When we're talking about steel, our typical steel spans for structural steel gonna be in that 25 foot to say 35 foot. Might be as low as 20 feet, fairly reasonably, might be as high as 40 or even 45 feet for kind of typical medium spans, but, kind of 30 foot, 35 foot, somewhere in that range. That's a pretty useful span for steel, it's gonna capture a lot of the efficiencies of steel without having too much extra material in there.
