Building Width is the distance measured from outer point of the eave strut of one sidewall to the outer point of the eave strut of the other sidewall.
Building length is the distance measured from outer point of the flanges associated in the end wall columns to outer point of flanges in the opposite end wall columns. The summation of end bays and interior bays within the building is actually creates the length of a building.ss
Building height, technically known as eave height, is the distance measured from the bottom of the base plate of the main frame column to the top outer point of the eave strut. When columns are elevated from finished floor, eave height is the distance measured from finished floor top of the eave strut.
End Bay Length:
End bay length is the distance measured from outside of the outer flange of end wall columns to the center line of the first interior frame columns.
Interior Bay Length:
Interior bay length is the distance measured from the center line of two nearest interior columns of the building’s main frame. The most common bay length are usually 6 meter, 7.5 meter and 9 meter. Any bay length up to 15 m is possible.
Roof Slope (x/10):
Roof slope is actually the angle originated from the inclined roof surface with respect to the horizontal surface. Variation of roof slope is possible upto a practical limit but the most common roof slopes are usually 0.5/10 and 1/5.
