Industrial Steel Fabrication Facility in Pass Christian, Mississippi
Sunward Steel Buildings, Inc. was the manufacturer and provider of this prefabricated steel building in Pass Christian, Mississippi, in September 2003.
These days, the metal building serves double-duty as a shop and warehouse on the grounds of the Environmental Construction Corp., a steel fabrication service with a nearly 50-year history in the region. In addition to fabricating wastewater treatment plants, the company provides services for a broad range of private and municipal sewer and water districts throughout Mississippi and the Southeastern United States.
A Long-Time Harrison County Steel Fabricator
A trusted name in steel fabrication and wastewater treatment and servicing since 1970, Environmental Construction Corp. uses this steel building for its daily operations and is one of many similar businesses that use prefabricated steel buildings to accommodate various needs. Easily customizable in terms of production space, storage space, climate control, and overall interior design, steel buildings present affordable alternatives to wood facilities that often fare better in the face of most modern construction hazards.
Part of the Gulfport – Biloxi Metropolitan Statistical Area, Pass Christian sits within southern Mississippi’s Harrison County. The community lies about 23 miles outside Biloxi and about 10 miles from Gulfport.
Comprised of rugged, sustainable steel components, the pre-engineered building stands 40’x100’x14.9/18.25’ once erect, delivering unmatched strength and durability. The metal warehouse and shop features a clear-span design largely free from interior obstructions, which maximizes room for equipment and fabrication, and a hardwearing Galvalume steel roof with a 1:12 pitch sits above the facility, offering protection from the elements.
Because of the hurricane activity sometimes seen throughout Pass Christian and the building code requirements currently in place in the area, a high wind speed rating of 130-mph serves as an additional warehouse feature. Easy to erect in contrast to traditional wood construction, pre-engineered metal buildings make ideal shop and warehouse environments because of their easy customizability and inherently tough, robust nature. This particular steel workshop and warehouse requires only minimal maintenance and provides a safe, protected space for fabrication and related efforts.
