Metal Framing Vs. Wood Framing

Why Metal Framing is more common in commercial building rather than using wood.

Metal framing is preferred for commercial projects for plenty of reasons. In most situations, the frame of the building itself is a steel structure with the main beams and supports on the outside walls and ceiling. Interior metal framing is used to separate the rooms and to hang drywall on. Metal partition walls are non-load bearing. Whereas in residential projects, wood framing is load bearing and caries the weight of the floor above and roof, every application requires a different material depending on specifications.
