Commercial Wood Framing


I have a question regarding wood framing in a warehouse. The customer is looking to add a few offices/storage rooms in a warehouse. Drywall inside/chipboard exterior.

Generally we would just frame this in steel but this customer is insisting on wood framing. Whenever we do wood we always fire rate it (type x 5/8" etc) There are no permits on this job as it is only a few small rooms.

I'm wondering if I should talk him into steel framing or go along with his request for stick framing ? what are the pros and cons in a warehouse environment ?

As design concepts became more standardized, the facades and parapets leant themselves to being panelized. Here again, the material of choice a few years ago was wood framing for the pre-built panels.

I would try to talk him into steel studs. The cost isn't that drastic and you can have peace of mind if for some reason, down the road, there is a problem. It is code, where we live, for all industrial/warehouse to use steel
