Light metal structures (LMS) are buildings with comparatively small bays in which wall and roof protection is made with the use of sheet shaped metal and lightweight synthetic heat insulation. An LMS building is a building constructed on the frame structure of load-bearing frames with different protective constructions.


From the point of view of construction, the modern refrigerating warehouse is an object with a large enough area (on the average 10,000 m2) that should combine in itself two essential elements:

  • relatively low price of construction due to the use of standard (prefabricated) materials and technologies of construction (there is no need to invest $ 1000 in something new if it can be constructed for $ 150 with the use of traditional materials);
  • functional use based on the advantage of warehouse placement, its capacity and operational turnover, and use which does not require any special, outstanding features necessary for other commercial real estate objects (office and retail centre). You as the client do not need to know what kind of marble your warehouse is made of and what colour it is painted if its capacity and turnover are significantly higher than those of the competitor's warehouse. Traditional construction technologies used in industrial construction do not allow for the erection of refrigerating warehouses above 12-16 metres. There are a number of reasons for this which result from the construction technology and the type of elevating devices used:
  • first, with the use of standard 12-metre concrete pillars we have considerable restriction on height;
  • second, the use of traditional cargo handling facilities (forklift loaders, stackers) does not allow the performance of work at heights over 12-14 metres.

    • lower cost in comparison with permanent structures at comparable service life;
    • short terms of delivery and installation of buildings and constructions;
    • simplified preparation of the preliminary permissions for construction;
    • possibility to consider in full volume both the architectural and operational requirements of the consumer;
    • possibility for transformation of buildings and constructions right up until dismounting and transportation to another site.
    • construction of warehouses, pre-fabricated buildings;
    • placing of warehouses for industrial products and foodstuffs, different equipment;
    • agricultural products storage and processing;
    • garages for cars and heavy haulers;
    • refrigerating equipment installation;
    • industrial production placing;
    • placing of exhibitions, fairs and markets, sports and fitness complexes.
