Industrial Building in Stanley, Wisconsin
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., was proud to fabricate and supply these (8) pre-engineered steel buildings for a client in Stanley, Wisconsin, in July of 2001.
Together, these (8) prefabricated metal buildings currently function as an ethanol plant for Ace Ethanol, an ethanol production facility that focuses on renewable energy and proudly serves the surrounding farming and agricultural community. Wisconsin’s first large-scale producer of ethanol, Ace Ethanol produces as many as 120,000 gallons of ethanol each day, and company owners and administrators have long placed a heavy emphasis on sustainable business practices, going so far as to secure the Wisconsin Governor’s Award for Energy Efficiency in 2009.
By the Numbers
Sustainable and environmentally friendly, these prefabricated steel buildings feature premium-quality steel construction, ensuring optimum strength and durability. Stone Beige in color, they boast striking, attractive exteriors, while their unobstructed clear-span designs maximize space for ethanol production and related efforts.
The first building stands 40’x60’x16’ in size, while overhead, a rugged, long-lasting Galvalume steel roof with a 1:12 pitch provides protection from above. The building features (2) 3070 walk door openings enclosing (2) 3070 walk doors, which make the plant easily accessible for building users, and it also features several customizations intended to help prevent water from pooling around its foundation, among them an eave gutter along two sides of the building and 100 linear feet of downspouts across six locations. Rounding out the metal ethanol plant’s customizations and key features are two accommodations made with respect for Wisconsin’s typical weather patterns and in adherence to local building code requirements, and these include a 110-mph wind speed rating and a 20-psf snow load.
The second building, meanwhile, boasts a finished size of 32’x84’x20’, while its rugged, corrosion-resistant roof has a 1:12 pitch.
