Steel Commercial Building: By the Numbers
Offering unsurpassed structural integrity, this building is well-adapted for industrial use, and once raised, it stands 50’x122’x22’ in size. It has high overhead clearance, leaving plenty of room for oversize equipment, and a wide clear span that maximizes usable floor space.
Boasting a striking, Rustic Red interior, the steel company headquarters effectively merges aesthetics with functionality, and overhead, it has a heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant Galvalume steel roof with a 2:12 pitch and matching Rustic Red trim. Throughout the spacious metal building, offering easy access inside it, are (6) 3070 walk door openings enclosing (6) 3070 walk doors.
The metal industrial building also features several enhancements that make it especially well-suited for life in West Virginia’s variable climate. It has an eave gutter along two sides and 140 linear feet of downspouts spanning six locations, which keep rainwater or snow from collecting in places where it could potentially lead to damage. It also boasts a 70-mph wind speed rating and a 20-psf snow load, which allow it to maintain compliance with applicable building code requirements.
