BVC Structure


The BVC is designed with a vertical column leg and a lattice frame roof. This structure type is commonly used for larger sports halls and storage buildings.


The column leg design provides a large playing or storage area and maximises the usable width. This allows for more interior clearance over the full width of the building.


The BVC can be designed with a single or multiple roof pitches per span. Several spans can also be linked together.


The leg height can be extended for additional interior clearance.
