Online design

TEST YOUR ideas for a building or building site at a Web site that offers a free interactive building design tool. FBi Buildings, a post-frame construction company in Indiana and Illinois, is making a user-friendly Web-based building design tool available to anyone.

The tool, called FBiPlanner, lets a user create a building; add, delete, move and rotate building components; and include icons of farm equipment, animals and shop items. Text and area measurements may be added. The final design is a detailed, blueprint-style plan that may be saved, printed and e-mailed. The tool may be used to design floor plans for almost any type of post-frame agricultural facility — from a machine shed to an agribusiness facility.

FBi Buildings offers the free online building design tool to help customers properly plan buildings before construction begins. The FBiPlanner is available at www.fbi
