite and go up like an erector site much faster than traditional stick-framing. This saves you time, and money because your project gets done faster.
We fabricate and construct the wall framing sections in jigs according to precise measurements.
We stay away from expensive building systems which increase the building complexity and cost, often with little to no actual benefit.
We can use a couple different parapet configurations to vary the look of the building without breaking the bank.
We use parapets to give the building vertical and horizontal dimensionality and they are very affordable. The less money you have to pay on your monthly loan payment, the faster you reach profitability.
Convenience Store Customizations
Our specialty is constructing customized convenience store projects for our clients. We strive to deliver high-quality structures at competitive prices.
We have accumulated over forty years of experience in the engineering of steel-framed structures and specialty construction projects.
Our designs are kept simple on purpose. Our simple designs keep the price of the building down, and get you into profitability faster. We use parapets as a simple and cost effective way to add pizzazz and flair to the building.
We try to limit our design options as much as possible, because that translates into an engineering savings to you
While sitework is happening, we are building the framing. We call this “parallel processing”.
Our buildings go up like an erector set. Our framings are manufactured in 8’ panelized sections which makes our framing assembly fast.
The building is sturdy – really overengineered according to some. We only use 16 gauge steel, which is very strong.
Some buildings are structurally sound, but just need an external face lift. With our parapet systems, we can dress up an old-tired building without breaking the bank.
