Building Specifications

Used for a broad range of business applications, the metal multipurpose building provides space for storage, fabrication and general operations. In addition to a shop and garage area, the building boasts a mezzanine that offers additional space for conference rooms and offices.

Once fully raised, the steel shop and garage stands 60’x100’x16’ in size, offering a clear-span design that maximizes usable square footage and high overhead clearance that makes it ideal for storage and industrial use. Stone Beige in color, it is both aesthetically pleasing and immaculately preserved, and it has a Galvalume roof with a 2:12 pitch and complementing Burnished Slate trim overhead, offering protection from the Minnesota elements.

Throughout the company headquarters are (4) framed openings, which include (3) 3070 walk door openings offering easy access inside and (1) 24”x30” window kit that lets natural sunlight permeate the space. It also features a number of climate-related customizations, among them an eave gutter and 100 linear feet of downspouts distributed across five locations. The gutter and downspouts help stop rain and snowfall from compounding on the roof of the building or near its foundation, thereby preventing moisture-related construction damage. To maintain compliance with applicable building codes and make the building particularly appropriate for its environment, a 90-mph wind speed rating and a 35-psf snow load serve as additional project customizations.
