Column Design

What is the correct diameter column for my column height and my column design?

The Orders of Architecture established by the Renaissance Architect Vignola in the 1500’s established a diameter to height ratio for columns based on column design or Order. Modern construction often alters these rules based on the design of the building. For assistance in determining an appropriate column diameter for your project you may click the Column Selection Assistance tab on the navigation bar of the website or for a free personal consultation, please call one of our Architectural Column Specialists at 800-963-3060 for assistance in selecting the ideal diameter-to-height proportions for your column needs.
