Prefabricated Steel Agricultural Arch Building in Paris Crossing, Indiana

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was proud to fabricate and supply this pre-engineered steel arch building in Paris Crossing, Indiana, in September of 1999.

These days, the durable, reliable arch-style steel building functions as an agricultural property, offering year-round protection for valuable farm equipment including tractors, balers, plows, mowers, sprayers and similar machinery. In addition to keeping farm and agricultural equipment safe and protected from rain, snow and related environmental concerns, the building helps preserve the resale value of the farm equipment in the event the owner wants to sell any of it somewhere down the line. 

Affordable, Long-Lasting & Low-Maintenance Metal Farm Buildings 

Often preferred among farmers, ranchers and others with agricultural operations or interests, pre-engineered metal arch buildings combine steadfast durability with supreme functionality. Commonly used as barns, storage sheds, animal-housing areas, stables and more, metal farm buildings are generally faster and more affordable to erect than alternatives, and they are also much easier to maintain over their lifetimes, resulting in substantial savings for buyers.

This particular arch-style farm building has stood strong for two decades, upholding its structural integrity and usability extremely well over the years. Part of southern Indiana’s Montgomery Township, Paris Crossing falls within the borders of Jefferson County. The area sits about south of the town of Vernon and about 80 miles from Indianapolis.

Building Specifications

Easy to erect thanks to its arch, or Quonset hut design, the steel building features premium-quality steel construction and stands 40’x60’ in size. The building’s arched design makes it particularly durable and suited for high wind and snow loads, and it is also inherently easy to maintain over time, requiring only minimal effort from the building owner.

Enclosing one end of the building are 548 square feet of 29-gauge Galvalume Hi-Rib panels, and that end also boasts inner and outer flashing, which helps reduce the formation of condensation, which can lead to mold growth. The other end of the metal arch building, meanwhile, has outer flashing. Additional project features include (2) stationary vents with jacks, (2) knee skylights and a 110-mph wind speed rating, the last of which helps the arch building adhere to local building code requirements while making it well-suited for life in the Midwest.
