Custom Metal Building Wedding Venues or Metal Bar Event Venues

From rustic to contemporary, you want your new structure to be as unique as the events hosted inside, which is why we do not offer building kits. At Morton Buildings, we understand that every client is different and requires a personalized approach to their project, thus we offer flexible design and build solutions tailored to meet your unique needs and budget.

Unlike other metal building wedding venues, we are also able to offer a nearly unlimited selection of features for your building. From exterior siding options like Hi-Rib™ steel, brick and stone to cupolas, porches and doors, Morton buildings can truly reflect your personal tastes inside and out. The layout of your building’s interior is also completely up to you. Thanks to clear-span construction, your building has no interior load bearing walls, which means no walls to get in the way of your vision. You can also add features like acoustical steel to cut down on noise and Morton’s exclusive Energy Performer® insulation system to provide a comfortable and energy-efficient building year-round.

Our event venue construction utilizes a method known as post-frame. Post-frame buildings feature large, laminated columns instead of wood studs or poles, steel framing, or concrete masonry. There are multiple advantages to this method of construction:

  • Large clear-spans allow for open, adaptable floor plans unhindered by interior load-bearing walls or columns, achieving a unique design and aesthetic. In addition, hybrid technology allows for even greater clear-span buildings up to 150'.
  • A post-frame building forms a tremendously strong structure that efficiently resists wind and seismic forces, even for buildings in excess of 100'.
  • Post-frame construction requires limited wall and roof framing materials, and minimal footing and foundation materials.
  • Our structural concept allows plumbing, electrical and HVAC to be placed between the insulation and the finished wall or ceiling, when using a suspended ceiling. This configuration results in no penetration of the insulation and an increase in energy efficiency and overall insulation performance.

Benefits of Building an Event Venue with Morton

Strength and Durability: We only use No. 1 Southern Yellow Pine lumber for columns that are hydraulically compressed during the lamination process. Our treated lower columns are treated with .80 pounds per cubic ft of preservative and have a 50-year warranty. Other lumber used is quality No. 2 or better Spruce-Pine-Fir (SPF) with staggered joints for enhanced strength. The correct lumber and spacing is designed for each project. For our metal bar event venues, we roll-form our own steel from .019" thick coil, which is up to 25% heavier than the steel many other builders use, and Morton’s panels feature a unique Hi-Rib™ design where the major ribs are 12" on center and 1" high with a gently rounded profile. This combination allows water to flow away from the fasteners and contributes to the strength and long-term attractiveness of a Morton.

Long-Lasting Paint Color: Morton offers the FLUOROFLEX® 1000 paint system, which consists of 70% PVDF topcoat or “color coat” and polyurethane primer that utilizes either a GALVALUME® or hot-dipped galvanized metallic coating. This superior paint system provides your building with multiple layers of protection against fading, chalking, paint peeling, and red rust. Because it resists the effects of ultraviolet rays, rain, and pollution, it retains color and gloss far longer than standard consumer or commercial paint coatings. Morton is proud to offer a 35-year warranty against chalking, fading, and peeling of most FLUOROFLEX® 1000 colors.

Efficient Construction: Also, our type of construction is fast in many ways. First, you can begin any time of year, as weather-related construction delays are rare. Once you begin, the amount of time it takes to get “under roof” is approximately half what you would normally expect from other construction techniques.

Working with Morton

Whether you want a building that stands out or are planning for a more basic structure, Morton will work with you to deliver a custom building that meets your needs now and in the future.

Exceptional quality is the hallmark of a Morton. We’re only as good as our materials so we take full control of the entire process. We source and manufacture our own materials. We roll form our own steel, build our own trusses, doors, and so much more. Morton operates six manufacturing facilities where many of our building components are produced. Our vertical integration allows us to control quality, timelines, and reduce shipping costs.

The difference between a good building and a great building is craftsmanship. Regardless of the materials, a building is only as good as the people who construct it. At Morton, we are true craftsmen and we want to build structures that exceed your expectations.

Morton offers the most comprehensive warranty coverage in the industry. Our warranty claims are handled in-house, are not passed through to another supplier, and include labor and Morton materials.

Your sales consultant will meet with you to discuss your ideas, business plan, and budget. Working with you, the building layout will be generated based on your specifications. As part of the larger Morton network, he or she will guide you through the entire process to:

• Arrange pre-build details, like concept development, building plans and quotes, site plan, permits and zoning details, budgeting and financing

• Oversee the building process, communicating with you throughout

• Check on your satisfaction after completion
