Eco Friendly Garage / Beattys Builders

Eco Friendly Garage

What makes a green garage? Solar panels and wind turbines? Maybe. But you don’t need high tech materials to build an eco friendly garage. Instead, a construction technique that’s been around for years is one of the most eco friendly buildings you can find.

Post Frame Design

First developed in the 1930s, post frame buildings were pioneered using utility poles for agricultural buildings. As agriculture expanded, so did the demand for larger, cheaper buildings. In addition to cost effective construction, they were built in a way that created less construction waste.

But as the buildings evolved from primarily agricultural structures to garages, homes and more, other environmental benefits became apparent.

Post Frame Environmental Benefits

The cornerstone of the 1930s pole building was both low cost and less waste. That’s still true today. For example, Beatty’s Builders has more than 300 garage, home and other building designs that are engineered for optimal material use. Surprisingly, the variance on one of their buildings is only ?”! With tolerances that small you can see how waste is minimized.

Not only do structures have less waste but they use fewer, larger, more durable materials instead of a higher quantity of smaller pieces. This not only reduces waste but also creates a stronger structure. Plus, post frame structures are built using wood framing. Wood is a renewable resource with a minimal carbon footprint.

In addition, post frame columns are spaced several feet apart reducing the total amount of material required. The traditional pole building has eight foot cavities that have to be filled in with stud walls after completion. However, a system like Beatty’s Builders E3 Wall System is pre-manufactured and assembled in place. This further reduces the amount of materials and decreases the machinery and labor required for construction.

Lastly, site preparation typically requires less excavation and grading than other structures reducing the impact on trees, their root systems and other plants.

Climate Controlled And Energy Efficient

A post frame garage has other features that make them an easier structure to insulate and climate control. The wall cavities in a post frame structure are perfect for insulating. The gap between the inside and outside walls on a typical post-frame building averages more than six inches, providing exceptional space for insulating material. When the insulation is interrupted, it’s from wood post columns which conduct very little heat. This makes heating and cooling easier than a steel frame or concrete block buildings. In fact, ComCheck, a service from the U.S. Department of Energy, found post frame buildings the most energy efficient building choice.

Eco Friendly Garages, Homes, Commercial Buildings And More!
