Metal Machine Shop Building in Temperance, Michigan

Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc., had the honor of manufacturing and supplying this pre-engineered steel building for a customer in Temperance, Michigan, in September of 2000.

Currently, the extremely durable, versatile metal building serves as a corporate shop for the Ort Tool & Die Corporation, a trusted local provider of tool and die and fabrication and machining services with a more than 60-year history in the community. The machine shop has a reputation for providing premium-quality parts quickly, and it has a long history of fabricating and machining parts that will undergo use in the solar, mining, defense, paper, and oil and gas industries, among multiple others.

Building Specifications

Offering unrivaled strength and sturdiness, this pre-engineered metal shop is comprised of top-quality steel components, so it resists damage caused by typical construction hazards including moisture, mold, pests and fire. Once completely erect, the metal corporate shop boasts a finished size of 50’x100’x16’, and it features a striking, Royal Blue exterior and a Galvalume steel roof with a 2:12 pitch.

In consideration of the sometimes-heavy precipitation that falls throughout much of Michigan, the steel shop features an eave gutter kit and (120) downspout kits distributed across its exterior, which together help prevent water from pooling along the shop’s foundation. The building also has a 10-ton crane capacity, while a 90-mph wind speed rating serves as an additional inclusion made with respect for the climate characteristics and building code requirements in place in the region.
