Building Length
Building Length is Defined by One of the Following:
• Out to out of steel line In case of flush girts the length of the building is the distance from outside
of end wall column flange at one side to the end wall column flange at the opposite side.
In case of bypass girts the length of the building is the distance from outside of end wall girt at
one side to the end wall at the opposite side.
• Center to Center (distance from centerline of main frame (post) at one endwall to the center line
of main frame (post) at the opposite endwall).
• Inside to inside (the inside distance between the endwall columns at one endwall to the opposite
columns at the other endwall).
Building Height
Building Height is Defined by
One of the Following:
Eave height: is the height from
outside the building between
finish floor level and to the top of
eave strut.
Clear height: is the height inside
the building from the FFL to the
bottom of the rafter at the outer
column.
Roof Slope
Is the inclination of the roof with respect to the horizontal; the most common roof slope is 0.5 : 10
and 1.0 : 10 and it can be changed according to the design and customer requirements.
Interior Bay Length
Is the distance between centerlines of 2 adjacent intermediate frame columns.
Exterior Bay Length
Is the distance from outside of endwall column flange (in case of flush girts) to the centerlines of the
first interior frame column and the distance from outside of endwall girt (in case of bypass girts) to
the centerlines of the first interior frame column.
