I don't think availability's an issue.

Does the local availability play a part in system selection ??

BIll,

Depends on the intended use... Commercial/strip mall? Clinic? Mini mini-storage? Lots of openings or no openings? Tall walls?

Could be masonry is a better option, or CFS, or wood frame, or structural steel columns and beams...

I'm trying to evaluate framing systems for a one-story building of about 1,600 m2 (17,200 ft2). I'd like to figure out if CFS is a viable consideration. At this point I think a steel joist-supported roof is the best bet although I'd certainly entertain suggestions.

Anybody hot rules of thumb for my decision matrix?
