Expandability

TRACHTE® Buildings are Expandable at the End Walls. This hugely valuable features allows Designers, Engineers, and Owners to plan for convenient, fast, and economical future expansion if/when the need arises. Trachte’s built-in expandability can save Owners a tremendous amount of money, both in the initial cost for a smaller building, and also in the continuous operating costs incurred heating, cooling, and ventilating an unnecessarily large building for the entire time the building is in service. There is now no need to oversize a building because of uncertain future requirements.
