Farm Equipment Storage & Repair Building in Fordyce, Nebraska
Fabricated by Sunward Steel in September of 2014 and sent to a buyer in Fordyce, Nebraska, this pre-engineered metal building is a versatile and efficient space for equipment and vehicle storage and repair.
The building, which sits atop a 2’ stem wall for added stability and protection, boasts a clear-span design that creates an open canvas inside, allowing for the seamless movement of equipment and vehicles. The elevated foundation helps prevent moisture infiltration, ensuring a dry and secure interior. The clear-span design, meanwhile, maximizes usable space, paving the way for easy maneuvering and storage arrangements in the building.
Beyond functionality, the building blends seamlessly with its surroundings thanks to Light Stone exterior paint and Charcoal Gray trim. Windows strategically placed throughout provide natural light, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day. The inclusion of 6” snow gutters and downspouts encourages efficient rainwater drainage, preventing damage to the structure and its contents.
The steel storage building also features a wall liner panel, which enhances interior comfort while serving as an additional barrier against wear and tear.
The 96’x100’x20’ metal building’s roof and walls feature rugged, 26-gauge HiRib paneling, and overhead, a gable roof with a modest 1:12 pitch offers protection from the elements. The building has the following doors and windows distributed throughout.
(3) 3070 commercial walk doors
(4) 16’x16’ overhead doors
(1) 24’x16’ overhead door
(2) 3’x4’ windows
Sunward also fabricated the building to meet the precise building codes and regulations in place in Fordyce, adding a 90-mph wind rating and a 24.5-psf roof snow load. While this steel building serves as a reliable and secure space for storage and repairs, it also serves as a prime example of the superior craftsmanship of Sunward Steel buildings.
