Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Viking Building Systems Ltd. is a well-established designer and custom builder of post frame construction buildings. Often referred to as post foundation, this is a traditional method of building large, durable and inexpensive structures for practically any use you can imagine.
Quite simply, post foundation construction principals have not changed much over several decades. Pressure treated posts are placed on a concrete footing of some description that supports the roof. Viking Building Systems preferred methodology is to place the 6” x 6” pressure treated posts on a concrete footing, 4 feet below grade. This factors in the frost line and ensures a stable base. The posts must be long enough to support the roof since they serve the function of being the building’s foundation, bracing, and framework to which the walls and roof are fastened. Consequently, there can be enormous flexibility in so many areas – including size (length, width and height); a much shorter construction time; and, of course, general cost reductions – as much as 30% over more traditional, foundation-oriented structures. Best of all, many owners find that the quality of the construction when coupled with the strength and resilience of the structure can even assist in adding value to property value.
“After initial customer consultation and a thorough needs analysis, we’ll have our experienced designer work on every component of the structure, including load bearing, electrical – everything for a complete turnkey solution,” states owner Zig Zilinskas emphatically.”
At the end of the day, every customer has a unique and versatile building, a model of cost efficiency, regardless of its designated end use – whether it’s for rural, residential, commercial or even light industrial applications. “In my 18 years in this business, we strive for no less than 100% customer satisfaction in every project we tackle.”
