“We show you how to stop looking at the metal building as a skeleton or stand alone building, and, instead, look at how it interacts with the entire project, from ground work to installation, to exterior and interior finishes, and how all of those things affect and are affected by the metal building.” Kevin Gatewood, Senior Estimator at Star Building Systems
You don’t have to stop and ask for directions. Drive around. Take a few side roads. Test out your tires, burn fuel, and throw in a U-turn where the law allows. For centuries, this aimless driving has been a technique that guarantees swift success. Why use a map? Or compass? Or GPS? Wherever you’re going, you’ll get there eventually.
Or, you could use a map. Or a compass. Or a GPS. Or, in this case, a class. When you want to arrive at a destination, you want the shortest, most successful, route there. That’s what we provide at Star’s Builder School. You want a successful year for your business to grow, for your bids to be the most competitive, for your designs to come together quickly, for your jobs to run smoothly.
And we can help. We’ll give you the directions.
Our builder school will not only set you on the right path by providing working knowledge on metal building terminology and building products, but we offer insider builder tips from our decades of industry experience that will help your next project be the strongest, yet.
Here are a few examples of things you will learn:
- Need a door in a certain spot that also happens to hold a braced bay? And not crazy about using an expensive portal frame to make it happen?
Our experts say not to worry, there is a better solution. Within SBS (Star Building System) there is the ability to modify how the rod bracing is done so you can get the accessory you need without using the more expensive option of a portal frame.
It’s true! You’ll find out all about it at Star Builder School.
- Need to find some savings in a building and don’t know where to start?
Look at the purlin spacing. If it is less than 4’-0” on center, increase the purlin depth. That little tip will save you a few unnecessary wrong turns.
There’s more at the Star Builder School.
- Need more cost effectiveness in your metal building?
There are ways. Other construction elements in your project, such as masonry, stud walls, glass store fronts, could be used with the metal building to create additional time and cost savings.
We can get you on the right path to a great year, while saving you all that frustration over refolding the map.
