High Rock Landings Shopping Center

Post-frame won an analysis over metal frame for this owner.

 Before choosing a construction method for High Rock Landings shopping center, the owner performed extensive research to compare post-frame construction with metal frame construction. In the final analysis, steel framing just did not offer the details desired by the property developer.

Morton Buildings, Inc., in Lexington, North Carolina was commissioned to construct the center using post-frame construction.

The High Rock Landings strip mall is divided into six 20' x 60' retail units. Distinctive design touches include a deep fascia overhang, a stone wainscot, three gable style dormers with vinyl shakes, and the cedar-wrapped porch header with columns.

The customer also wanted to leave unrented units without concrete to allow flexibility with future rental agreements. Post-frame construction made that possible.

From build to completion, this facility was a success thanks to post-frame construction.
