What-are-the-limitations-of-the-metal-building-system

The basic limitations are too much height or width.
We have designed buildings up to 60 feet in height and 220 feet in width depending on your snow and wind for your area, this may not be possible.  For loads we have designed and supplier a building with 225 roof snow per square foot and another building rated for 200 mph wind in the Caribbean.  We have also design commodity building designed for interior pressure.  One time we did an ammo storage building designed for interior pressure.
We have to stay within a rectangular or square shape, no rounded or diagonal walls.  But in very custom cases – we have designed and supplied a building in Cyprus overlooking the Mediterranean with a curved roof.
Presently we cannot do hip roof systems with peak and valley roof connections.  But again in very custom cases we have done hips, valleys etc.  It is a matter of cost.
