Prefabricated Steel Truck Wash in Bakersfield, California

Sent by Sunward Steel to Bakersfield, California, in July 2021, this pre-engineered steel building now operates as a truck wash and is conveniently located close to some of Southern California’s major trucking routes.

The building features rigid-frame construction and a spacious interior design that can easily accommodate trucks and trailers. Self-supporting stone wainscoting on the outside boosts curb appeal, giving the steel carwash a modern, contemporary look and feel.

The metal truck wash’s durable steel construction helps it maintain its structural integrity despite heavy daily use, while its prime location and functional design make it a popular destination for truck drivers traveling through Bakersfield.

Building Specifications

Standing 80’x201’4”x20’ with a 25’x24’x14’8” office area addition on one end, the steel carwash has (14) access points in total. There are (4) 14’x16’ overhead garage doors, (1) 10’x10’ overhead garage door and (9) 3’4”x7’2” walk doors that allow general access inside.

Overhead, a gable roof with a 1:12 pitch offers reliable protection from the elements. Polar White gutters and downspouts facilitate drainage and match the building’s trim package, adding visual appeal to the structure while keeping rain from collecting on top of the carwash.

Engineered to meet local building codes, the metal carwash has a 110-mph wind load and also adheres to the seismic building code requirements in place in California at the time of construction.  Located north of Los Angeles in Kern County, the city of Bakersfield is a major transportation hub for the region. The city sits along the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley, about 280 miles southeast of Sacramento.
