The technical advances and product innovations in many areas of the
construction industry during the past decade are truly incredible. But as a

construction is the complex, technical process of specifying the thermal
envelope for metal building systems.

| Ask the Expert Questions containing 'OFFICE' |
| Q: My husband and I are preparing to build our very first home. Due to the fact that we raise animals for a living, we have planned to erect a medium sized metal building before beginning construction of the house. Rather than continue paying rent, we have toyed with the idea of closing off a portion of the "shed" into a living area while the house is being built. Regardless, the shed will have to be insulated and heated/air conditioned and plumbing run for the animals and our office (a small kitchen would just end up being a bonus!) Do you believe this is a feasible alternative, and if so, what are some of the considerations when undertaking a project like this? By the way, we live in San Antonio, so the climate is very temperate.
A: Mrs. Royer : In a word ? Absolutely ! BUT, be sure you clear everything with local building code compliance
PRIOR spending much money--also any deed or neighborhood restrictions. Can Temp living quarters be
allowed ? Looking to the future, can such remain in place to serve your business needs AND perhaps, down the road become the "maids quarters" or even for elderly parents detached housing? Get every approval you can so that value is maintained--then, build it.
My own home is steel purlins and deck--on Cols. and masonry walls---with hung acoustical ceilings that give me immediate access to running new wiring, plbg. pipes etc. anywhere without damage or problems.
Insulate that area, drywall or wood panel the walls, hang the ceiling and ...
| Q: What is the best method to do an office buildout inside of a metal building? Would it be metal studs attached to the inside of the building with a gyp board finish? Do you happen to know of where I can find a wall section showing this this detail, the connection to the building in particular. Thanks for the help. |
Assuming non-structural walls (no mezzanine) typically we use a 1” metal furring channel against the outside girts and 3.5” steel stud framing, 16” o.c. for the interior walls with 5/8” gyp over. Any local engineer should be able to provide you with those details and they would typically be part of your permit submittal anyway.
If the walls are structural and designed to support a second floor deck our framing would depend on the loads used on the second floor, the span needed for the largest rooms and which crews we might have available for framing. We might use steel framing or wood depending on the cost of the framing package.

| Q: i built a 6000sf metal building i divided it to 4 1500sf units i did a 7' high store front and 3x5 fixed glass around the other 3 sides i also built out 2 of the units as offices all the windows get condensation on them on the inside and mold has started to grow on the dry wall does the building need roof vents for air flow? any advice? |
You have a fairly complicated question. The first thing I would do is confirm the windows are not leaking or the sill track is not holding water.
Next if condensation is the issue then, is the unit occupied? If not run the a/c even though the unit is empty. This will lower the realitive humidity inside the space.
Condensation normally will occur on the warm moist side of the building. In a southern cliamate that is typically the outside not the inside.
If this is occuring in the area where there are no offices then you may need to add ridge ventilation. Recently constructed buildings have not been installing ridge vents in Florida because there have been none with Florida Product approval. So despite the fact they...
| Q: I have a 100x150' metal building which was built as a health club in 2000. Can we retrofit the building to add additional height to the building? We would like to bring in bounce-house type play equipment and need at least 16 foot ceilings. Our peak is 16 ft but many areas are offices, etc., with lower ceilings. We are zoned 2 story commercial so the question is simply if the walls and ceiling can be added to. Thanks. Sue |
This is probably the single most difficult thing you can do to a pre-engineered metal building. It is typically easier and less expensive to add to the existing building with a taller portion.
That said anything can be done if you are willing to spend enough money. I would get with a local "design build" metal building contractor and discuss you needs and let them provide some options to you.
Everyone is pretty hungry these days so this would be the time to get a great deal.

| Q: We are renting an office building with a metal roof / metal trusses with brick veneer siding. The area above our ceiling and the metal roof is not insulated. Our heat and air bills are crazy. The owner says insulation is not necessary - what do your experts say???
Will be waiting for your answer. Thanks! |
I say "balogna" it is however to late to insulate the metal roof without a lot of gymnastics and $$$. The easiest thing for you at this point is to get a minimum of 6"-10" of batt insulation above your acoustical ceiling tile. The batts can be ordered precut to the size of your tile, 2x2 or 2x4.
If the building does not have ridge vents, add them, you can also add fans in the walls. I actually perfer adding intake fans that blow air into the building in leiu of the traditional exhaust fans. Exhaust fans if not balanced correctly will create countless roof leaks by reducing the pressure within the building.
Intake fans with ridgevents and fixed louvers at the worst will add a positive pressure and not affect the roofs perf...
| Q: Have metal building that we built offices in. Have no ventilation and have no way to put soffit vents on building. How should we properly vent building. Can put ridge vent on but with no soffit how do we get air inside to move hot air out ridge vents? |
Yes you can put a ridge vent on without soffit vents. It won't be as efficient but metal buildings are typically not completely air tight. So the ridge vents will help, additionally if you have access to the gables you can add fixed louvers near the peaks of the gables. This will create an air intake for the ridge vent(s) and should induce a nice chimney effect for the hot air.
Roof Hugger, Inc.
| Q: I have a 60's Armco steel building with a standing seam type roof-- j-panel prhaps?
The building has office type rooms framed up inside of it. The roof panels have a 4" standing seam that are structural. These panels rest directly on the outside verticle walls, with no space for insulation between the wall and roof panel. Over time the roof panels have rusted away just above the walls where the heat escapes to the roof and melts the snow, causing an ice dam of sorts. I have patched these areas and then had the whole roof coated with elastomeric Sherwin Williams paint (it was dry ice blasted first). Can you recommend a way to insulate and seal this "wedge area" between the roof and attic floor? All of this is accessable. There is a little... |
I wish I could give you a definitive answer but without a picture or detail I am not 100% sure what you are looking at.
I recall the old Armco panel ribs were facing inward and attached to the girts or horizontal beams. It seems to me if they accessible from the inside that spray on insulation could be applied or rigid insulation could be hand cut and fitted into the pan areas of the panel.
It sounds to me from your description that this may not be possible.
So if that is the case a photo would be good to take a look at the conditions.
Send your picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have one and I'll take a looks to see what might work.
Roof Hugger, Inc.
| Q: I have a metal building construction office building with R-19 roof insulation with vapor barrier on inside of the building. The space above the ceiling is used as a return air plenum. The local code officials said the roof had to be R-30 to meet the city energy code. The architect added 6" fiberglass batts without vapor barrier below the existing insulation. The building owner says this will cause moisture collection at the existing vapor barrier and mold. I say it will not due the the movement of air through the plenum and the air temperature being at about 75 degrees and 50% RH because mold is less likely not form at about 60% RH or less and the HVAC unit will remove any moisture when the air is returned to the unit by refrigeration... |
I don't have any first hand experience with an assembly like this. I would agree with you however there should be no moisture accumulation in the conditioned cavity even in a warm moist climate. 2 comments however:
1)I would check with a local mechanical engineer or moisture control expert in the Dallas area and discuss this assembly; again I have never seen this assembly in 30yrs of Florida construction (a similar enviornment).
2)I would also check with the engineers about "free glass fibers" in this type of system. Loose glass batts tend to shed fibers when they are not contained in some way. Is the actual intake at the air handler filtered? Do the glass fibers create a risk of any kind?
