When it comes to commercial warehouse construction in your area and the surrounding area, it is important to choose the best material for the job. Concrete provides very sturdy protection against high winds of up to 200 miles per hour. The concrete core of a building is typically two-feet in thickness to protect the area from fire and explosions. It can be used to encase elevators, stairs, and power systems. Concrete is also naturally fire-proof without the need to add fire-resistant materials. It can stand up to very high temperatures and can meet even the most stringent of fire codes.
